Birmingham. The Indian Women’s Table Tennis team suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of Malaysia in the quarter-finals. Team India had come to save the title, but had to face defeat in the quarter-finals. With this defeat, a new controversy has also been added with the Indian table tennis team. In fact, team coach Anindit Chakraborty was not present during the knockout match. On which questions are starting to arise.
During the match, instead of him, the coach of the men’s team, S Raman, was seen sitting near the court. SD Moudgil, a member of the Committee of Administrators running the Indian Table Tennis Association, says that this should not have happened. During the match, Anindit Chakraborty should have been present during the women’s match. He said that he will talk to the team in this matter.
Coach Raman, who was present during the knockout match, is the personal coach of India’s star player G Sathiyan. When the match between India and Malaysia became very tough, at that time he was seen coaching Rit Rishya. The Indian team did not even think of such a defeat. After the defeat, Manika Batra’s team did not even stop there to talk to the media. After the match, Raman said that the match was very close. The combination was quite different. The combination of a defensive, a left-hander and a right-hander was quite a challenge.
