KARACHI (APP) Pakistan would be appearing in the 6-Red Ball World Snooker Championship being staged in India in September, a top official of the Pakistan Billiards and Snooker Association (PBSA) said on Thursday. We are awaiting final dates from the hosts Billiards and Snooker Association of India before finalising our plans, PBSA Chief Alamgir Shaikh said on his return from Bangkok (Thailand) where Pakistans Muhammad Sajjad lost in the last 32 round of Sangsom 6-Red World Championship. He said that the 6-Red World Snooker Championship would be held either in Pune or Goa and added that Muhammad Sajjad and Asjad Iqbal may be representing Pakistan in the Indian event. Alamgir said the PBSA was facing serious financial crisis in non release of Rs five million grant from the Pakistan Sports Board for holding the national circuit matches and participation in various international events including the Asian Games in China and the World Snooker Championship. He said that they had requested the PSB for hiring a foreign coach Sanjay Sawant of India. Sawant will be providing training and coaching to Pakistani cueists ahead of the Asian Games held in Guangzhou, China in November, he said. He said Pakistan cueists badly needed top class coaching to polish their skill and made them stronger in every department of the game. The PBSA President said that a training and coaching camp of players would also be conducted before the Asian Games and the World Championship. Alamgir said as per the PSB advise, they had submitted the details of the India coach to the ministry. He said due to hectic schedule, the planned 6-Red Ball five-nations event has been postponed and will be held some time in 2011. He informed that Pakistani cueists will also be taking part in the inaugural 6-Red Asian championship staged in Thailand in January 2011. He said due to lack of funds the third national ranking event has been put off and will be held after Eid-ul-Fitr. He said due to lack of support from PSB, PBSA was surviving from its own resources but it will be very difficult for them in coming weeks.
