In the first singles match, Asjad Iqbal faced a swift defeat. The second singles saw Owais Munir putting up a strong fight, but a foul on the brown ball during the crucial color potting phase allowed the Thai player to clear the frame.

The doubles match proved equally challenging for the Pakistani pair. Despite their best efforts, they were unable to stop the Thai team, who won with scores of 4-61, 53-75, and 26-90, clinching the championship.

Following their loss in the final, the Pakistani team took home the silver medal, adding to their impressive medal tally from the tournament. Pakistan had previously won a gold medal in the Asian 6 Red Ball Championship and both gold and silver medals in the Asian Under-21 Championship. Additionally, the team had secured a bronze medal in the 6 Red Ball event.

This year’s performance underscores the Pakistani team’s resilience and skill in the sport, promising a bright future in upcoming snooker tournaments.
