New Delhi: Indian badminton player Ashwini Ponappa and her doubles partner Jwala Gutta suspect foul play in the way Japan lost to Chinese Taipei in their group match at the London Olympics and plan to appeal against the result.
Gutta and Ponnappa had beaten Singapore pair of Shinta Mulia Sari and Lei Yao 21-16, 21-15 in their group B match. But the Indian pair was out of the competition because they conceded 2 points more than they should have in the group stage.
Speaking to NDTV, Ponappa said: "I suspect foul play in the way Japan lost to Chinese Taipei. Me and Jwala would like to appeal against the result."
