Final roster of Turkish NT for WCh:
Setters: Çağla Akın,Cansu Özbay
OHs: Hande Baladın,Derya Cebecioğlu (2000),Şeyma Ercan,Meliha İsmailoğlu
Opps: Meryem Boz,Ebrar Karakurt (2000)
Liberos: Gizem Örge Güner,Simge Aköz,Aylin Sarıoğlu
MBs: Eda Erdem Dündar(K),Beyza Arıcı,Zehra Güneş
The only surprise is Derya Cebecioğlu in instead of Saliha Şahin or Tuğba Şenoğlu who have played in NT B and were with the A team for whole summer and out of blue Derya is invited after her not so good performance in Junior ECh. It is good to invest youngsters but I am not sure WCh is the right tournament. Another issue is inviting only 3 MBs just to be able to bring Aylin Sarıoğlu as a receiving specialist. I just hope no injuries and Aylin could step up her game during this tournament. Our MB position seems to be our most reliable position. Also Simge as libero puts a high class performance so far. Neither Meryem and Ebrar is consistent to play several games in a high level. That's why we will see many double substitutions during the tournament. In this case Cağla's performance will be crucial. 3 OHs are on a similar level and any combination seems to be possible depending on the opponent.
