BIRMINGHAM: Malaysia will now have three squash doubles pairs in the semi-finals of the Birmingham Commonwealth Games after Ng Eain Yow-Ivan Yuen checked into the last four of men's doubles on Saturday (Aug 6).

After Aifa Azman-Rachel Arnorld and Chan Yi Wei-Noor Ainaa Amani Ampandi booked their tickets in the women's doubles semi-finals on Fruday, Eain Yow-Ivan followed suit when they defeated India's Velavan Senthilkumar-Abhay Singh 11-8, 11-8 in the quarter-finals at the University of Birmingham Squash and Hockey Centre.

Eain Yow-Ivan will take on James Willstrop-Declan James in the last four tomorrow after the English pair trounced Australia's Cameron Pilley-Rhys Dowling 11-7, 11-4 in the other quarter-final.

Yesterday, Aifa-Rachel and Yi Wei-Noor Ainaa Amani cleared their women's doubles quarter-final hurdles to stay on track for squash medals.

In Sunday's semi-finals, Aifa-Rachel will take on England's Sarah-Jane Perry-Alison Waters while Yi Wei-Noor Ainaa Amani will face New Zealand's Joelle King-Amanda Landers Murphy. - Bernama
