Thailand Women will be taking on Malaysia Women in the 16th match of the 2022 Women’s Asia Cup T20 on Sunday, October 9. The Sylhet International Cricket Stadium in Sylhet, Bangladesh, will host this clash.
Thailand didn’t have the best of starts to the competition. They lost their first two games but bounced back to beat Pakistan in their third encounter. They carried forward the winning momentum to come out on top against UAE in their next game.
After being asked to bat first against the UAE, Thailand skipper Naruemol Chaiwai stepped up and remained unbeaten on 39 to help her side post 108. The bowlers then bowled brilliantly and restricted the UAE to 89 to win the game by 19 runs. They will be high on confidence after that win and will look to keep performing in a similar fashion while facing Malaysia on Sunday.
Malaysia, meanwhile, are struggling in this year’s competition. They have played five games so far and lost all of them. They suffered a heavy loss against Sri Lanka in their previous fixture.
Sri Lanka set a target of 106 for Malaysia to chase. Malaysia picked up seven wickets in total, with Sasha Azmi and Ainna Hamizah Hashim finishing with two apiece.
The batters, in reply, faltered as only Elsa Hunter (18) got to double digits as they were bundled out on 33 to lose the game by 72 runs. They have already been knocked out of the competition and will hope to finish on a high.
