Famous Sepak Takraw Players That Will Be Enforceable in the 2021 Asian Games
When South African rugby teams were asked to name their greatest ever player, they almost always chose a player who was a Famous Sepak Takraw. Of course it is not compulsory for a player to be born in South Africa to become a Famous Sepak Takraw, however, many more players have come from the country than just Takraw. Many Famous Sepak Takraw players became household names around the world. Some of these include Jean De Decker and Bok coach Jaco Peyper.
Bok coach Jaco Peyper became one of the most successful coaches in world class sports after taking over from mentor Brian Smith in 2021. He has made a lasting impression on the minds of all that have played or coached at the Bok level, making every single team better with a greater drive and intensity. He is very popular with all the Bok players apart from Patrick Patterson and Jean De Decker, who have both given him immense support since he took over the Bok team. This has been paid off with the best season in the history of the game for the Springboks. Now they are preparing for the World Cup and looking every bit the best. It will be a very tough competition, but they will be one of the favourites in this competition.
Bok coach Henry Cowling said that Takraw was a great contributor to the team’s performance in the recent Tests against the Wallabies and Irish sides. “He (Takraw) is a very experienced player and brings great passion and hunger to the job. There is nothing better than having a coach that is passionate about what he is doing. I am very happy that Jean and Patrick are both sticking with the Australian squad and I am certain that it will do them good. It is a good thing that they have the natural talent that comes with being a Bok”.
One of the other famous sepak takraw players that has also impressed the Australian coaching staff is Noaicor Morait. The 24-year-old opens up some of the gaps in the line-up that the Bok team needs to be really successful. The former hooker played just one match for the British Universities before going to South Africa where he impressed the selectors. He has since become one of the leading running backs in the Springboks as well as being a valuable member of the Bok team.
Another of the famous sepak takraw players that are now playing for Thailand is former world champion Seppo Takraw. Seppo was part of the World Cup winning team in 2021. At the time he was playing for Watkaba in Thailand. Since then he has gone on to play for both Bangkok Watkaba and then Saracens in France.
The last of the all time famous sepak takraw players that have moved to overseas is none other than Syahir Rosdi. The Sri Lankan was part of the British squad that won the recent series in Australia. He is now on his way back to Sri Lanka where he will hope to win another cricket world title. The 33-year-old player has always impressed the selectors with his skills and should be a real success in his new environment.
Another of the all time famous sepak takraw players that have moved to foreign lands is Harish Kumar. The wicket keeper from India has also moved to the country of England. Although India is not known for producing many high quality cricketers they have produced a few that have made their presence be felt in the world game. Kumar is one such cricketer and has gone on to make his name be known not only in England but also in Australia, New Zealand and the Caribbean.
