Ph 021 421 830 Squash selection sparks row SPORTS TALK JOSEPH ROMANOS Centre of storm: Kashif Shuja stretches for a drop shot against Campbell Grayson. Shuja has been controversially dropped from the New Zealand squash team. Photo: FAIRFAX There's an almighty row going on in New Zealand squash circles following the naming of the national men's team for the world champion- ships in Germany next month. The team is Martin Knight, Campbell Grayson, Evan Wil- liams and Paul Coll. The glaring omission is Kashif Shuja, who finished third at the New Zealand championships last week. It's difficult to follow the selectors' logic. Shuja, who turns 32 this week, is one of the giants of New Zealand squash. He has won five national titles and been runner- up on another occasion, and has led New Zealand in three world championships. His highest world ranking is 36th and at present he is 74th. He's obviously still eager -- he paid his own way back to New Zealand just to qualify for the world championships team. On results he should be No 3 in the team. Paul Coll, formerly of Greymouth and then Christ- church, is the shock inclusion. Coll, the national junior cham- pion, lost in straight games in the quarterfinals of the New Zealand champs, has a world ranking of 251st and lost to Shuja in the Cousins Shield (the national club teams event) a few weeks ago. It appears the selectors have opted for youth over perform- ance -- always a dubious practice when choosing a team for a world championship. The decision will have repercussions for the New Zea- land team. Without Shuja, their seeding for the world champs will be lower, meaning they will get a tougher draw. They'll miss his big-match experience, too. Sparc, Squash New Zealand's major funder, would expect the best possible team to be sent to a senior world championship. That hasn't happened. It's not the first brouhaha in squash over selection of a world championship team. Squash followers with long memories will recall debates over Howard Broun v Robin Espie in 1979, John Mills v Anthony McMur- trie in 1983 and Danny McQueen v Rory Watt in 1991. Other sports have ventured down the youth over perform- ance route, not always with sat- isfactory results. In 2003 John Mitchell chose a very young squad for the Rugby World Cup. It soon became clear Mitchell's team lacked on-field nous, yet when he had the opportunity to bring in an extra back because of an injury to Ben Blair, Mitchell went for Auck- land 20-year-old Ben Atiga ahead of wily Andrew Mehrtens. Atiga was never going to be a factor at the World Cup. Mehrtens, having shrugged off early-season injuries and run into peak condition, might have been. The question is: when is old too old? Surely, only when a younger player is better. Irene van Dyk returned from the world netball champs in Singapore saying she wants to represent the Silver Ferns at the next such event, in Sydney in 2015. By then van Dyk will be 43.Van Dyk is not quite the player she was. She seems slightly more cautious and occasionally hesitant. But she is still the best goal shoot in New Zealand by a long margin. She should be dropped from the New Zealand team only when someone better comes along. The sports world is full of promising youngsters. They should interest the selectors of national teams only when they are better than the incumbents.
