Indians crash out of World Snooker C'ship

Highlight Story

The Indian challenge, spearheaded by Pankaj Advani and Kamal Chawla, was blown away as former professional Lee Walker, the 35-year-old from Wales, and Iranian teenager Hoosein Vafaei Ayouri entered the final of the IBSF World snooker championship here Friday.

Advani, the 26-year-old Bangalorean, seemed uncharacteristically distracted and made a mess of the openings to lose to Walker 1-7, while Chawla was swept away by the attacking Ayouri who won in a canter at 7-2, in the semi-finals.

While Advani was rather disappointing especially after winning the first frame as he allowed the 35-year old Walker back into the match, Chawla, the 32-year old from Bhopal, appeared clueless against the talented 17-year old Ayouri who feels he is good enough to turn professional.
