Pankaj Advani-Aditya Mehta pair clinch World Team Snooker Title
Mandalay: The Indian duo of Pankaj Advani and Aditya Mehta on Wednesday defeated the Thai team to emerge world champions in the IBSF World Snooker Team event in Mandalay (Myanmar).
With this, Advani’s world title tally went to a phenomenal 23. Meanwhile, Aditya claimed his maiden at a time when his future is being doubted due to health issues.
For Advani, this win has ensured that his name is now there on every IBSF World title on offer. He had won the world billiards event here last week.
The result: India-1 beat Thailand-2 5-2 (65-31, 9-69, 74(55)-8, 21-64, 55-44, 72(52)-23, 83-9).
