Like Ong, Shaheen is coming off two big recent international victories, the Indonesian Open and the Thailand Open. Shaheen also owns one of the 19 perfect games rolled in the 40-year history of the AMF World Cup. His perfect game came in 1997, in Cairo, Egypt.
At press time, 96 nations had confirmed participation in the 2004 AMF World Cup and named their representatives, including newcomers Afghanistan, Libya, Nigeria, Slovakia and Tajikistan. That puts the 2004 edition on track to set a new mark for number of countries represented in any given year. The current record was set in 2000 in Lisbon, Portugal, when 88 countries sent bowlers.
