Indore: Continuing their winning streak, Indian cueists Pankaj Advani, Kamal Chawla and Aditya Mehta on Thursday advanced to the quarter-finals at the Asian Snooker Championship.

In a tough game, Advani defeated UAE`s Mohammad Shaheb while Chawla humbled China`s Jin Long. Mehta thrashed Mohammad Lababi.

But, in-form Indian IH Manudev failed to make it to the last eight as he lost to China`s Tian Pengfel.

Thailand`s Passakorn Suwannawat and Noppadal Sangnil, Afghanistan`s Mohammad Rais Senzahi and Pakistan`s Shahid Aftab booked their berths in the quarterfinals.
