Indonesia itself is bringing 10 male players to SEA Games 2021. They are Chico Aura Dwi Wardoyo, Christian Adinata, Yonathan Ramlie, Bobby Setiabudi, Pramudya Kusumawardana, Yeremia Erich Yoche Yacob Rambitan, Leo Rolly Carnando, Daniel Marthin, Rinov Rivaldy and Adnan Maulana.
Looking at the depth of the squad, it looks like the Indonesian men’s team will easily beat Cambodia. Because there are no world-class players belonging to the opponent.
Then on the other side of the graph is Laos playing against Singapore. The winner of the match will then meet the winner of the match between Vietnam and Malaysia in the semi-finals.
Unlike the men’s team, the Indonesian women’s team received a draw for a more profitable game. With a knockout system and there were only six entrants, they earned a bye or went straight to the semi-finals.
This way, Apriyani Rahayu et al only needed two wins to claim the gold medal. However, they must first beat either Vietnam or Malaysia in the semi-finals, who faced each other in the first game.
For the women’s team sector, Indonesia also contributed 10 names. They are Gregoria Mariska Tunjung Putri Kusuma Wardani, Stephanie Widjaja, Saifi Rizka Nurhidayah, Apriyani Rahayu, Siti Fadia Silva Ramadhanti, Ribka Sugiarto, Febby Valencia Dwijayanti Gani, Pitha Haningtyas Mentari and Mychelle Chrystine Bandaso.
On the next chart, Thailand also profits by getting a bye. The land of the white elephant awaits the winner of the match between Singapore and the Philippines in the semi-finals.
For the Indonesian men’s team, the goal is to win gold in PBSI . Meanwhile, the women’s team should qualify for the finals and should meet Thailand, who have a fairly competent roster of players.
The team badminton category is scheduled for May 16-18, 2022. The individual category match will then follow from May 19-22, 2022.
