Malaysia will meet England in the Commonwealth Games semi-finals on Monday after they recorded a straightforward 3-0 victory over Sri Lanka in Sunday's quarter-finals.

As expected, the national contingent were not troubled against the badminton minnows and duly took the lead through mixed doubles pair Tan Kian Meng-Lai Pei Jing, who overcame Sachin Dias-Thilini Hendahewa 21-14, 21-14.

Ng Tze Yong made it 2-0 with a 21-15, 21-14 success over Niluka Karunaratne, before Goh Jin Wei confirmed the passage to the last four with a 21-9, 21-5 win against Vidara Suhasni Vidanage.

The outright victory meant the services of men’s doubles pair Aaron Chia-Soh Wooi Yik and women’s doubles duo Pearly Tan-M.Thinaah were not needed.

However, that may change tomorrow against the English, who are made up of a more formidable line-up.

Ben Lane-Sean Vendy (men’s doubles) and Chloe Birch-Lauren Smith (women’s doubles) are ranked in the top 20 and should test the Malaysians, while Ng Tze Yong is also in for a potential banana skin encounter against Toby Penty in the men’s singles.
