The IBL governing council ratified the decision here today, following a request from Awadhe Warrior to pick up the former world No.1 in men's doubles out of a reserve list.
Commenting on the decision to select Boe, Awadhe Warriors' Mr Abhijit Sarkar, said, "We are extremely delighted to bag one of the best doubles players in the world. I'm confident Mathias Boe will be a great asset for Awadhe Warriors in the forthcoming IBL."
