PETALING JAYA: Shuttler Iskandar Zulkarnain Zainuddin (pic) is going to the Sudirman Cup in Gold Coast, Australia, after all.
The world No. 36, who has just recovered from a back injury, was initially left out of the world mixed team championships from May 21-28. He was only scheduled to return to action at the Thailand Open from May 30-June 4.
But the coaches have now given Iskandar the green light to join the squad for the Sudirman Cup. The 25-year-old will be the No. 2 in the men’s singles to world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei.
