New Delhi, Jan 9 (MNN) Commonwealth Games gold medallist and London 2012 Olympian Parupalli Kashyap will be out of action for around two more months after sustaining a calf injury at the All India senior ranking tournament in December 2021.

He said that the injury is a Grade 1 pull, which will keep him off the court for six weeks, adding that he will need another three weeks to be fit to play a match.
The Indian badminton player will thus miss the India Open, Syed Modi International and the Odisha Open. These three tournaments kick off the 2022 BWF season.

Kashyap could return to action at the Spain Masters on March 1.

The 35-year-old has had a rough time with injuries in the past few years, preventing him from having consistent runs at tournaments.

While his playing career has been stop-start, Parupalli Kashyap has been seen coaching his wife Saina Nehwal at a few tournaments.

In 2014, Parupalli Kashyap became the first Indian man since Prakash Padukone to win the Commonwealth Games singles gold. He was also the first male Indian shuttler to reach the quarter-finals at an Olympics during London 2012.
