MUMBAI: The Badminton Association of India (BAI) has decided to shift the second edition of the premier Indian Badminton League (IBL) to early next year, over concerns of a busy international schedule. The Indian Badminton League for this year was supposed to be held from 30 September to 15 October.



BAI vice president - administration TPS Puri said, "The first edition of the IBL was a grand success and badminton lovers are eagerly awaiting the second season. However, we want to ensure that all the top players are available for the tournament and that looks difficult this year due to the busy international schedule.”



"Though a final call is yet to be taken, we are considering the option of holding the tournament early next year," he added.

Contrary to his statement, sources close to BAI say that the Badminton World Federation (BWF), international sports body of the organisation, had approached the Badminton Association of India to shift the dates, as it coincides with the Denmark Open Super Series, which will be held from 14-19 October.



The inaugural edition of the IBL which was held in August, last year, was a huge success. The league had the backing and strong support of corporates, players and badminton fans in India.
