China A's reward for its victory is a tough quarterfinal tie against Group A winners Wales.

Riga Masters champion Ryan Day and two-time world champion Mark Williams have been in excellent form so far at the Word Cup, winning 19 of the 25 frames they have played so far.

That included a 4-1 humbling of China B in their fourth match, so Ding and Liang will need to be on top form to make it through to the semifinal.

China B have an intriguing match-up against Belgium, one of the surprise packages of the tournament that qualified top of Group B above the seeds China A and Hong Kong, China.

With Belgium's 22-year-old rising star Luca Brecel set to face up against teenage maestros Zhou and Yan, the match will bring together some of the hottest prospects in world snooker.
