Malaysia's openers got the team off to a steady start, sharing an opening stand of 41.
A strong performance from Malaysia’s bowlers handed Uganda its first loss at the Pepsi ICC World Cricket League Division 3, while the other two games – Bermuda vs Singapore and Nepal vs USA – on Monday (October 27) only had one innings played and were pushed to the reserve day.
 
At Bayumas Oval, opting to bat, Uganda struggled to gain any momentum and was bowled out for a meagre 106 in 39 overs. In reply, despite Davis Arinaitwe’s five-wicket haul, Malaysia cruised to a comfortable four-wicket victory, finishing at 107 for 6 in 21 overs.
 
Uganda’s batsmen struggled from the onset as wickets fell at regular intervals. Only four of its batsmen got into double digits with Phillimon Selowa top scoring with 24.
 
The most effective bowler for Malaysia was Derek Duraisingam, the medium pacer, who returned figured of 3 for 23.
 
Malaysia's openers got the team off to a steady start, sharing an opening stand of 41. After ten overs, the team was comfortably placed at 61 for 1 before a flurry of wickets saw it slip to 89 for 6.
 
Arinaitwe, the off-spinner, returned figures of 5 for 32, but with the target a modest one, Malaysia completed the chase easily enough in the end.

At Selangor Turf Club, opting to bat, Arjun Mutreja and Anish Paraam took Singapore to 266 for 8 in 50 overs against Bermuda despite Dion Stovell picking up four wickets.
 
Mutreja scored his first century of the tournament to anchor the innings, while Paraam supported him in a phenomenal 209-run stand for the third wicket. The two were later dismissed in the span of two balls and Singapore ended its innings losing six wickets in three overs.
 
The Bermuda reply couldn’t take off as rain came down.

Elsewhere, at Kinrara Academy Oval, in another rain-interrupted game, the United States of America was bowled out for 204 in 47.3 overs after opting to bat against Nepal. Captain Steve Massiah scored a 60-ball 74, while opener Fahad Babar pitched in with a handy 47.
 
Sompal Kami picked up three wickets, while Basant Regmi, Shakti Gauchan and Sagar Pun picked up two apiece.
 
Facing a revised target of 162 from 30 overs due to the rain interruption, Nepal’s start was dented from the start. It lost three wickets in three overs to be reduced to 27 for 3 after seven overs, before rain came and the match had to end.
