India's Harinder Pal Sandhu continued his immaculate run of form in the PSA circuit as the former national champion defeated Mohd Syafiq Kamal of Malaysia in the final of the Malaysian Tour event. This title in Kuala Lumpur is his fifth consecutive title and his 10th overall.

The top seeded Indian who had a relatively easy move upto the final was given a tough fight by the second seeded Malaysian before Harinder prevailed 11-8, 10-12, 11-3, 9-11, 11-6. This is the seventh time that the two had met and Harinder has emerged the winner each time. “A fabulous win for Harinder and we are proud of him,” said the national coach Cyrus Poncha. Harinder is a trainee at the Indian Squash Academy in Chennai.

This is Harinder's 22nd match win in a row in the circuit starting with the Malaysian Tour again, in May. He followed that success with wins in Makati Open in Philippines, South Australian Open and Victorian Open (both Australia), the last one in July.

Earlier, he claimed his ninth PSA title by winning the Victoria Open in Melbourne.
