National shuttler Fairuzizuan suspended for one month

KUALA LUMPUR: National doubles shuttler Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari has to serve a one-month suspension for losing his cool during the Thomas Cup Finals in May.

Yesterday, the Badmintion Association of Malaysia (BAM)’s executive council meted out the punishment following a recommendation from the disciplinary board and Fairuzizuan will have to miss the next week’s Malaysian Open Grand Prix Gold event in Johor Baru.

The exco, however, was kind enough to backdate the suspension from June 15-July 15, taking into account that the latter had already missed the recent Singapore and Indonesian Opens.

Fairuzizuan had retaliated angrily after a fan had intimidated him with vulgar signs and profanities following his defeat with partner Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif to a Japan pair during a group tie in the Finals at Bukit Jalil.
