China's Li Haotong yesterday held his nerve to birdie his final hole and give hosts Asia a slender lead over champions Europe on the opening day of the EurAsia Cup in Kuala Lumpur.

"It feels great. I love match play, especially when you have a partner like Tommy Fleetwood", said Casey, who was one of Bjorn's two wild-card selections.

"We're very well aware that Asia has never fielded a stronger team than they do this time", the Dane said, according to the European Tour website.

"We're very well aware that Asia has never fielded a stronger team than they do this time, and golf is a unusual game", Bjorn said. Team Asia captain Arjun Atwal said that his players also refused to see themselves as underdogs.

With Asia holding the lead on a day of constant drizzle, Li Haotong earned the biggest cheer for the men in red after he birdied the final hole of the final fourball match for he and Nicholas Fung to force a draw against Europe's Bernd Wiesberger and Rafa Cabrera Bello.

Asia rallied to take the lead with Yuta Ikeda and Gavin Green beating Thomas Pieters and Matthew Fitzpatrick 2 and 1, before Poom Saksansin and Kang Sung-hoon defeated Henrik Stenson and Alex Levy 5 and 4.

Atwals strategic pairing of Thailands Phachara Khongwatmai and Japans Hideto Tanihara where there is a mix of youth and experience could prove to be the difference as they face off with Swedens Alex Noren and Irelands Paul Dunne.

Cabrera-Bello's immaculate putting saw the pair lead by one at the 18th tee, but they failed to match Asia's birdie and had to settle for a half-point.

"When I look at the scoring in the groups I feel like a couple of guys might feel like they should have done better", said Bjorn, "but in general there was a lot of good golf from our side". But we expected that.

With Asia having Tied 10-10 in the inaugural edition in 2014 and going down 18 � - 5 � in 2016, Atwal, leading the side for the first time, is keen on reversing that and register an upset win at the Glenmarie Golf and Country Club. The rust had been knocked off the golf swings in practice and maybe the competitive rust might have needed to be knocked off today.

"So, I suspect that we'll go out tomorrow and be ready to play, and foursomes is a very different game".
