"It was good to be assigned to the second squad when you know what scores are needed to win," said the 20-year-old Rafiq during the press interview. "The scores were very high and we have to put in a lot of effort and concentration.
"I set myself a target of a six-game total of 1450 and to surpass that gave me a very satisfying feeling. It's not over yet after three events. We now have to put in even more effort to keep up our standards and achieve our target set by our coach."
"This is the first time I'm partnering Rafiq and I felt very comfortable bowling with him," said the 25-year-old Sin. "We gave each other a lot of encouragement and when he was doing well, I was much more relaxed."
