Malaysia make easy work of Bahrain

ESPNcricinfo staff

Hosts Malaysia posted 267 after choosing to bat against Bahrain in their match at Kinrara Academy Oval, thanks to sixties from middle-order batsmen M Krishnamurthi and Eszrafiq Azis. The other major contributor was No. 3 Suhan Alagaratnam, who made a patient 46. Bahrain looked on target for a win as opener Imran Sajjad cracked five sixes and seven fours in a 53-ball 73 but were derailed by legspinner Dinesh Sockalingham's four wickets. Azis followed up his whirlwind batting effort with a tight spell of 10-0-28-1 as Malaysia completed a 33-run victory.
