Vasai lad Laxman Rawat wins World 6Reds title in Myanmar
Laxman, who is a resident of Vasai, breezed to a 5-1 lead in the best-of-11 frames final
Mandalay (Myanmar): India's Laxman Rawat claimed the World 6Reds title after defeating former World snooker champion Muhammad Asif of Pakistan 6-5 here on Saturday. Laxman, who is a resident of Vasai, breezed to a 5-1 lead in the best-of-11 frames final, but Asif won next four frames to level scores, taking it into the decider.
Needing only a long blue pot to secure victory in the last frame, Asif missed it to complete a remarkable turnaround. Laxman fully capitalised on Asif's error and potted blue in centre and then pink in the top pocket to land perfectly on black.
En route to the final, Rawat defeated snooker ace Pankaj Advani 5-4 in the semi-final on Friday. Meanwhile, in the women's final, India's Amee Kamani ended up with a silver after losing to Nutcharat.
