Malaysian fullback Kevin Lim pulls out of World Cup with hamstring injury

Malaysian men’s hockey team suffered a setback as defender Kevin Lim was ruled out of the World Cup with a hamstring injury.

The fullback who made his senior international debut in the 2014 Kuantan Champions Challenge I, sustained the injury during a practice match against the Netherlands, which they lost 2-8. Lim will be replaced by Mohamed Izad Hakimi.

The 13th ranked Malaysians face reigning champions and world number one Australia in their World Cup opener on Saturday.
