A day after the Badminton Association of India (BAI) recommended a life ban on top Indian doubles shuttler Jwala Gutta, her father Kranti told reporters that his daughter had done no wrong and there was no reason for her to apologise.

A controversy had erupted during the August 25 tie of the inaugural Indian Badminton League when Delhi Smashers had threatened to pull out against Banga Beats over the last-minute replacement of injured singles player, Hu Yun of Hong Kong with Denmark's Jan Jorgensen.

"Why should Jwala apologise? She has not done anything wrong," said her father.
