New Straits Times - - Sport - Ajitpal Singh

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.
