KUALA LUMPUR: It used to be the Sidek and Hashim brothers. Now, it’s the turn of the Abdul Latif brothers — Mohd Arif and Mohd Zakry.

Yesterday, the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) took a big chance by naming Arif as the fourth men’s singles player in the Thomas Cup squad.

The debutant will join the country’s top three players – Lee Chong Wei, Wong Choong Hann and Mohd Hafiz Hashim – for the Finals, which will be held in Jakarta from May 11-18.

The inclusion of Arif’s elder brother, Zakry, is not a surprise though it will still be his first Thomas Cup Finals appearance with Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari in the men’s doubles.

They will join the country’s top two pairs – Choong Tan Fook-Lee Wan Wah and Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong.

ARIF Latif is not interested with simply being a reserve.

If need be, the 19-year-old believes he is good enough to deliver a point for Malaysia in the Thomas Cup Finals in Jakarta on May 11-18.
