JOHANNESBURG – MALAYSIA ADD SILVER, BRONZE IN COMMONWEALTH BOWLING MEET

Malaysia’s golden run has come to an abrupt halt on the third day of the Commonwealth Tenpin Bowling Championships in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Instead, the Malaysian keglers ended up playing second and third fiddle to England in the mixed doubles event at the Northcliff Bowl on Wednesday.

England’s Elliot Crosby and Becky Day combined well to come out tops with 2,820 pinfalls in Squad B, pipping Muhd Nur Aiman Khairuddin-Siti Safiyah Amirah Abdul Rahman (2799) and Timmy Tan-Shalin Zulkifli (2759) to the gold.

Malaysia had opened the campaign with a bang, winning the men’s singles gold through Nur Aiman on Monday. Siti Safiyah and Shalin then combined to give Malaysia gold No. 2 in the women’s doubles on Tuesday.

In the mixed doubles, Nur Aiman-Siti Safiyah were the overnight leaders after topping Squad A late on Tuesday with a 2,799 total.

Timmy-Shalin, meanwhile, got off to a rousing start by seizing the opening-game lead. They went on to compile a 2,759 total.

“That’s bowling … you can only bowl your own game, but if your opponents perform better, there’s nothing you can do about it.

“At least this time we didn’t lose by as narrow a margin as three pins the day before.

The three-pin loss to South Africa was heartbreaking.

“It has been a great campaign so far for Malaysia. We’ll try harder in the remaining events.”

The championships continue Thursday with the mixed team event.
