“We will announce the squad in a press conference on Wednesday (Jan 15),” said MTBC secretary general Cheah Ban Cheng.
It is the first time the MTBC are using roll-offs to select the bowlers for the elite and back-up squads. In previous years, the bowlers were picked based on their past year’s performances.
Bowlers ranked from ninth to 14th in the roll-off, meanwhile, will be considered for the back-up squad.
They are former elite member Isaac Russell Paul, Muhd Nur Aiman Khairuddin, Ahmad Muaz Mohd Fishol, Mohd Syafiq Sajeli, Daniel Tan and Johnathan Chan for the men.
In the women’s section, it would be Alisha Iman Cheong, Zandra Aziela Ibrahim Hakimi, Siti Aishatun Husin, Hee Kar Yen, Sharon Koh and Victoria Chin.
