Europe trail in EurAsia Cup

Haotong wows Team Asia captain

The pair of Kiradech Aphibarnrat and Byeonghun An lost their match to Tommy Fleetwood and Paul Casey 4&3 while Indian duo Anirban Lahiri and S.S.P. Chawrasia was beaten by Ross Fisher and Tyrrell Hatton 5&4.

The anchor match saw Bernd Wiesberger partner Englishman Ross Fisher, a victor on Friday, against Haotong Li and Nicholas Fung but despite moving 2up at the par five 6th green Asia responded quickly and Li continued his strong putting display from the opening day's play to secure a 3&1 win and maintain Asia's slender advantage heading into Sunday's singles.

Belgium's Thomas Pieters and England's Matthew Fitzpatrick thought they had struck another fatal blow to Team Asia's EurAsia Cup title aspirations when they won 3&2.

Asia staged a dramatic comeback against defending champions Europe to hang on to a one-point lead Saturday in the second day of the EurAsia Cup in Malaysia.

"It feels great. I love matchplay, especially when you have a partner like Tommy Fleetwood", said Casey, who was one of Bjorn's two wildcard selections.

"It was a really good morning, we played really solid", added Fleetwood.

"We believe we can go out in 12 singles and win the singles matches and win this tournament".

"I would say that this team is very capable of winning the Singles but we are getting a good fight this week, that's for sure".

"You saw how early on, everybody was kind of down and losing a few matches early".

Asia retain narrow EurAsia Cup lead

Team Europe's captain Thomas Bjorn knows of his tough task ahead of the final Singles matches and is determined to put up a stiff challenge against an inspired Team Asia.

"I absolutely believe we can win the EurAsia Cup".

"I'm slightly disappointed with the outcome today but I'm sure we can rise to what's ahead of us tomorrow".

But the momentum shifted Asia's way as the second day drew to a close, with victory in the three other matches.

Europe had looked on course to banish the memory of their 3½-2½ defeat in Friday's Fourball session when they put the first three points on the board on Saturday.

"Making the shot was one of the best feelings I've had in a while when I hit it on my line on the 17th", said Gavin, the first Malaysian to win the Asian Tour Order of Merit.

But Green and Ikeda claimed a thrilling win over Rafa Cabrera Bello and Alexander Levy, securing three of the final four holes.

China's Li Haotong and Malaysia's Nicholas Fung then completed another memorable day for Team Asia when they won another point by beating England's Paul Casey and Austria's Bernd Wiesberger 3&1.
