History repeated itself on day two of the EurAsia Cup presented by DRB-HICOM as Tommy Fleetwood helped Europe put their first point on the board in the foursomes.

Race to Dubai champion Fleetwood was once again sent out to lead the visitors on Saturday and, playing alongside Ryder Cup star Henrik Stenson, delivered a 3 and 2 win against Anirban Lahiri and S.S.P Chawrasia.

Fleetwood, who alongside Casey had won the first point in Friday's fourball matches, holed the winning putt from five feet at the 16th on day two to pull Europe level with Asia.

And with Paul Casey and Tyrrell Hatton wrapping up a 2 and 1 win against Byeong Hun An and Kiradech Aphibarnrat shortly after, Europe took an overall 4½-3½ lead.

Thomas Bjørn's men were also ahead in match four, with Matthew Fitzpatrick and Thomas Pieters three up against Sunghoon Kang and Poom Saksansin with three holes remaining.

Alex Levy and Rafa Cabrera Bello's clash with Yuta Ikeda and Gavin Green was all square after 16 holes and Asia were up in the bottom two matches.

Fleetwood said: "I wasn't on my game at all and Henrik was sort of constantly getting me out of trouble, and then we had that good patch, ten, 11 and 12, where we holed three good putts and that was massive because they really started playing well sort of midway through that front nine, and it was a good match."
