In a battle that lasted for 45 minutes, Shi raced to a game point soon after at 20-13, which he later converted in his third attempt.
The second game started in a similar fashion, with both players tying at 5-5 post the initial few minutes. Scoring five consecutive points thereafter in the later half, Shi dominated the proceedings to advance to the semi-final in straight games.
Prannoy had previously registered straight-game wins over Anders Antonsen and Hsu Jen Hao to reach the third round.
