THE EXPRESS TRIBUNE, CARLOW, 05th OCTOBER 2013: The Pakistani team continued their great run in the IBSF World Snooker Championship underway in Carlow, first beating Poland and then overcoming India to book a place in the semi-finals with hosts Ireland.

Yesterday, Pakistan had stood at the top of their group after beating India 4-1 in their last match of the round-robin stage.

As the last-16 knockout phase began today, the Pakistani duo of Muhammad Asif and Muhammad Sajjad first defeated Poland in the pre-quarter final, and then pushed India’s Manan Chandra and Brijesh Damani out of the tournament with an emphatic 3-0 pounding in the quarter final.

Pakistan will now face Ireland’s Michael Judge and Robert Murphy in the semi-final, who beat a UAE team in their quarter-final.
