"Best team ever"

Those were the words of national polo team manager Ahmad Jamili Rashid.

Jamili is bullish of the polo riders securing a top three position in the FIP World Cup Zone D qualifier come June 11-26.

“We’ve been training hard with stints in Argentina. We have left no stone unturned. This team is capable of going far not only in the Qualifier but we are also looking at things beyond this,” said Jamili.

Malaysia is represented by captain Huzaini Yunos (+4 Handicap), Shaik Reismann (+3 Handicap), Amran Selamat (+2 Handicap), Muhammad Edham Shaharuddin (+4 Handicap), Saladin Mazlan (+3 Handicap) and Tengku Ahmad Shazril (+3 Handicap).

The countries competing in Zone D, apart from Malaysia, are Australia, New Zealand, India, Pakistan, South Africa, Nigeria and Singapore. The top three book will partake in the FIP World Cup in October.

The qualifiers will be played at three different venues – namely the Royal Pahang Polo Club in Pekan, the Putrajaya Equestrian Park and the Royal Selangor Polo Club.
