New Delhi:

Iconic Indian cueist Pankaj Advani displayed his class with a phenomenal victory over Iran’s Amir Sarkhosh in the final to claim the IBSF World snooker championship in Doha. Advani trounced Sarkhosh 8-2 to clinch his 18th World championship title at the Al-Arabi sports club.

The best-of-15 frame final witnessed Amir pocketing the first frame rather comfortably. The Iranian looked strong and focused in the second frame too, progressing well and nearing a 2-0 scoreline, but a missed green pot gave a lifeline to Pankaj as he seized the opportunity with both hands and drew parity.

Pankaj never looked back from there as he raced to a 5-2 lead, though Sarkhosh came with a century break to win the sixth frame, and after the break, wrapped it up with three straight frames.
