Malaysia bowlers hand Uganda first loss

A round-up of the World Cricket League Division Three matches played on October 27, 2014

A solid team performance from Malaysia's bowlers helped restrict Uganda to 106, a total small enough for their batsmen to chase down despite a few late hiccups. The loss, by four wickets, was Uganda's first of the tournament.
Uganda chose to bat, but the innings never got going at all. Wickets kept falling at regular, short intervals, and only four batsmen got into double digits. The top score - 24 - came from Phillimon Selowa, as the Malaysia bowlers shared the wickets around. The most effective of them was medium pacer Derek Duraisingam, with 3 for 23. Uganda were bowled out in 39 overs.
Malaysia's chase began relatively stably, with the openers adding 41 and the team getting to 61 for 1 by the tenth over. But then a slide began, with the team falling to 89 for 6. A big chunk of the damage was done by offspinner Davis Arinaitwe, who picked up 5 for 32. Still, they got home with plenty of time to spare - the chase was complete in 21 overs.
The other two games played today, Bermuda v Singapore and Nepal v USA, were washed out after the first innings'. Both games will be replayed tomorrow, the reserve day.
