Awais wins silver in Asian Snooker

By our correspondent
LAHORE: Pakistan’s experienced cueist Awais Ullah Munir on Friday went down to Iran’s Ali Gharahgozlou of Iran 5-2 in the final of the ACBS Asian Men’s Snooker Championship 2024 which concluded in Doha.
It was not a perfect day for the Pakistani cueist who was expected to show more grace in the final.
It was Awais who started brightly as he lifted the first two frames 67-17 and 73-1 to show that he is going to be a tough contender for the title.
Awais also fired a break of 57 in the second frame.
However, after that he lost focus and failed to repeat the kind of performance he showed in the first two frames.
The Iranian displayed fine skills, took control of the situation and won the next five frames on the trot to seal an emphatic win and so lifted the title.
The frames score was 17-67, 01-73(57), 62-52, 58-29, 90-35 (56), 68-34, 70-44.
Awais Ullah on Thursday had downed Amir Sarkhosh of Iran in the semi-final 4-1 to carve a niche in the Friday’s final.
