"Saina was suffering from slight fever and cold and today during the practice session she complained of slight problem in the muscles," Vijay Sinha, General secretary of UP Badminton Academy, said.

"Doctors have advised her at least three days rest, so she would not be a part of this tournament," Sinha said.
