PETALING JAYA: Malaysia made short work of the United States with a 3-0 win in the men’s sepaktakraw opening Group B match of the ISTAF SuperSeries at the Indira Gandhi Sports Complex in New Delhi Thursday.
The regu of Norshahruddin Mad Ghani, Ahmad Aizat Nor Azmi and Farhan Adam defeated the US trio of Jeremy Nathan, Tanakorn Tony and Tru A Cha 15-9, 15-9, 15-4.
The Malaysians will wrap up their group fixture against Iran Friday and are expected to meet either India or Singapore in the semi-finals.
Meanwhile, Myanmar pulled out from the men’s competition, which means that Group A now comprises Japan and defending champions Thailand.
The second leg will be held in Bangkok (Sept 26-29) and third leg in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, from Oct 31-Nov 3.
