Dhvaj, who has already made a mark at international level, registered a overwhelming victory by more than 300 points after four excellent breaks of 106, 88, 65 and 88 points. Alok could not latch on to initial chances coming his way and struggled to get hold of the match, and eventually lost out to Dhvaj. Pankaj, on the other hand, recorded his second triumph of the day by defeating Indias two-time World Champion Rupesh Shah. Pankaj missed a golden opportunity to score double century break when he ended it on 193 after he failed to pot a yellow in bottom pocket. Rupesh had to score 285 in his last chance, but failed and in his next visit Pankaj scored the remaining 55 points to win his second match of the day. PTI BDN BS BSlast_img
