However, the higher ranked Indonesian player made a strong comeback in the match by playing remarkable badminton in the second game.
Rumbaka played with aggression and established a tremendous gap on score board until the end of first half.
After the break, the Indonesian shuttler continued putting up wonderful show and eventually took the set with an incredible 21-7 score on the board.
In the deciding set, Rumbaka spared no chance for his Malaysian opponent to get a good flow. He remained in commanding position all the way and took a wonderful lead until the break.
The impressive Rumbaka remained on track after the break and easily took the final set with a comfortable score of 21-14.
The in-form Indonesian player managed to win this tough battle with a 20-22, 21-7 and 21-14 margin on the board.
