The England stars defeated their second successive Chinese pair to claim the title in Basel.

Ravenshead's Chris and wife Gabby, the world number fives, had also been taken to three games in the quarter-finals by Indonesia's Praveen Jordan and Debby Susanto.

There was little to choose between the pairs in the final until the third seeded Adcocks broke clear from Chai and Tang 14-14 in the opening game and took it on their first game point.

That was the perfect springboard and the Adcocks led all the way in the second to clinch victory.

The result will set them up for the next two World Superseries events next month before tackling the European Championships.
