This match got off to the worst possible start for Malaysia as captain Shafiq Sharif was hit by a bouncer from the last ball of the first over and had to retire hurt. He was later diagnosed with a hairline fracture of his right collar bone.

Things didn't get much better for the home team as only two batsmen reached double figures as Malaysia struggled to 69/8 from their 50 overs. The economy rates of the Indian bowlers were remarkable, in particular that of Ravi Jadeja, who went for just five runs from his ten overs, taking two wickets in the process.

The target was an easy one for the Indian team, and they reached it in just ten overs, losing just one wicket.

Malaysia were thrown in at the deep end in the two tri-series that have taken place, and it appears that they have not learned to swim. A big improvement is needed if they are to avoid embarrassment when they host the Under-19 World Cup next year.
