Thomas Bjorn's Europe side found themselves one point behind after the completion of day one of the EurAsia Cup with his side struggling to dominate the fourballs. This against an Asian contingent that boasts just one player (Yuta Ikeda) inside the top 40, with half the team residing outside the OWGR top 100.

Team Europe led in that last match standing on the 18th tee but a brilliant birdie at the last from Li stopped Bjorn's men from heading into the weekend on level terms.

"You saw how early on, everybody was kind of down and losing a few matches early".

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.

India's experienced duo of Lahiri and Chawrasia paid dearly for their patchy start over the first five holes, by which time Henrik Stenson and Tommy Fleetwood were 3-up. I do that every day and I talk to a lot of people.

Team Europe captain Thomas Bjorn enjoyed his bright moment when three-time Ryder Cup star, Paul Casey, and Europe's No 1 Tommy Fleetwood scored a 4&3 win against South Korean An Byeonghun and Thailand's Kiradech Aphibarnrat. I'm not surprised or shocked by our results so far.

Europe took the lead at Glenmarie Golf and Country Club after winning its first three foursomes on Saturday, but Asia pulled level before Li Haotong and Nicholas Fung beat Europe's Ross Fisher and Bernd Wiesberger 3 and 1 for the lead.

"I don't want to ever sound cocky with a team like Europe, and I'm not going to get cocky, but it's a great start", Asia captain Arjun Atwal said.

Belgium's Thomas Pieters and England's Matthew Fitzpatrick thought they had struck another fatal blow to Team Asia's EurAsia Cup title aspirations when they won 3&2.

Europe had looked on course to banish the memory of their 3½-2½ defeat in Friday's Fourball session when they put the first three points on the board on Saturday.

That point sparked a comeback for Asia as Thailand's Phachara Khongwatmai and Japan's Hideto Tanihara showed their putting prowess to bring down Sweden's Alex Noren and Ireland's Paul Dunne 2&1.

Atwal would have been anxious that the scoreline was running away from the hosts but their comeback began with the match of the day as Yuta Ikeda and Gavin Green won three of the final four holes against Levy and Rafa Cabrera Bello to secure a winning point on the 18th green.
