    Wow, PBSI picking Joko/AG instead of Luluk/Alvent?????
    Someone high-up must really not pleased with them.....
    I can't help but think this is weakening INA's team though...

    Two major surprises:
    1. Alvent/Luluk OUT
    2. Vita/Lilyana has been demoted to 3rd/back-up pair.:eek:

    The second one is even more surprising...what is PBSI thinking?? Regeneration, perhaps?

    Oh dear...not looking good for Luluk :mad:

    BTW, can the original poster give us the source for this news? I don't think AG/Joko will get the nod over Luluk/Alvent....

    Wow, LuVent out? And if I'm not mistaken, they're the only INA pair ever beat Koo KK/Tan BH.

    They must be very upset now...

    any idea why LuVent is out?
    and I don't understand why Lily/Vita, the highest rank Indonesian pair become 3rd double?

    They cannot become WD3 because their ranking is so much higher than the other 2 pairs. If they are to be played, then they will definitely WD1, otherwise, they will not be played at all (ie: benched).

    Definitely not....I can't imagine Vita/Butet not being played as WD1 against Japan and Netherlands.

    Duh... Now, how's our chance against CHN, MAS, and KOR?
    Are they planning to field uncles against Koo/Tan?

    Koo/Tan should rise above Choong/Lee once the points for Singapore Open 2007 are deducted.

    I'm pretty sure we can still grab 2 pts from MS against MAS and KOR, but if what badmania said is true, I can see losing both MD points to MAS (40-60) and possibly a 50-50 chances against KOR. :(

    Against China....Joko/AG has been more in the losing end in their encounters against XZB/GZ, but I think they're pretty even in terms of skills... Regardless, either them or Candra/Nova, I'll rated the 2nd MD chances as 45-55.

    The best thing that could happen is if reports about KOR not sending their top MS to TC really comes true. Then MAS should win the group and send KOR our way in QF, where INA should be able to take all 3 singles or at least 2 MS and 1MD.

    Both seem wrong decisions to me.

    I'm checking the reasons right now... I'm still wondering whether this is some sort of wrong information. Some other countries would be happy to have the #7 / #8 ranked MD pair in the whole planet as their MD2, but apparently, not INA... :confused: I thought Kido-Hendra [#1 MD], Luluk-Alvent [#7 MD], and Candra-Nova [#6 MD + #1 XD] are probably the most feared lineup INA can offer... but maybe PBSI thought otherwise... :confused: I can accept that Luvent can't play if they're injured, but if not... very wierd...

    No no, as badMania has written, Lily-Vita are the highest ranked WD#1 from INA, they're ranked #9 in the world as of last week. Unless PBSI split them up, they cannot play after Greysia-Jo and Rani-Endang. ;)

    IMHO, I personally think that Candra/Nova is a better choice.

    What a Decision!!!not fair for lukvent, even they still deserve to be 3rd MD than be exclued from the team. Is it possible to place CANO at 2nd MD?
