Mumbai: Malaysian coach and now chief coach of  Indian Badminton League's franchise Mumbai Masters Tey Seu Bock has blamed an air conditioning cut-off for causing Lee Chong Wei to cramp up and pull out of yet another heart-breaking world badminton final.




Till Sunday he was struggling to even stand and he had to be stretchered off when Chinese Lin Dan was at match-point in the World Badminton Championships final at Guangzhou.

“Defeat is a defeat but I can accept it but I cannot tolerate the organisers switching off the air conditioner in the second game,” Bock was quoted as saying.

The shuttlers had to battle varying speed conditions of the shuttle. India's chief national coach Pullela Gopichand said:

“The conditions were a little varied. Some shuttles were fast.

The speed was not very consistent. It was a challenge for the players but then the conditions were the same for all the players.” said

India's quarterfinalist in men's singles, Parupalli Kashyap too agreed that the shuttle speed was not consistent.
