The real fireworks of the inaugural Indian Badminton League will begin on Thursday when Hyderabad Hotshots take on Awadhe Warriors in Delhi. That encounter will see teenage sensation PV Sindhu (Awadhe) take on the queen of Indian badminton, Saina Nehwal (Hyderabad).
Who will win the high-profile clash?
The badminton world seems divided. Doubles specialist and commonwealth gold medallist Jwala Gutta feels Sindhu will come out victorious. Speaking to NDTV, she said: "It's always good to have somebody new winning. And Sindhu is riding high on her world championship bronze. So, it will be good to see Sindhu giving a good performance on Thursday."
