KARACHI: President of the Pakistan Billiards and Snooker Federation (PBSF) Alamgir Shaikh on Tuesday hailed the sterling performance of cueist Mohammad Majid Ali in the 14th Asian under-21 snooker championship in Indore, India, on Sunday.

“Majid has reached a new high in his career and proved PBSF’s investment in juniors worthwhile,” he told Dawn on Tuesday.

Majid went down 5-6 to Thai cueist Noppon Saengkham in the grueling final.

He said the PBSF’s decision to give wildcard to four-five juniors in the national circuit was wise as it has started yielding fruitful results. Hamza Akbar’s winning national title and Majid’s feat in India are notable examples in this regard, he remarked.
