Idrakie Heads Malaysian Charge in Kuala Lumpur

#PSAWorldTour

Number three seed Addeen Idrakie led a trio of Malaysians into the last four of the Malaysian Squash Tour II, PSA M5 tournament after securing a straight games victory over Spain’s Bernat Jaume in the quarter-final.

Idrakie narrowly edged a hard-fought opening game before continuing his strong performance into the second to open up a 2-0 lead.

The 22-year-old dominated proceedings in the third for the loss of just three points, wrapping up an 11-9, 11-8, 11-3 win to reach the semi-final of a PSA World Tour event for the first time in 2016.

World No.121 Idrakie will meet compatriot Eain Yow Ng for a place in the final after he followed up his stunning victory over top seed Carlos Cornes Ribadas in round one with a similarly impressive 3-0 triumph over Valentino Bong.

Elsewhere, Elvinn Keo came through a brutal five-game battle with Mohd Syafiq Kamal to reach the semi-final, where he will line up against Jordan’s Ahmad Al-Saraj who prevented it from being an all-Malaysian semi-final line up after dispatching second seed Sanjay Singh Chal in four.
