Ahsan Ramzan reaches under 21 semi-final in Snooker Championship

On Tuesday in Tehran, Iran, during the quarterfinals of the U-21 Asian Snooker Championship, Pakistan’s rising star Ahsan Ramzan defeated India’s Digvijay Kadyan 4-3.

Ramzan advanced to the semifinals with a win over the Indian cueist.

The 17-year-old fought back from a three-to-two deficit to win the match with scores of 19-76, 36-76, 67-35, 63-31, 72-55, 27-65, and 9-70.

Ramzan’s gold in the Asian U-21 Championship is also guaranteed after making the semifinals.

Arshia Tehrani and Ali Lelegani of Iran were the opponents in Ramzan’s first two group matches, which he won to advance to the tournament’s knockout rounds.

The young man defeated Tehrani in the Best of Five of his opening group encounter, 3-0.

As the Pakistani dominated all three sets, Tehrani was humiliated. Ramzan trounced the Iranian in the second session with a score of 93-15 while winning the first frame by a margin of 55-21. He continued to dominate and easily won the third frame as well.

In the IBSF Snooker World Championship 2022, Ahsan, a young snooker sensation, stunned the world with his accuracy. He staged an incredible comeback against Iran’s Amir Sarkhosh in the final, coming back from 4-2 down to win 6-5 and become the second-youngest cueist to win the prestigious title.

In addition, Ahsan follows Muhammad Yousaf, who accomplished the feat in 1994, as the only other snooker player from Pakistan to win the international amateur world championship.

Ahsan has already won the national U17, U18, and U19 championships, and he placed second in the U21 competition.
