Looking to get their first win in the Malaysia Quadrangular T20I Series, Thailand clashed with Maldives in Match 10.
Let’s look at the match report for the same.
Match 10: Maldives vs Thailand
Thailand won the toss and elected to bowl first, showing great belief in their chasing abilities. Coming on to bat first, the Maldives side got off to a decent start with captain Yoosuf Azyan Farhath making 24 off of 40 and the other opener Umar Adam playing a knock of 14 off of 15. Wickets however continued to fall at regular intervals. Ahmed Hassan, Hassan Rasheed and Ameel Mauroof came up with significant individual knocks of 18, 14 and 13 respectively to bring the Maldives score to 97/10 in 19.3 overs.
Kamron Senamontree from Thailand was the best bowler with a bowling figure of 4-19-4. Vichanath Singh and captain Chanchai Pengkumtra took two wickets each and supported Kamron well in bowling.
Thailand would have hoped for a win given the small target but could not start their batting innings well. They lost their first wicket at just four runs. Thailand openers Narawit Nuntarch (7) and Jeerasak Pakhiaokajee (2) put the team under pressure from the start and the chasing team succumbed under pressure. Chaloemwong Chatphaisan with 15 off of 17 and Vichanath Singh with 10 off of 17 were Thailand’s best batters. In the end, Thailand could only amass 56 runs before getting all out in just 16.5 overs.
