Australia and Singapore are through to the Semi Finals after victories over Malaysia and England in the Women's Doubles Quarter Finals.

Singapore's Jia Wei Li and Xue Ling Zhang have defeated England's Joanna Parker and Kelly Sibley in four close games, 11-8 8-11 11-9 11-5.

Top-seeds Li and Zhang struggled to find their rhythm in the first and second games, allowing Parker and Sibley to work up confidence and momentum.

After winning a tight third game, the Singapore team seized control, benefiting from the England team's errors and its lack of experience.

Australia's Jian Fang Lay and Miao Miao survived a first-game scare to take their Quarter Final against Lee Wei Beh and Sock Khim Ng of Malaysia.

Beh and Ng took the first game 17-15 after a marathon battle. However, Lay and Miao hit their stride to win the next three games 11-5 11-4 11-9.

Lay and Miao will now meet the second seeds Sharon Tan and Yan Xu of Singapore, while the Li and Zhang will face the New Zealand team of Karen Jin Li and Annie Yang.

Tan will be keen to improve on the bronze that she won in the Women's Doubles at Manchester, while XU is making her Commonwealth Games debut.

The Women's Doubles Semi Finals will take place early on day ten.
