In another quarter-final encounter, Vimal Mariwala sustained his impressive winning streak to shape the fortunes of Radio Club’s team Radio ‘Tigers’. Mariwala played some amazing pots in winning both his frames to help Tigers rally to a convincing 3-1 win against challengers Dadar Club ‘Fighters’ and a semi-final meeting with the young Khar Gym team.
Khar Gym started on a positive note as their doubles combo of Sahil Kakkad and Karan Rao (+30 handicap) managed to put it across the ECC duo of Mahesh Jagdale and Sunil Jain (+14) by a close 64-59 margin in the 9-red doubles first frame to put their team in front.
Later, the 14-year-old Sumehr (+30) in splendid fashion fought back to outshine Rajwardhan Joshi (+25) 102-89 in the 15-red singles second frame. The budding cueist Sumehr who trailed by 35 points clawed his way back with a 20 plus run and followed it with a tidy effort to cut the difference.
In the third frame, which was also a 15-red singles contest, the 20-year-old Harmehr (+30) mixed aggression with caution as he managed to overcome all the challenges posed by the experienced Anurag Bagri (+30) to script a deserving 109-73 victory and clinch a quick verdict in Khar Gym’s favour.
