Sri Lanka Champions of Asian Netball beating hosts Singapore

Sri Lanka have won M1 Asian Netball Championships beating hosts Singapore 69-50. They remained the only undefeated team in the M1 Asian Netball Championships following their 62-59 win over Malaysia.

With two spots available at the flagship event in English city Liverpool, both last four winners knew they would be assured of a berth.

The Sri Lankans kept up their fine form at the OCBC Arena, seeing off the challenge of Hong Kong.

They won 55-46 to maintain their 100 per cent record at the tournament, which has been played using a double group format.

Hosts Singapore proved too strong for Malaysia in their semi-final, winning 51-43.

The Asian qualifiers follow Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago who booked their place in Liverpool through the Americas tournament last week.
