Fifth seeds New Zealand are through to the quarter-finals at the women's world team squash championship after beating Canada 2-1 in Nimes, France, this morning (NZT).

Kiwi No 3 Kylie Lindsay dropped her match against Susannah King 14-12 in the fifth game but New Zealand's two top-20 ranked players did the business in the first knockout round to secure progression to the last eight.

World No 5 Joelle King lost the first game 11-8 to Samantha Cornett in the top singles but bounced back to take the second 11-6 before breezing through the final two games 11-2 11-3, while Jaclyn Hawkes had a straight games victory over Alexandra Norman 11-5 13-11 11-9.

New Zealand will play third seeds Malaysia in tomorrow's quarter-finals.

The Malaysians are led by world No 1 Nicol David. Top seeds England will play Ireland, Hong Kong face Australia and second seeded Egypt square off with India in the other quarter-finals.
