Pakistani cueists Mohammad Sajjad, Shahram Changezi, Babar Masih, Mohammad Asif, Shahid Aftab, Mohammad Majid Ali, Asjad Iqbal and Khurram Agha managed to qualify for the knockout stage of World Men’s 6-Reds Snooker tournament.
Forty two players from across the world are taking part in the knockout where the top three players from the 14 groups have moved on to the next stage.
Twenty two players were qualified for the last 32 round due to a “bye”, judging by their performance while the rest of the players will have to take part in another round with 10 winners to join the ranks of the tournament’s qualified players.
Dharminder Lilly of India has been seeded on the top in the qualification followed by the neighbouring country’s Mohammad Sajjad and Shahram Changezi.
World champion Yan Bingtao has seeded on the seventh spot while defending champion Pankaj Advani has been reseeded on 12th place.
