IBSF Women’s Snooker World Championship

Indian cueist Vidya Pillai came second at the IBSF World Women’s Snooker Championship on Thursday in Antalya, Turkey. In the league match, the 44-year-old lost to Belgium’s Wendy Jans 3-4; the Indian had not lost a single match in the entire Turkish championship.

Pillai, who came into the league game without losing a single game in the competition, struggled early on, losing the first frame 19-63. The Indian, on the other hand, recovered strongly and took the next two frames. With the score tied at 4-4, the Belgian left no room for error in the next frame.

After that came the most competitive setting of the match, which Vidya Pillai won 64-52 to take a 3-2 lead. The Indian struggled as Wendy Jans triumphed in the final two frames to successfully defend her World Championship title with just one frame remaining.

Vidya Pillai’s defeat made her the second Indian woman to place second in the IBSF World Women’s Snooker Championship. Amee Kamani had also placed second to Wendy Jans in 2016. The world snooker champions have never been Indian women.

However, in the Masters Division Final, Wales’ Darren Morgan beat India’s Manan Chandra. Chandra had won the opening frame of the final, 63-52, but things quickly got worse for the Indian. He eventually lost 3-5.
