LONDON: Malaysia's Chan Peng Soon-Goh Liu Ying made the country proud when they stormed into the semi-finals of the mixed doubles event at the All-England.

The duo put a class show to beat home favourites Chris Adcok-Imogen Bankier of England 21-16, 15-21, 21-17 in a nail-biting quarter-final match.

Their sensational win put an end to the gallant run of the English pair, who had stunned top seeds Zhang Nan-Zhao Yunlei of China on the opening day.

Peng Soon was delighted and said: '' We have surprised ourselves to come this far. We never went beyond the second round in the previous All-England. It is a great outing here for us.'

They will take on the winner of the match between England's Nathan Robertson-Jenny Wallwork and Indonesia's Tantowi Ahmad-Lilyana Natsir next.

The formidable Indonesian pair had defeated Nathan Robertson-Jenny Wallwork 21-19, 14-21, 21-6.

Meanwhile, Daren Liew's good run came to an end when he lost 15-21, 13-21 to Lee Hyun-il of South Korea in the men's singles quarter-finals.
