Muaz, Safiyah, Natasha advance in Doha
AHMAD Muaz Fishol, along with Siti Safiyah Amirah Abdul Rahman and Natasha Roslan, advanced to Stage Two of the H. H Emir Cup in Doha yesterday.
In the Stage One match-play event, Muaz, 24, took third position in the eightfield Group W by earning four wins for 12 points while Siti Safiyah finished fourth with nine points.
Syaidatul Afifah Badrul Hamidi failed to make Stage Two by finishing seventh on six points.
In Group X, world junior champion Natasha was the most impressive Malaysian when she took second spot with 15 points but compatriot Zulmazran Zulkifli failed to make the cut by finishing sixth on six points.
Adrian Ang was unlucky in Group Y when he was ousted after the one-ball roll off match with four other bowlers.
Qualification to Stage Two is based on the total wins and not pinfalls of each bowler.
“We could have had more bowlers in Stage Two had Adrian won the one-ball roll off. It is a very tough competition…we are happy to have three bowlers in the next stage,” said George from Doha yesterday.
The Stage Two event was completed late yesterday.
