The Thai, who took a brisk start, maintained the pace over his opponent despite conceding third and fifth frames.

Mohammad Sajjad and Imran Shahzad could not go beyond league matches. Results: Quarter-final: Passakorn Suwannawat (Thailand) bt Shahid Aftab (Pakistan) 5-2 (93-3, 65-21, 52-65, 75-25, 55-69, 112-4, 65-7).
