Sanjay Mishra, general secretary of the Badminton Association of India (BAI), stated,

“This two-week training camp has helped to create a nice build-up ahead of the tournament. I am confident this camp has also helped the team to bond and know each other better”

He added,

“We have a formidable squad that can challenge the best. I wish each of them as well as the coaching staff, all the best for the Championships.”

Group C includes Malaysia, Bangladesh, Hong Kong, and India. For the knockout round, the top two teams from each group will advance.

According to Vivek Kumar Dewangan, Chief Managing Director of REC Limited,

“The target is to groom and nurture our young players right from the sub-junior level. We have to identify the talent and provide them world-class training facilities and environment so that they can bring medals under Target Olympic Podium Scheme (TOPS).”

India has previously won three medals in the competition: two gold, one silver, and one bronze. The first person to win a gold medal is PV Sindhu in 2012, and Lakshya Sen added to that total in 2018.

The Indian Badminton team thus travels with high hopes and expectations to perform outstandingly at the Junior Asia Championships.
