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.
