Olympian Achanta Sharath Kamal on Sunday closed in on his second successive international title when he defeated Jiang Tianyi of Hong Kong 4-1 to storm into final of the Egypt Open table tennis championships in Cairo.

World No. 76, Sharath started the final-four clash on an attacking note pocketing the first two games 11-5, 11-6 before Tianyi regained touch and reduced the difference by pipping the Indian 16-14 in a keenly contested third game.
