KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia's third men's singles shuttler Daren Liew was hampered by another bad news for his already disastrous start of the year.

Daren, who has felt to No. 63 in the world ranking, would probably not be able to join his compatriots Lee Chong Wei and Chong Wei Feng for the August world meet in Copenhagen, Denmark. The qualifying period for the world meet ended with the last week's China Masters Grand Prix Gold.

 

According to Badminton World Federation (BWF), a country can have a maximum of three players if all of them are ranked in the top 24 of the world rankings. And they can only have a maximum of two if both are in the top 150 bracket.

In the men’s doubles, only Lim Khim Wah-Goh V Shem and Hoon Thien How-Tan Wee Kiong are eligible for the world championship.

In women’s doubles, reigning SEA Games champions Woon Khe Wei-Vivian Hoon are ranked 31st behind two other pairs – former internationals Ng Hui Lin-Ng Hui Ern and Amelia Anscelly-Soong Fie Cho.

But BAM is expected to withdraw the Ng Hui Lin-Ng Hui Ern pair and gives green light for Vivian-Khe Wei.
