Sajjad saved the match on time

Muhammad Sajjad - Pakistan Muhammad Sajjad - Pakistan IBSF Media

Muhammad Sajjad saved his match on time before it could enter into a decider. He won the first three frames against Ehsan Heydari Nezhad and made clearance of 69 in third frame. Ehsan pulled back two by crafting good clearance breaks in both the frames (36 and 71) before Sajjad sealed the match in last two successful visits of sixth frame.

The sixth frame was very important for Sajjad. If the frame would have slipped from his hands, it could be anybody's game in the decider. With that thought, Sajjad capitalized the first opportunity which he got on last two available reds and went for a clearance. However, he missed on the brown but did not wait much and in next visit potted the same followed by remaining colours to close the proceedings 4-2.

Sajjad, in group M, has won 3 matches he played so far and already qualified for knockout stage.
