In fourth frame, they both put in all efforts for scoring shots, safety and planting snookers to counter each other. However, Joshua got a chance for colour clearance but it could only be pressure that after potting brilliant pink, he missed the simple black and match entered into the deciding frame.
Joshua took charge and started potting. Once again it appeared that he will be the winner but on a score of 51-18, a bad positioning curtailed him to score further and gave chance to Sanjaei.
