Chris and Gabby Adcock continued their fine form with a first-round mixed doubles win at the Malaysia Open.

The world number sevens beat Chinese Taipei's Lin Chia Yu and Wu Ti Jung 21-16 21-15 in just 30 minutes.

They will play Dechapol Puavaranukroh and Sapsiree Taerattanachai of Thailand in the second round.

The English pair made both the Indian Open semi-finals last week and the All England semi-finals in March, but lost to China's Lu Kai and Huang Yaqiong.

Elsewhere, there was disappointment for Ben Lane and Jess Pugh, who went out 21-17 21-13 to Hong Kong duo Tang Chun Man and Tse Ying Suet in the mixed doubles.

In the men's doubles, Chris Langridge and Marcus Ellis also lost to Chinese Taipei's Lu Ching Yao and Yang Po Han in three games.
