Cambodia stun Malaysia, snatch gold in men’s 50-overs

It was a bitter pill to swallow for the national men’s cricket squad as they failed in their bid to defend the 50-overs gold medal in the 2023 SEA Games after going down to Cambodia, by 89 runs in the final here today.

Powered by several imported players from India and Pakistan, the hosts, who won the toss and opted for batting, hit 334 runs in 50-overs in the first innings, which saw Ram Raushan Sharan hit a century with 111 runs at the AZ Group Cricket Oval.

In the second innings, Malaysia’s team captain Faiz Noor scored beyond half a century with 78 runs, but that was not enough to help the national team chase Cambodia as they ended the match, which lasted almost seven hours, with 245 runs in 40.1 overs.
