While the pairing of Tommy Fleetwood and Paul Casey saw off Byeong Hun An and Kiradech Aphibarnrat 4&3, and Tyrrell Hatton and Ross Fisher got the better of India's Anirban Lahiri and SSP Chawrasia 5&4, the rest of Europe's players struggled.

The anchor match saw Bernd Wiesberger partner Englishman Ross Fisher, a victor on Friday, against Haotong Li and Nicholas Fung but despite moving 2up at the par five 6th green Asia responded quickly and Li continued his strong putting display from the opening day's play to secure a 3&1 win and maintain Asia's slender advantage heading into Sunday's singles.

Arjun, an eight-time victor on the Asian Tour, also said Thailand's Poom Saksansin and South Korean Kang Sunghoon in match four against Team Europe helped give Team Asia a much-needed early boost.

Asia is seeking its first win in the third EurAsia Cup.

Despite his win, England's Casey said his opponents fought hard: "What great golf we played, but the Asians threw a lot at us".

"I believe in all 12 of them, as I always will".

"We believe we can go out in 12 singles and win the singles matches and win this tournament".

Speaking previously about his transition, she said: "The only thing I wish is that that my family will learn to accept me". The message, purporting to confirm her death, has now been deleted from Rebekah's Twitter account.

"We are looking forward to the challenge ahead, but we are in a position where we feel like we knew we could find ourselves in, and we knew this Asian team is very strong and very much ready to play". "We are slightly disappointed with the outcome today but I'm sure we can rise to what's ahead of us tomorrow", said Bjorn.

As golf in Asia continues to grow at a rapid rate, the amount of players from the region making a positive impact on tours around the world points to a bright future for the sport and adds credibility to the EurAsia Cup.

In the last edition of the event, a Darren Clarke-captained European team romped to an 18 1/2-5 1/2 blowout win over their Asian counterparts in the second edition of the biennial matchplay contest in 2016.

The most spectacular moment of the day's play came in its closing moments when China's Li fired a last-gasp birdie to halve his match against Austria's Bernd Wiesberger and Spaniard Rafa Cabrera Bello, and put Team Asia in the lead. At this stage, it looked like Europe was ready to pull away.

But victory for Yuta Ikeda of Japan and Malaysia's Gavin Green proved the turning point for Asia, and they went on to win the final two games and end the day on 6 1/2 to Europe's 5 1/2.

Europe, who started the day trailing in four of the six matches, managed to calm proceedings and turn things around by eventually finishing the day trailing by just one point.
