Indonesia always rise to the occasion
Datuk Punch Gunalan was the team manager when Malaysia last won the Thomas Cup in 1992. The 66-year-old Gunalan may have been off the scene for about two years now after leaving the Badminton World Federation (BWF) as their deputy president. But he is still a great follower of the sport. The prominent sports figure talks to Starsportís RAJES PAUL and says that it will be a grave mistake for anyone to underestimate 13-time champions Indonesia in a team competition.
I AM a strong believer that the Thomas Cup Finals somehow bring out the best in Indonesia.
They may not look very impressive on paper this time but one should never rule them out, especially in team competitions.
To me, Indonesia and Malaysia are the best two team players in the Finals. That is why it sparks fire when both teams clash. They are a very patriotic lot and so are their fans.
Datuk Punch Gunalan
In 1992, Indonesia had more fans in the Stadium Negara than us. And I will not be surprised to see them coming in droves at the Putra Stadium to support their national heroes.
This time, in order to win the Thomas Cup for a 14th time, Indonesia may have to get one point in the singles and rely heavily on their doubles pairs to deliver.
But I do not think the first point will come from Taufik Hidayat. The former Olympic and world champion has slowed down and does not look as impressive as before. He has done very well in individual tournaments but he has been beaten before in the team competitions.
But Indonesia can bank on either Sony Dwi Kuncoro (pic) or Simon Santoso. They are experienced enough to give their opponents a run for their money.
And one must remember that, Sony has done well on Malaysian soil and he will be their trump card.
Their reserve, Dionysius (Hayom Rumbaka), is a newcomer. I donít think Indonesia will be brave enough to rest Taufik and field Sony, Simon and Dionysius for the singles matches. But with Indonesia, one must be prepared for the unexpected in the doubles. They can come out with different combinations and still troop out as winners. They have done this in almost every Finals, even during my playing days. They will most likely tweak with a scratch combination for the second doubles.
Sony Dwi Kuncoro
They fielded mixed doubles player Nova Widianto and youngster Mohd Ahsan in the team final against Malaysia at the Laos SEA Games and it caught Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari-Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif by surprise.
The Malaysians lost and Indonesia went on to take the gold medal.
I think they will field their Olympic champions, Markis Kido-Hendra Setiawan, in the first doubles. And if this pair hit it off well, they are tough ones to beat.
And one thing unique about the Indonesian team this year is that they seem to have broken the cardinal rule by roping in several independent players Ė Taufik, Markis-Hendra and Alven Yulianto-Hendra Gunawan.
But whether national or independent, I have never seen division among Indonesian players when they come together for a team competition. They have amazing team spirit.
It has been eight years since Indonesia last won the Cup. And their recent performances in international tournaments have not been that impressive. But the Thomas Cup is always seen as a revival platform for the Indonesians.
They use this stage to get back their confidence and reaffirm their status as a badminton power. And I will not be surprised if they make it happen.

So sad INA lost to CHN, but they gave a good fight. Some already known weaknesses are again exposed, esp. stamina.
