KUALA LUMPUR: Men’s doubles pair Man Wei Chong-Tee Kai Wun battled valiantly to end Malaysia's barren run at home but faltered against South Koreans Kang Min-hyuk-Seo Seung-jae at the Malaysian Masters final at the Axiata Arena in Bukit Jalil on Sunday (May 28).

Wei Chong-Kai Wun, the world No. 26, battled hard but Min-hyuk-Seung-jae proved to be the steadier pair as the Koreans secured a 21-15, 22-24, 21-19 win in 80 minutes.

Badminton legend Datuk Lee Chong Wei was the last Malaysian to achieve success at home, when he won the Malaysian Open men’s singles title at the same venue in 2018.

It was Wei Chong-Kai Wun’s second international final as the pair had secured the Taiwan Open title last year.
