All set for revenge
the Asian Championship crown in Bangkok last year for the first time since 1985.
Former captain Nurul Adha Abu Bakar did not make the final list while Puah Pei San, S. Shandralelka and L. Karishma will make their debuts.
With the absence of Nurul Adha, the team will now be led by Nur Syafazliyana Ali who believes that Malaysia are ready for the challenge.
But it will not be so easy as Singapore have been training and competing abroad to prepare for the Sea Games.
Malaysia, coached by Tracey Robinson, were in Melbourne and Gold Coast recently for playing tours where they won four of five friendly matches. Their only defeat was to the Australian men’s team.
They also won the KL Invitational pre-Sea Games event in July by thrashing Thailand 75-33 to emerge the champions.
Tracey said her girls need to adapt with a variety of game styles as it will be key to success in the Sea Games.
Other confirmed teams in the seven-day netball competition are Brunei, Thailand and the Philippines.
The competition ends on Aug 20.
