Chinese Taipei have yet to lose a set to their rivals including Kazakhstan, the team they had won in their last Pool C match to top the pool at the end of the preliminaries.

“I think Hong Kong have shown up their high level than what they did before.They are a good team with promising future. They also have some tall players. Against Thailand on Wednesday, of course it is going to be more difficult than today. They are a very strong team with highly-experienced spikers but we will play a relaxed match and do our best,” Chinese Taipei’s head coach’s Lin Ming Hui commented after the match.

Tseng Wan Ling was the top scorer with 12 points for Chinese Taipei comprising 11 kills and one block, while Chim Wing Lam led Hong Kong with only 5 points.
