National mixed doubles pair Chen Tang Jie-Toh Ee Wei crashed out of the World Tour Finals after losing 21-18, 18-21, 14-21 against Dechapol Puavaranukroh-Sapsiree Taerattanachai in their final group match on Friday.
The world number eight gave it their best in the 70-minute, especially in the first game which they stood strong towards the end to take a deserved lead.
But the Thais used their experience in the ensuing two games to draw the Malaysians into committing unforced errors to book their berth in the semi-finals.
The final game especially saw Chen-Toh tiring at the end of the game to effectively end their campaign at the group stage.
They will still be heartened by this experience, having beaten world number two Yuta Watanabe-Arisa Higashino in their second match on Thursday.
"We made some simple mistakes today. We are not matured yet and still have a lot to learn," the pair said.
\Men's doubles Aaron Chia-Soh Wooi Yik also saw their campaign come to an end after losing all their group matches.
