Malaysia have secure their place in the quarter finals of the men's cricket tournament at the Asian Games after a thumping win over Thailand today in Hangzhou, China.

Malaysia captain Ahmad Faiz won the toss and chose to bat first, starting with Syed Aziz and Zubaidi Zulkifle putting on 81 in seven overs before the latter was out for 31. Faiz and Muhammad Amir then put on a second wicket partnership of 140 before Aziz was out having made 126, the highest score for Malaysia in men's T20Is.

Amir went on to score 55 himself as Malaysia reached 268-4 from their 20 overs, the fourth highest score in men's T20I history.

Thailand batted out their overs in reply but didn't even get close, being restricted to 74-9, losing by 194 runs.

The draw for the quarter finals saw Malaysia get drawn against Bangladesh, with that match being the last quarter final on Wednesday afternoon. Tomorrow's quarter finals will see Nepal take on India and Hong Kong face off against Pakistan. Sri Lanka play Afghanistan in the other quarter final.
