Avinash Kumar wins maiden junior snooker title

Kolkata: Continuing his dream run, 20-year-old Delhi lad Avinash Kumar pocketed his maiden junior snooker title in the National Billiards & Snooker Championship here on Sunday.

The qualifier, who stormed into top four by ousting top seed Ishpreet Chadha yesterday, cleared all three round robin matches beating M L Laxman of Karnataka 4-1, Hrithik Jain (Madhya Pradesh) 4-2 and S Shrikrishna (Tamil Nadu) 4-1 en route to his first ever national title.

The Delhi player, who advanced from the qualifiers, has lost only three frames in the meet ? two against Hrithik and one to Shrikrishna.

"I was confident of going all the way having defeated the top seed (Chadha) yesterday. I lost three frames today as I took time to get back my rhythm and seal the issue," Avinash, who aspires to don India colours, said.

There was a three-way tie among Jain, Laxman and Srikrishna as they finished second, third and fourth respectively on frames average.
