KUALA LUMPUR: The Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) are not saying it yet but singles players Mohd Hafiz Hashim and Kuan Beng Hong are set to keep their places in the national team.

After all the hoopla over the future of these two players, the BAM have named the duo as reserves for the Sudirman Cup, which will be held in Guangzhou from May 10-17.

Early this year, former All-England champion Hafiz and Beng Hong were issued an ultimatum by the BAM — to either shape up or ship out.

TODAY, Christians all over the world celebrate Easter – a day of resurrection and that is exactly what the world of badminton needs.

The badminton powerhouses, including Malaysia, are currently witnessing a dearth of talented men’s singles shuttlers.

The sport badly needs saviours to breathe life and inject excitement back into the men’s singles event once again.

In Malaysia, there is no one else except for world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei to carry the torch.

It’s the same elsewhere too.

In fact, do not be surprised if the battle for supremacy at the 2012 London Olympic Games boils down to the same old protagonists – Chong Wei, China’s Lin Dan, Denmark’s Peter-Gade Christensen and Indonesia’s Taufik Hidayat!

That is the sorry state of world badminton.
