I wear trouser while playing badminton, whereas all the foreign players wear skirts or shorts. People say that wearing trouser, to some extent, act as a hindrance, but since I have been wearing trousers for a couple of years now, so I am used to of it. I respect the thinking that we, girls, should cover our legs. So even in the future if I decide to change my attire, I would wear a skirt with tights.Mahoor
