Kido/Hendra had to muster out their prowess to outlast the Malaysian duo in a breath-taking 16-21, 26-24, 21-19 game.

The victory narrows the score to 4-5 for the Malaysians. The Malaysians who won gold medal in the previous quadrennial event in Doha, Qatar in 2006 still take the lead in their international meets.
