Jimmy talks about the role of Team captain here.
Earlier he questioned the line up for our representation in Olympiad. Read here. Let me add my two cents worth here.
I think our selection criteria should also make it a condition that only current active players in Fide rated tournaments should be part of selection process.
Furthermore the players representing the Country should also commit to playing certain National Tournaments in Malaysia. Many dedicated players do not have the opportunity for this exposure. So at the very least give them a chance to play our Malaysian contingent when they come back. Give those left behind a chance to learn something too. Then we are optimising our opportunities and making the investment count.
