The withdrawal of men’s singles shuttler Kodai Naraoka from the Asia Team Championships has not dampened the Japanese men’s team’s spirits.

World No. 6 Naraoka was initially set to spearhead the team in the team meet which is set to get underway on Monday (Feb 12) at the Setia City Convention Centre in Shah Alam but had to pull out at the eleventh hour due to fitness concerns.
