Wang Liqin will replace Zhang Jike in the Chinese men’s team for the Liebherr World Team Cup, which starts in the German city of Magdeburg on Thursday 3rd November 2011.

He will line up alongside Ma Long, Wang Hao, Ma Lin and Xu Xin.

An injury, incurred when competing at the recent Swedish Open in Stockholm, has forced the withdrawal of Zhang Jike on doctor’s advice; a waist injury is cited as the reason for the withdrawal of Zhang Jike.
