Malaysia Claim First Win In WSF Men's World Team Championship

KUALA LUMPUR, June 10 (Bernama) -- Malaysia claimed their first win in Pool E match of the World Squash Federation (WSF) Men's World Team Championship held in Mulhouse, France, Sunday.

The Malaysian players defeated Botswana 2-1 in their first match.

Malaysia claimed the first point through Mohd Nafiizwan Adnan who defeated Lekgotla Mosope in straight set of 11-6, 11-4 and 11-5.

Botswana leveled the score when their first seed player Alister Walker beat Ong Beng Hee in straight set of 11-3, 11-8 and 11-9.

The winning point for Malaysia came through Muhd Asyraf Azan when he beat Koketo Ntshebe, 11-3, 11-4 and 11-6.

"The first match is always the toughest. Alister was playing very well, and it was hot and bouncy. It's very hard for everybody, the PSA season is over, and to try and stay switched on just for the team even is not an easy task, more mentally than everything else.

"New Zealand, is a big encounter Monday," said Beng Hee as quoted in the tournament blog.

Malaysia will meet New Zealand their Pool E second round robin match before playing against Poland on June 11.
