In the first match, Pakistan lost to Kazakhstan 3-0; Salman Virk was beaten 7-11, 9-11, 8-11 by Kirill Gerassimenko, Muhammad Rameez went down 11-6, 7-11, 3-11, 7-11 to Bekulan Zhamal and Abdul Haseeb was outplayed 11-7, 5-11, 5-11, 7-11 by Erik Raiter.

The following match saw Qatar dominating Pakistan 2-1, with Salman losing 11-9, 9-11, 7-11, 8-11 to Muhammad Abdulhussein, Haseeb surrendering 6-11, 11-5, 7-11 to Abdulaziz Jassim Abdulla and Rameez securing the lone win for Pakistan with an 8-11, 12-10, 17-15, 11-4 victory over Muhammad Sulaiti.
