Weak mental strength or bad tactics?
Haven't we seen so many occasions whereby our Malaysians will lead a match or competition only to suffer a defeat when the final whistle is blown.
Our shuttlers suffer from that most of the time and the same excuse whipped up by the coaches and officials is "lack of mental strength".
I'd expect more from professional athletes.
NST's Jugjet Singh, had in the first paragraph of his story Captain marvel needed, said;
MALAYSIA learnt a bitter Indian lesson in the quarter-finals of the (hockey) Champions Challenge I in South Africa, and now have three months to add the missing spice in their game.
