"Let's do more of this .." Kashyap replied.
The Badminton World Federation (BWF) has suspended all competitions till the end of July.
The BWF had come under significant criticism from the players in March as it went through with a number of competitions including and most prominently the All England Championships while the spread of coronavirus was increasingly becoming a concern throughout the world back then.
Top players including Saina Nehwal, Kidambi Srikanth, Kashyap and H.S. Prannoy had all been openly criticial of the BWF for going through with tournaments.
All sports in India and in most places across the globe have been stalled due to the coronavirus pandemic which has brought the world to a standstill.
