The scratch pairing of Chan Peng Soon-Valeree Siow recorded one of the quickest victories of day two at the India Open as the mixed doubles duo breezed past Raju Mohamed Rehan-Jamaludeen Anees Kowsar 21-4, 21-9 in 20 minutes.

Chan, who rejoined the Badminton Association of Malaysia after splitting with Goh Liu Ying, was paired with Siow, a promising women’s and mixed doubles shuttler who won several titles in lower tier events last year.

Chan’s initial observation of the draw is that the pair would have no problems making it to the quarter-finals at least.

“This victory was a good warm-up for me and Valeree. Our combination is okay, we have not been tested properly just yet,” he said.

The Malaysians next play Kashish-Saruni Sharma for a place in the last eight.

Ng Tze Yong joined them in the second round after he upset seventh seeded Tommy Sugiarto, beating the Indonesian 21-16, 14-21, 21-5 in just over an hour.

Ng goes on to face France's Lucas Claerbout on Thursday.

Soong Joo Ven, meanwhile, takes on reigning world champion Loh Kean Yew.
