PETALING JAYA: Independent shuttler Liew Daren will try to hold the fort for Malaysia in the absence of Lee Chong Wei but said the spotlight should be on the youngsters, not him.

The 31-year-old is the second-highest ranked Malaysian in the world rankings behind No. 4 Chong Wei, who is out of action indefinitely after being diagnosed with early-stage nose cancer. Daren is lying at the 30th spot.
