Hong Kong, China travel to Indonesia in this Asia/Oceania Zone Group II relegation play-off, with both desperate to avoid demotion to the fourth tier of the competition. Indonesia have won all six of the teams' previous meetings, including recent clashes in 2008 and 2012.
After losing the first two singles rubbers against Kuwait, it was always going to be an uphill battle for Indonesia to advance beyond the first round. While Elbert Sie and David Agung Susanto did manage a doubles win, Susanto was unable to keep the tie alive in the first of the reverse singles on the Sunday. Despite winning the first rubber in its tie with Thailand, Hong Kong, China was unable to make the most of this momentum, ultimately going down 4-1 in Phuket.
