Kuala Lumpur Hockey Club’s Harvinder Singh will replace injured Mohamed Marhan Mohamed Jalil in the men’s national team for the Australia Hockey League (AHL) which starts in Perth on Thursday, reports The Star.
Harvinder was initially included in the development team, but earned a promotion to the senior squad after Marhan fractured his left leg in the TNB Cup.
Sapura’s Harmesh Singh has been brought in to replace Harvinder’s spot in the development squad.
Earlier, there was also another change in the development team when Mohamed Syed Mohamad Syafiq Syed Cholan had to withdraw after injuring his hand in the Malaysia Hockey League. Mohamed Hafizuddin Zaidi has been called up as the replacement.
The three Malaysian squads – the men’s national and development teams and the women’s national side – will be making their debut in the AHL. India and New Zealand are also competing together with hosts Australia.
