KARACHI: Pakistan’s Muhammad Asif reached the semi-finals in the IBSF World Snooker Championship after beating  Syria 6-2, Express News reported on Saturday.

Earlier, Asif had won against Australia’s Vinnie Calabrese 5-0 in their last 32-match played yesterday in Sofia, Bulgaria.

Asif showed great confidence as he beat Calabrese 63-40, 115-14, 69-65, 67-55 and 67-15.

Team manager Munawwar Sheikh was pleased with the performances of cueists Asif and Asjad Iqbal, who bowed out of the event at the start of the knock-out stage after a 4-3 loss.

“Asif has been simply outstanding throughout the tournament, while Iqbal was unlucky to get knocked out,” Sheikh told The Express Tribune earlier.


Mazen | 8 years ago | Reply Against all odds, this man has showed that what a resolute determination can achieve. This man lives nearby my house, and believe me he is self-maid guy. I really salute this man for what he has achieved. He made us proud. Thumbs up for Asif. The government should pay heed and reward him accordingly as he gave us what our Cricket team couldn't able to achieve for a while. May you live long and success kiss your toes.

Asif good job done so far. Your confidence, concentration and commitment to win is the essence of your success. Whether you win or loose in final, it will give you a lot of confidence for your future success. It is a one man show. Nobody has guided/trained/helped you. You raised from ashes and will become a bright star.
