Meanwhile, defending champions India, led by star paddler Manika Batra, crashed out of the women’s table tennis team event after losing 3-2 to Malaysia in the quarter-finals on Saturday. Batra won one singles match and lost the other as the Indian team made a pre-mature exit.


India were on the backfoot after the pair of Reeth Tennison and Sreeja Akula lost the opening doubles match 1-3 (7-11, 6-11, 11-5, 6-11) before Batra levelled the tie with a 3-2 (11-8, 11-5, 8-11, 9-11, 11-3) win over Ying Ho in the singles. Akula later thrashed Li Sian Alice Chang 3-0 (11-6, 11-6, 11-9). But Batra failed to seal the tie for India as she lost to Karen Lyne 3-0 (6-11, 3-11, 9-11). Malaysia took advantage of the momentum as Ying Ho beat Tennison 3-2 (10-12, 11-8, 6-11, 11-9, 11-9 ).
