CCI Snooker Classic 2024: Superb Dhvaj Haria fires high 141 break in first-round victory

Mumbai, Feb 27 (Ajit Weekly News) Dhvaj Haria showed superb touch and stole the thunder rolling in a magnificent effort of 141, currently the top break in the competition, and went on to dash the hopes of young Pinak Anap by snatching a tight 4-3 frame scores in a best-of-7-frame first round match in the CCI Snooker Classic 2024 here on Tuesday.

Haria got the better of Pinak Anap in the Rs 12.5 lakh prize-money event organised by the Cricket Club of India and played at the CCI’s Sir Wilson Jones billiards hall here.

Meanwhile, CCI’s upcoming cueist Krish Bajaj went down fighting against Samar Khandelwal 2-4 in a closely contested first-round encounter. Khandelwal ran up a break of 43 in the opening frame and then raced to a 2-0 lead before Bajaj staged a gallant fightback by winning the next two frames to draw level at 2-all.

But, lack of experience saw Bajaj narrowly lose the next two frames as Khandelwal wrapped up the match by posting a 64-16, 53-45, 21-58, 30-73, 53-41 and 75-72 verdict to advance to the second round.

The lanky left-handed Gujarat cueist Haria potted fluently and produced that marathon run in the second frame to open up a 2-0 lead. The gutsy Anap managed to win the next two frames to level the scores before Haria constructed another substantial break of 64 to win the fifth to stay in the lead. Once again, Anap drew level as he managed to pocket the sixth frame. Haria managed to stay focused and went on to win the deciding frame to clinch a 92-2, 141-0, 25-67, 53-71, 76-31, 39-69 and 60-30 frame scores win.

Later, J. Arun Kumar also constructed a century break of 105 and two other substantial breaks of 58 and 49 to defeat R. Girish 4-0 (67-57, 73-42, 76-50, 105-8) in a first-round encounter between Chennai based players. In another keenly contested encounter, lucky loser Abhishek Bajaj dished out a much-improved performance and with a bit of luck managed to scrape past Siddharth Parikh 4-3 (13-54, 60-12, 74-63(55), 9-59, 56-5, 0-78(78), and 66-61).
