Despite the initial tie 5-5 in the second set, Thailand left Uzbekistan behind 14-8 and won the set with the same margin 25-15.
Thailand managed to put Uzbekistan in trouble in the third set as they raced to a commanding 14-1 lead as Uzbekistan failed to turn the tide. Thailand sealed the victory 25-17.
“I am not satisfied with my performance and I will do my best to get better and improve myself match by match”, Thailand’s top scorer Kanchana Sisaikaeo said
Thailand will play Australia in their second Pool A game on Tuesday, while Uzbekistan will challenge Korea in the pool preliminaries.
