200. Tan will face-off against Tsai Hsin Yi in tomorrow’s semifinals. The fourth semi-finalist is Park Jin Hee from Korea, the only hook bowler left in the women’s game, and she will face Wang Yu Ling tomorrow.
Where the Malaysian ladies failed to perform, the Malaysian men seemed to have taken well to the challenge. Three Malaysian men: Alex Liew, Azidi Ameran and Aaron Kong made it into the semifinals along with the last surviving local bowler, Yannaphon Laraphat. Alex Liew holds the highest scoring game for the men’s event with 226 and will be a favorite to win in tomorrow’s event.
The ABF Tour will comprise eight Legs and a Grand Final, the Tournament of Champions.
