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. "We are taking this very seriously, so the score you see on the leader board right now is not through complacency ... they have played some unbelievable golf to be in this position".

The English duo were the only European pair to be leading to begin with after going one point ahead in match one.

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. The Asians did fight to get even at 10th, but after that the European simply flew past them as Fleetwood added an eagle on 11th after Casey had done likewise on third.

Arjun Atwal said, "These youngster were just too good. Clearly, they have played some incredible golf to be in this position".

"Putting wins matches. If you make putts, you're going to win matches".

"No one was four or five down after six holes".

Alex Noren and Paul Dunne lost to Hideto Tanihara and Khongwatmai by two holes before Li and Nicholas Fung halved their match with Cabrera Bello and Wiesberger to hand Asia a one-point lead at the end of the opening day.

Arjun, an eight-time victor on the Asian Tour, also said Thailand's Poom Saksansin and South Korean Kang Sunghoon in match four against Team Europe helped give Team Asia a much-needed early boost.

The best golf indeed came from Sunghoon Kang and Poom Saksansin, who started with eight straight birdies on their way to a 5&4 win over Henrik Stenson and Alexander Levy, with Yuta Ikeda and Gavin Green beating Thomas Pieters and Matt Fitzpatrick 2&1. Kiradech Aphinbarnrat and Byeong-Hun An, without playing poorly, were outplayed.
