"I was coming into the last half of the year with this being a big goal of mine to make the team, and so I'm delighted that I'm here and hopefully we can have a good week", Dunne said yesterday. "Especially on a year where the Ryder Cup feels so special".

Asia captain Atwal revealed he had a chance to ask Tiger Woods for advice on leading his team.

Captain Thomas Bjorn will look to lead Europe to a victory over hosts Asia in this week's EurAsia Cup with the event also serving as a dress rehearsal for one of the teams contesting the 2018 Ryder Cup.

Kuala Lumpur: Arjun Atwal turned to his close friend Tiger Woods for a word of advice soon after being appointed captain of Team Asia for the third edition of the EurAsia Cup.

Other pairings being sent out by Bjorn in his first taste of captaincy include 2016 Open champion Stenson joining forces with Frenchman Alex Levy.

The European team meanwhile has the top 10 eligible player from the European Tour Race to Dubai and two captain's picks. "So I have an idea of what to deal with and what to expect", said Atwal.

Seasoned Ryder Cup golfer Paul Casey of England and France's Alex Levy completes Team Europe as the two wildcards picked by Bjorn. When I took this role, I was amazed how willing so numerous players were to appear here.

"When I spend time with them here, it's a bit of a different environment, and I have their ear a little bit better this week than I do week in, week out because I am their captain this week and I'm guiding the whole group to where we want to go".

The Danish skipper will be hoping to win back the famous trophy at Le Golf National in Paris after a humbling defeat at Hazeltine two years ago.

"It's great to be involved here and I think if anyone said they weren't thinking about the Ryder Cup, even a little bit, then they would be lying", he wrote.

"I'm excited to play and happy with everybody on the team".

"If that's the way Paul (McGinley) and Darren (Clarke) approached their captaincy, it's probably the reason I am approaching mine in the same way, and the reason that whoever is the next captain has to take the same approach".

The match-play event will start tomorrow with the four-ball competition before the foursomes takes place the following day (January 13).

Atwal will have big Thailand's big hitter Kiradech Aphibarnrat and India's Anirban Lahiri among his 12-man team that includes Thai pair Phachara Khongwatmai and Poom Saksansin, China's Li Haotong and Japanese duo Yuta Ikeda and Hideto Tanihara.
