Kuala Lumpur: Malaysia Sudirman Cup team is getting excited with the addition of Lee Chong Wei after his suspension officially ended on April 30, 2015. Lee went back to train with the Malaysia team on Friday. In fact, he was one of the earliest players who showed up to attend the Sudirman Cup training session at Stadium Juara, Bukit Kiara.
“It is nice to have Chong Wei back with us, he is now the full-time member of the team,” said the technical director of Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM).
