ISLAMABAD - Hamza Akbar crashed out of the Betferd World Championship Qualifier 2016, after he suffered 3-10 defeat against British Ian Burns in the second round match played on Monday.

Hamza, Pakistan’s lone professional snooker player, who is currently Asian snooker champion, displayed quality snooker, but could not match the experience and accuracy of the top British player.

Hamza, who is facing acute shortage of funds due to non-fulfillment of the promises made by IPC Ministry and the PSB and still awaiting to get his promised reward money get cleared, has made several requests to IPC minister Mian Riaz Hussain Pirzada, who is least bothered about helping the youngster and future of Pakistan snooker. Hamza was simply outclassed in the first frame losing it 103-1. He lost the second frame 64-20, but bounced back to win the third frame 94-19 playing 50 break. But he again lost in the fourth frame 1-93 because of Ian’ 54 break. Hamza also lost the fifth game 26-58 with Ian playing 51 break and also lost the sixth frame 29-75.

He tried to make a comeback and also succeeded by winning the seventh frame 68-6, but then he kept on losing the eight frame 0-84, ninth frame 70-1, 10th frame 70-36. Hamza though won the 11th frame 75-17 yet lost the 12th frame 7-76 and the 13th and last frame of the game 44-71 to crash out of the event.
