    Sad we lost the final, but this is great stuff and the team deserves a felicitation ceremony and lots of publicity so other may be encouraged to take up the game...

    Hard-luck. Great effort though. But still painfully close loss.

    Good job girls. Too much attention to cricket. So this is a welcome change!

    Netball in Asia is equivalent to Beach Volley Ball in the West and the Far East. Its men who patronize both these women's games
    That is a fact.

    It was a great game. After all the big wins which our team came out with, the Singaporeans adjusted and changed their game.

    We should have finished better.
    The consolation is that Singapore stands ahead of us in the world netball table.
    Well played ladies. Let's get the trophy the next time.

    Lost due to Politics?

    So close, yet so far. You were great, girls. Well done.

    Singapore won because of our mistakes.Our girls made many handling mistakes.At the dying stages of the game, the ball went to Tharji's hands but she couldn't get control of as asnigapore player tried to get it and she went out of the line.That was the last chance we had, if she succeeded in turning it toa point we would definetely be the winners .Singapore can't match with us.Its pure bad luck. Wish all the best for our team to get it back next time
