World Snooker Champion 2021 – Ahsan Ramzan from Pakistan
The 16 years old boy from Pakistan has now become the new snooker sensation in the world. Here in Doha today, he won the most prestigious trophy of the World Snooker by defeating Iranian player Amir Sarkhosh.
The final match had its own excitement where most of the spectators came to see this young boy who defeated the tournament favourite and defending champion Muhammad Asif in the semi-final round.
the final started with too tight strings where Ahsan pulled the first frame by 3 points and then enhanced his lead with a break of 70 points to 2-0.
Amir cut the deficit by winning the third frame and then crafted a century break of 102 points to level the match again.
He didn’t stop there and won the next two frames too to take a 4-2 lead. After losing one frame, Amir came close to victory by winning the 8th frame to lead 5-3.
From there onwards, Ahsan went on for his flawless game and continued on the scoring tactics to take away two more frames to set the decider.
In the decider, Ahsan chose each and every shot very cautiously and execute them with 100% precision to put out Amir from the frame.
Though Amir tried and succeeded to place two snookers, but on the next opening, Ahsan potted the green and other colour balls to become the World Champion for the year 2021.
Later during the Prize Distribution ceremony, the IBSF Vice President Jim Leacy extends invitation to both the finalists, Ahsan Ramzan of Pakistan and Amir Sarkhosh of Iran, for the World Games 2022 to be held at Birmingham, USA.
