24th August, Kuala Lumpur: Indonesia fought brilliantly from fourth in the first block to win the Men's Team silver medal at the 29th SEA Games Tenpin Bowling Championships as Singapore took the gold while Malaysia bagged their fifth gold in the Women's Team.

Indonesia stumbled to a poor 964 after the break but remain in fourth as Singapore stretched their lead from 75 pins to 183 pins over Malaysia in second and Thailand slipping down to third. With Hengki Susanto replacing Ramadona, Indonesia posted a strong 1040 to narrow the gap to Thailand, who was third, to just 17 pins.

Whilst Singapore's Muhd Jaris Goh, Basil Dill Ng, Darren Ong, Cheah Ray Han and Keith Saw remained in the lead after the fifth game with a 177 pins margin, the battle for the silver and bronze medals came down to Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia.

Singapore was able to ease off with 948 to seal victory with 6399 ending a 22-year wait for the Team gold since they last won it at the Chengmai SEA Games in 1995. Ryan Lalisang ended with 232, Hengki Susanto 221, Diwan Rezaldy 217, Billy Muhammad Islam 209 and it needed anchorman, Hardy Rachmadian to strike home in his final frame to snatch the silver medal for Indonesia with 1086 on a total of 6280.
