More embarrassment for India's Commonwealth Games preparations with ambassador Saina Nehwal claiming the chaos around next month's event in Delhi proved India was not capable of hosting major international events, before retracting the statement hours later.

Nehwal, the world badminton number three, told journalists she'd seen the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne and the Olympic Games in China and compared to that, Delhi's not up to the mark.

She did say she was sure everything would be ready by the October 3rd start.
