Badminton has given us one of our greatest champs – Prakash Padukone.
The incredibly talented Syed Modi and the gritty Pullela Gopichand followed in the footsteps of the legendary former World No 1 and brought honours to the country in this fast-paced game.

Root for her and follow the Indian team’s progress in the premier World Badminton Championship here on Sify Sports.
Isn’t it time that we showed that we care?
