Miguel Angel Jimenez has selected Pablo Larrazabal and Thorbjorn Olesen as his two captain’s picks to complete the European team for next month’s EurAsia Cup.

The Spaniard and the Dane will join the eight automatic qualifiers as Europe face up to an Asian team led by Thailand’s Thongchai Jaidee at the Glenmarie Golf and Country Club in Kuala Lumpur from March 27-29.

Larrazabal and Olesen join Thomas Bjorn, Jamie Donaldson, Victor Dubuisson, Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano, Stephen Gallacher, Joost Luiten, Graeme McDowell and playing captain Jimenez to form a formidable European team.

“My team is complete, I am very happy,” Jimenez said. “I have a very strong group of players and good mix of youth and experience. If my players play to their abilities, Europe can triumph.”
