Singapore edged India 3-1 in the other semi-finals match.
In the match against Australia on Saturday, Beh Lee Wei gave Malaysia the lead with a 12-10, 14-12, 11-8 win.
However, Australia levelled the score when Ziyu Zhang beat Ng Sock Khim 11-6, 11-6, 11-5.
Lee Wei-Ho Ying warded off a strong challenge from Ziyu Zhang-Zhenhua Dederko before prevailing 11-7, 8-11, 11-9, 5-11, 11-7 to give Malaysia a 2-1 lead.
Sock Khim cliniched the winning point for Malaysia by coming back from a set down to beat Zhenhua 2-11, 11-7, 11-8, 11-6.
Malaysia had earlier edged past England 3-2 in the quarter-finals.
This will be the team’s best ever showing in the Games’ history since the sport was introduced in the 2002 Games in Manchester.
Malaysia’s only prior medal in table tennis was a bronze in the women’s team, four years ago.
