For the first time in Indian badminton 3 Indians are there in BWF rankings including male and female which is great achievement. Indian badminton is on the rise and has done well in the past 1 year. Here we look at the top 10 players in women’s and male section as of 3rd April 2015.

  2.        Carliona Marin(ESP)-73618
  3.        Li Xuerui(CHN)- 71414

With the above rankings we see that in men’s singles 3 players in the top 10 are from China, Denmark, 1 from Indonesia, Chinese Taipei, Korea and India. It is a pleasing site that an Indian male player is in the top 4 rankings. With other players like Kashyap, Prannoy, playing well we hope to see soon them in this list. While in female singles rankings for the first time an Indian player is at the top spot and also PV Sindhu in 9th spot. But the main concern is that there no Indian players in doubles in men’s and women’s also.
