Miffed with the organisers’ last-minute decision to slash her base price at the IBL auction despite being listed in the Icon players category, ace doubles shuttler Jwala Gutta said on Wednesday she will let her racquet do the talking in the Indian Badminton League.
“The minimum thing we expected was to be informed."
"Nevertheless, I am very happy to be part of IBL. I am very much looking forward to it. Badminton court is my territory and that’s where I will do most of my talking. I will let my racquet speak for myself,” Jwala told reporters here.
Controversy erupted after Gutta and another doubles specialist Ashwini Ponappa lashed out at the IBL for what they termed was “unfair” to them.
“If I speak up people either say she is complaining or she is a rebel. I have already been labelled rebel. But whatever happened wasn’t expected,” she said.
