While India’s first Olympic medalist decided to jump citing workload management, Kashyap is still recovering from a hamstring injury.

While India’s first Olympic medalist decided to jump citing workload management, Kashyap is still recovering from a hamstring injury.

Saina Nehwal and P. Kashyap along with Indian Thomas Cup hero HS Prannoy withdrew late from the Indonesian Open Super Series 500 event starting in Jakarta on June 7, 2022.

Saina cited workload management as Kashyap is yet to regain his fitness. Prannoy has retired to focus on the next four Tour events.

“I had injured my hamstring right before the tryouts and it took seven weeks to heal, then I had an ankle problem,” Kashyap told PTI.

I’m fine now. But I have to get my fitness back. I hope to play some of the next four events.

“Saina pulled out because there are so many tournaments that she thought it was better for her to play next week and skip this one. She’s fine,” Kashyap added.

Prannoy, who played a key role in India’s historic Thomas Cup triumph last month, has also stepped down to focus on the next four Tour events.

“I’m going to skip this event in Indonesia. I’ll play the next one. I’m in good shape. I’m looking forward to the next few weeks,” Prannoy said.
