In what will be an unprecedented move, this blog calls upon the Malaysian Hockey Confederation to retire, albeit for the Asia Cup, the number 3 national jersey worn by Chua Boon Huat who died in a tragic accident on August 1.

Not only will the move honour Chua, who was the most capped player for Malaysia, but will also lessen the burden on the shoulder of any other player designated to wear that number during the Asia Cup that will be held in Ipoh from August 24 till September 1.

Chua had a great innings in terms of representing the nation and was proud of wearing the national jersey.

Infact the gesture by many to wear a t-shirt with the words "we love Chua Boon Huat" and the number 3 at the back during his funeral shows that it is something accustomed to the late Chua. 

And this blog hopes that the same T-Shirt will be worn by the Malaysian players when they walk onto the pitch for warm up before every match.
