Jakarta, Aug 28 (IANS) Malaysia defeated hosts Indonesia 2-1 to win the sepaktakraw Men's Regu gold medal match at the 2018 Asian Games at the Ranau Hall of the Jakabaring Sports City here on Tuesday.
The Malaysian Regu team of Zulkifli Razak, Farhan Adam and Azlan Alias lost the first set 21-18, but took the second 22-20, despite trailing 11-17 at one point, and the third 21-11, reports Efe news.
