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?

if luvent find they are treated unfairly for TC, i believe they will be retired from Pelatnas soon and go to other country

Several local medias in today's edition (24/4) report that Lutfi Hamid (INA Thomas team Manager) said there're some criterias as consideration to include player into team such as age, performance and head-to-head record against other contestants second men's doubles. Christian Hadinata as INA Thomas-Uber Head Coach also gave standard answer, he said the goal of team composition is Thomas Cup victory and this team is the best team.
Luluk Hadiyanto delivered comment to media that he was shocked and disappointed by coach and manager decision to exclude Alvent and him. He's questioning about unlogical reason why he can't join the team.
And for Uber team as predicted earlier, INA Uber team Manager, Susi Susanti announced the team members yesterday :
WS1,WS2,WS3 -- Maria Kristin, Adrianti Firdasari, Pia Zebadiah
WS4 (substitute) -- Fransiska Ratnasari
WD1 -- Vita Marissa/Lilyana Natsir
WD2 -- Jo Novita/Greysia Polii
WD3 -- Rani Mundiasti/Endang Nursugianti

For me...INA Thomas cup team without Luluk/Alvent is solid and strong enough to beat their oppenents :
1. INA has good a chance to take point from 2 MS and 1 MD if they meet the powerfull countries in QF/SF : Korea, Denmark, Malaysia.
2. In Final Match, INA will take point from 1 MS (Taufik vs Bao Cunlai) and 2 MD: Word Champion can handle Cai/Fu. Joko/Hendra won in their last meeting against Guo/Xie...and if they are Nova/Candra against the 2nd CHN MD...hhmm...60:40 for INA uncles).
I am INA supporter very happy with this INA skuad. Beside Luluk/Alvent with their unstable performances, we also need regeneration even though Joko/Hendra has lower ranking than that of their senior. I am sure this INA skuad has high probability for the victory in this Thomas Cup edition.

Can't say I agree or disagree with the decision, based on the ABC performance for Luluk/Alvent, they have gone down slightly compared to Korea SS.
Having said that, I can't say having Hendra AG/Joko Riyadi is good either, they have always underachieved.
Nova/Candra may be used quite significantly in this campaign .......

Another unfair decision
Not sure, how many time PBSI choosed Hendra/Joko rather than Luluk/Alvent
1st Sudirman Cup 2007, Joko was ill, Hendra wasn't played.
2nd SEA Games 2007, Hendra/Joko lost to Hendra/Hendri of Singapore
3rd TC 2008
The individual's performance also can't say that Hendra/Joko are better than Luluk/Alvent,
Hendra isn't called young player anymore (26 y.o.)
maybe PBSI considered, they ever beat Xie/Guo of China. They forgot that one match record isn't enough because of the tournament's schedule is very tight this time.

Well I think Hendra-Joko is fielded as 3rd doubles while 2nd doubles goes to Candra-Nova...well I hope for the best for our Indonesia..

Compare to Hendra-Joko I'd go with Bona-Ahsan or one of the pratama kids....

Very impressive, INA's selection standards ....... let's hope that the decision does not bite back at Sutiyoso and crumble INA's hopes.
