Cricket or cockroach?

At first I thought this was a small cockroach but recently I read some articles and saw illustration of crickets that make me want to assume it is one. Yet it makes no sound that a cricket usually makes. What is it actually? (This was taken near Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia where I live)

This is indeed a cricket. They don't make sounds all the time.
