News: Malaysia edge out Singapore…

Personally, I am surprised at this news, because Malaysia is supposed to be much stronger than Singapore. The match was a 3 day match as part of the ACC premier league (former FTCT Cup). Competing teams are UAE, Nepal, Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia. The brief score is as follows:

Singapore 1st Innings 233 all out in 82 overs ( Chaminda Ruwan 118, Narendar Reddy – 28, Glenn Meyars 21, Suresh Navaratnam 3/54, Anuar Arudin 3/51, Rohan Vishnu Suppiah 2/22)
Malaysia 1st Innings 218 all out in 81.3 overs ( Dinesh Muthuraman 94, Rohan Selvaratnam 29, Suresh Navaratnam 18, M.Muniandy 17 not out, Anish Param 4/56, Balaji Narasimhan 4/31)
Singapore 2nd Innings 113 all out in 41.3 overs (Kevin Robertson 30, Chaminda Ruwan 22, Rohan Vishnu Suppiah 5/25, Eszrafiq Ab Aziz – 2/3)
Malaysia 129 for 6 (Rakesh Madhavan 54, M.Krishnamurthi 49 not out, Pramod Raja 2/14, Balaji Narasinman 2/22)
Result: Malaysia won by 4 wickets

Malaysia at one point were 52/5 chasing the 129 for victory in the last innings. They should not have made this game hang on the knife edge this much. Looks like Malaysia still has a way to go. Singapore is still an all expatriate based team, so perhaps a good performance like this should not be taken to assume that their cricket development is coming along well or anything of that nature.

    Let me tell you that UAE are miles above the rest at the senior level. Apart from them, there are about 9 or 10 teams that are relatively equal in quality in Asia.
