Baton Relay

Ace shuttler Saina Nehwal, shooter Gagan Narang and India cricketer VVS Laxman were among several sportspersons who were the part of the Queen's Baton Relay that arrived in Hyderabad on Saturday.

The QBR, which entered the state capital this afternoon, was given a rousing reception at the Shamshabad International airport near here after it arrived from Raipur.

The Baton was taken in a convoy to Kotla Vijaya Bhaskara Reddy (KVBR) Indoor Stadium in Yousufguda, where Andhra Pradesh Governor ESL Narasimhan formally flagged-off the Relay in the state by handing over the Baton to world number two woman shuttler Saina amid thunderous applause.
