Women win but no points

THE Malaysian women started their quest to reclaim the Asian Indoor crown in Bangkok, Thailand, with a 4-0 win against Thailand B yesterday.
However, the win does not carry any weight for defending champions Malaysia, as Thailand B were included as a sparring team when Iran pulled out at the 11th hour.
Malaysia meet Indonesia today, and a win is almost assured after Kazakhstan hammered Indonesia 18-0 yesterday.
A gold medal in Bangkok comes with a ticket to play in the World Indoor Tournament in Poland next year.
RESULTS: Malaysia 4 Thailand B 0, Kazakhstan 18 Indonesia 0, Uzbekistan x Thailand A x.
TODAY: Malaysia v Indonesia; Kazakhstan v Thailand A; Thailand B v Uzbekistan.
TOMORROW: Thailand B v Kazakhstan; Thailand A v Indonesia; Malaysia v Uzbekistan.
