2017 Asian School Doubles gold medallist of Ivan Tse and Alex Yu of Hong Kong 1 set a cracking pace with 516 in their opening game to lead by 36 pins. Singapore's Jomond Chia, 17, partnering Oh Han Qin, rolled his second career 300, to trail in second.

Han and Lee, who was third with an opening game of 479, posted a stunning 535 in their second game to move into the lead, 124 pins ahead of Malaysia's first pair of Mohd Hafiz Zainuddin and Singles gold medallist, Tun Ameerul Al-Hakim in second after a superb game 2 of 509.

Hong Kong 1 slipped down to third after managing only 374 while Singapore 2 also suffered a set back to drop down to fourth.

Malaysia then erased the old 3-game record of 1409 set by Korea in 2010 after another big game of 516 for a 3-game total of 1449 to take over the running. Korea 1 trailed the Malaysian pair by 11 pins despite adding 424 in their third game with Hong Kong 1 still in contention in third. Korea's second pair of Park Geon Ha and Lim Seong Lyul made up grounds to take up fourth and Indonesia 2 in fifth.

Indonesia's Paolo M. Hernandez and Billy Muhammad Islam stormed home with 488 and 485 in their last two games to snatch the silver medal with 2639. The second Korean pair ended with 397 to clinch the bronze medal with 2619.

Rookie Mohd Hazif chocked with 158 while Tun Ameerul down 204 for a disasterous 362 to drop out of a medal in fifth position with 2586. Hong Kong 1 needed both the players to strike out in their final frame but missed the podium by 28 pins to take up fourth position with 2591.
