Singapore and Malaysia are set to face each other in a three-match T20I series in Singapore. The first match of the series starts on June 28th at the Indian Association Ground, Singapore.
Let’s look at the details of this upcoming game.
1st T20I: Singapore vs Malaysia
The 20th-placed Singapore are playing against the 31st-placed Malaysia in the curtain-raiser of the Singapore vs Malaysia T20I series. The Singapore team have not played an international game since 4th Match 2020 when they played a T20 match against Hong Kong at Terdthai Cricket Ground in Bangkok. Under the captaincy of Amjad Mahboob, the Singapore team was able to beat the Hong Kong team by 16 runs. Batter Tim David (58) and Manpreet Singh (42) were the top scorers in that game.
Malaysia on the other hand have been playing international cricket quite frequently in the last couple of year. Their last game was against Nepal in the Nepal T20I Tri-series 2022. In that game, however, the Malaysia team lost by a margin of 85 runs against the Nepal side. Virandeep Singh with 47 and captain Ahmad Faiz with 33 were the top scorers.
The upcoming game between Singapore vs Malaysia looks like a well-balanced prospect in which any team could win based on their match-day performance.
