Singapore will take on Denmark in the 5th match of the first-ever Men’s CWC Challenge of League A at the Selangor Turf Club. The two teams didn’t make a great start to the tournament as both lost their respective first matches.

On the other hand, the Demark let the hosts Malaysia to make a comeback. The home team recovered from 37/4 to finish on 192/7. Later with the ball, they took the last nine wickets for 83 runs to seal a 44-run win.
Scattered thunderstorms are expected on Thursday in Kuala Lumpur. There are good chances of rain during the match timings, especially in the afternoon. The teams can be hopeful of getting a result as at least 25 overs of 2nd innings could happen considering by the weather report.
The game between Canada and Vanuatu was the first List A matches hosted by this venue. The match was a low scoring one but can be said it was due to the quality of Canada bowlers. Both the teams lost quite a few wickets in the first hour which could mean early movement for the pacers.
