Bangalore: India's top male badminton player Parupalli Kashyap feels big names associated with the sport would not be forthcoming in sharing tricks with their team-mates from different countries in the upcoming Indian Badminton League.

"Cricket is a team game and it is obvious for the team to win as a unit, and you find many top players sharing their tricks with young ones. Badminton is an individual sport and players wouldn't like to share tricks with other players lest they end up losing to them in other tournaments," Kashyap told PTI here.

Kashyap, one of the six icon players in the IBL, said the Chinese have been secretive about their training, which has helped them dominate the sport for a long time.
