Additional information

NATIVE CAPTAIN
One of two non-Chinese players on the national team and first Malay to captain the national side. "It’s tough for most non-Chinese players because there is a communication barrier. I didn’t face such problems because I studied in a Chinese school and can speak Mandarin well, but I really want to see other races join this sport in the future. For the time being, only me and Kalai (RAJINTIRAN) represent the non-Chinese in this team. It is good to see more Malays in this sport."
