Miguel Angel Jimenez has named fellow Spaniard Pablo Larrazabal and Thorbjorn Olesen of Denmark as the two captain's picks for his Europe team at next month's EurAsia Cup.

The pair join automatic qualifiers Thomas Bjorn, Jamie Donaldson, WGC runner-up Victor Dubuisson, Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano, Stephen Gallacher, Joost Luiten and Graeme McDowell - as well as Jimenez himself - to face Thongchai Jaidee's Asia side in Kuala Lumpur. 

"I am delighted that both Pablo and Thorbjorn have accepted the chance to join the team," Jimenez said.

"They are both extremely talented players and they will definitely bring excitement and flair to the match.

"Both boys have made great starts to 2014."

Larazabal opened 2014 with a win at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, while Olesen finished third and fifth in Qatar and Dubai respectively.

The contest takes place at the Glenmarie Golf and Country Club from 27-29 March.
