7th Oct 2013

KARACHI, (Dawn): The pair of Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Sajjad did Pakistan proud by capturing the International Billiards and Snooker Federation (IBSF) Team Event title in Carlow, Ireland, on Sunday routing Iran 5-3 in the best of nine frames final.

The formidable Pakistan duo recovered from three frames down to turn the tables on their opponents Soheil Vahedi and Amir Sarkosh. Pakistan was home 33-70, 18-68, 9-74, 88-20, 67-11, 87-15, 75-43, 58-35.

Sajjad hammered two elegant breaks of 83 and 51 in the fourth and seventh frames while Asif piled up a break of 50 in the fifth.

This is the second world crown for Asif in less than a year after his unprecedented rise in the IBSF world amateur snooker championship at Sofia, Bulgaria, on Dec 2 last.

For Sajjad, this is the maiden world title after his triumph in Korat Cup, a Thai ranking event besides finishing runner-up in the Asian Snooker Championship.Earlier, the two Pakistanis were crashed out from the 6-Reds event in pre quarter-finals on Saturday.

The victorious Pakistan team is due to arrive from Carlow in the wee hours of Tuesday. President of the Pakistan Billiards and Snooker Federation (PBSF) Alamgir Shaikh, secretary Munawwar Hussain Shaikh and international referee Shabbir Hussain will also return with the victorious cueists.

Final results:

Pakistan bt Iran 5-3 (33-70, 18-68, 9-74, 88-20, 67-11, 87-15, 75-43, 58-35).
