The actual lane patterns at the SF Strike Bowl in Bangkok continued to be a secret but (Malaysian) national chief coach Holloway Cheah was not upset at all. The team spent some time practicing at the venue yesterday ahead of the competition, which begins on Saturday. "We expected this. The hosts will not reveal the patterns early. In fact, I think, we made the wise decision on not coming here a week earlier. We would have wasted our time," said Holloway.
