Pankaj Advani from India who won the Asian Snooker title on the previous Thursday here in Doha has now reached the final of Qatar 6Reds World Cup 2021. In the final, he will take on Pakistan Player Babar Masih for the coveted title.
Pankaj once again repeated his victory by defeating Iranian player Amir Sarkhosh, whom he defeated last Thursday to claim the Asian Snooker title.
Today in the semi-final match, Pankaj obtained a lead of 3-1 with a well-crafted break of 62 points. Although Amir claimed another frame but Pankaj responded once again with a break of 45 points to maintain the lead. In fact, he enhanced that lead by winning the seventh frame too.
Amir attempted a strong recovery and made two small breaks of 30 and 35 points in the eighth frame and tried the best possible safety with decent potting but towards the end on colour balls, he lost control and Pankaj smartly potted the rest of the balls to secure his berth for final.
In the final, he will now take on Babar Masih of Pakistan, who knocked out debutant Richard Wienold of Germany 6-4.
