This match has not yet started. belum= not yet

I know that an exact translation is not always possible but if the meaning is "started" then shouldn't it be dimulai and not mulai?

If you use "dimulai", the English translation would be "The match has not BEEN started yet (by someone)". The prefix "Di-" is used for passive sentences.
