IBL: I'll never come to India, says annoyed Boe after snub

July 24, 2013 09:35 IST

Denmark's Mathias Boe is extremely annoyed. And in his anger this shuttler from Denmark has vowed to not visit India after appearing in Thomas Cup next year.

The main reason for his fury is the huge snub he received at the Indian Badminton League players' auction.

IBL: I'll never come to India, says annoyed Boe after snubThe London Olympics men's doubles silver medallist turned to his Twitter page and vented his anger and said, "Didn't get sold to IBL. I'm really pissed, as I have supported the event all the way though, and almost left the national team to participate."

Boe, who won the All England Super Series in 2011 with compatriot Carsten Mogensen, had a base price of $ 50,000 but the 33-year-old did not find any takers.

But his partner Mogensen was bought by Banga Beats from Bangalore at a base price of $ 50,000.

A lot of top shuttlers like Thailand's Boonsak Ponsana (ranked fourth), Japan's Kenechi Tago (ranked fifth), Indonesia's Tommy Sugiarto (ranked eighth) and Sony Dwi Kuncoro (ranked 10th) went unsold.
