Chinese Taipei took advantage of Qatar's errors to take the coveted men's team of four bowling title on the final day of competition at the 2017 Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games (AIMAG) here in Turkmenistan's capital.

"Their performance made us believe that we could do it as well."
Qatar, who beat favourites South Korea in the semi-finals, struggled during the match.
"A silver is a lot for us," Ghanim Mohammed H A Aboujassoum, whose team won Qatar's first medal since the 2007 edition of the AIMAG in Macau, said.
"We have been preparing for months.
"We were focusing on this tournament to get at least one medal and we have reached our goal."
Joining South Korea on the third step of the podium were fellow beaten semi-finalists Indonesia.
South Korea won the women's team of four title with an 873-801 win over the Philippines.
The match was closer than had been expected with the Philippines, who won their first women's medal from the four times bowling has appeared at the AIMAG, giving the South Koreans a scare.

"We have a silver medal and we competed with one of the best in the world."
