New Delhi: Indian cueist Kamal Chawla continued his sizzling form on the green baize to book a semi- final berth in the Asian Snooker Championship being held in Al Fujairah in the United Arab Emirates.

On a super Friday, Chawla cued past Chen Zifan of China 4-2 in the pre-quarters and then outplayed Malaysian cueist Moh Keen Ho 5-3 in the last-8 encounter.

Chawla, who lost to Pankaj Advani in the snooker nationals this year, will now face Chuan Leong Thor of Malaysia in the semifinal clash.

The other Indian in the fray, Dharminder Lilly, however, could not get his name on the scoreboard, surrendering meekly to Chuan Leong Thor of Malaysia 0-4.

The winner of the event is eligible for a place on the Pro Tour for the next two seasons.
