Snooker: Yasin Merchant, Shivam Arora guide 'Avengers' to victory
Former two-time Asian Champion Yasin Merchant and Shivam Arora made light of their low handicaps and produced winning performances to guide KG Avengers to 3-2 and 3-1 (home & away) victories against MG Trend Followers in Section-L during the second week of the PJHG Global Ocean Group-Mumbai Snooker League.
In the home fixture, Avengers trailed 1-2 before Arora and Merchant won the next two frames defeating Ramesh GS 98-63 and Ghadge 93-58 respectively to clinch the match 3-2. In the away tie, Arora lost the opening frame to Ghadge. But, in the second frame the vastly experienced Merchant quite comfortably overcame Dhaval Kenia 72-62 to level scores.
