Indian player Pankaj Advani has conquered back-to-back two major International championships. Last Thursday he won the Asian Snooker Championship and just after five days he stayed unbeaten in the Qatar 6Reds World Cup 2021 and lifted the coveted trophy with the winners' prize of 12000 USD.
Today he played the final against Pakistan player and 2017 World Team Snooker Champion Babar Masih, where Pankaj started on a winning note but after losing the second frame he raised the lead 3-1 with a break of 32 points.
Babar recovered with a break of 53 points in the fifth frame but again faced stiff competition when Pankaj won the next three frames in a row.
That was a do-or-die situation for Babar and he put in all his experience to secure frames after frame and succeeded in pocketing the next three frames scoring 43-00, 46-12 and 59-15.
The score was 6-5 in favour of Pankaj and Babar was placing good safety, but when Pankaj got a chance for long red pot, he succeeded to accumulate few red-black combinations to score a break of 32 points. Although Pankaj committed a foul on the last red, no major damage and he sealed the frame in the next visit to win the title.
The presentation ceremony was graced by the IBSF President, Mubarak Al-Khayarin, QBSF President Mohammed Mubarak Al-Ramzani, IBSF Secretary Michael Alkhoury, IBSF Executive Alamgir Shaikh, officials from QBSF and the representatives from the Sponsors Ooredoo and Al-Maha.
