New Delhi (IANS): Top Indian shuttlers, including Saina Nehwal and PV Sindhu, will not participate in the upcoming China Masters Super Series to be held September 10 to 15, an official said on Tuesday. Only men's singles shuttlers Ajay Jayaram and Anand Pawar will be going for the Tier-II event to be held in Changzhou.

"We took a decision on this some time back and did not send our entries. The international calendar is packed with several tournaments and our shuttlers need time to rest. They will be training during that time and will play in the Japan Open Super Series. The players who are participating in China are going in their own capacity," Badminton Association of India (BAI) vice-president T.P.S. Puri told IANS.

The Japan Open Super Series will be held in Tokyo Sep 17-22. Sindhu said it was the decision of the chief national coach Pullela Gopichand. "Our coach decides which tournaments we are to play and he decided we won't be going for China," the World Championship bronze winner said.
