After a 4-frame lead, Advani faced the threat of not achieving a whitewash victory as Santos raced to a 48-0 lead in the fifth frame. But Advani rose to the occasion and proved why he is one of the best in the business. The multiple world title holder ensured his opponent never got another chance, clearing the frame with a clinical 85 break, wrapping up the match in style. Advani will next face Pakistan's Asjad Iqbal in the round of 16.
