In the decider, Izzat, who is the two-time Asia Pacific Bowls Championships bronze-medalist (fours & pairs), went down 2-3 after a close fight to settle for the silver.
According to the tournament’s official website, Izzat ousted defending champion Lee Schraner from Australia in the semi-finals yesterday, while Tolchard defeated Irish veteran Gary McCloy.
