Pakistan player Babar Masih knocked out his compatriot Haris Tahir in a one-sided affair 6-0 in the quarter-final match and confirmed his entry into the medals round of the Qatar 6Reds World Cup.
Haris appeared to be under pressure of playing against his senior from his country and failed to score on the opportunities he got. In most of the frames, he was out of reach and seeking to apply snooker, which he failed whereas Babar constantly dominated in all the frames with the breaks of 34, 38 and 32 to reach a scoreline of 6-0.
In the semi-final match, Babar will now take on the player from Germany, Richard Wienold who knocked out Ali Alobaidli of Qatar after a thrilling score of 6-4.
Richard dominated initially and won the first four frames with breaks of 37 and 32 in the first and third frames. After that Ali Alobaidli made a remarkable recovery in the match with two consecutive breaks of 31 and 47.
