Pakistan’s Babar Masih outclasses India’s Ishpreet Singh at Six-red World Championship

KARACHI – Pakistani cueist Babar Masih has defeated the Indian player Ishpreet Singh Chadha in the first round of six Red World Snooker Championship in Qatar.

Reports quoting sources said Babar achieved the feat on Friday after he outclassed his peer from arch-rival India starting his campaign in the International Billards Snooker Federation 6 Reds World Cup.

The fully prepared Pakistani player didn’t let Singh win even a single frame while finishing the group D’s match with 5-0. Singh turned nervous and miss the crucial colour balls that cost him the game, he was just a blackball away from the win if he hadn’t missed pocketing it.

Babar found it just at the pocket’s brink and cueball at an ideal position as the ball had wobbled in Chadha's attempt to pocket it making him take the initial lead.

The ill-fated Indian player also made a number of mistakes in the second frame when he missed pocketing an easy pink ball placed on the original position. The blunders benefit Pakistan’s Masih, who took the lead at a score of 2-0. Following Babar’s win, the Indian cueist didn’t resist and lost the next three frames.
