Advani to meet Russell in IBSF World Billiards final

Doha: India’s Pankaj Advani will take on England’s Mike Russell in the final of the IBSF World Billiards Championship 150 Up at Al Arabi Sports Club in Doha on Sunday.

While defending champion Advani quelled the challenge of his compatriot Rupesh Shah to win 5-2 in the semifinal on Saturday, Russell swept Singapore’s Peter Gilchrist aside to win 5-1.

Earlier, Advani who is unbeaten in the tournament, had got the better of Dhruv Sitwala in the last eight and look firm favourite to win the title.

But Russell has steadily gained momentum after his shock loss to Dhvaj Haria in his opening match and could pose stiff challenge to the 32-year old Advani.
