Fans say ‘He Deserves More’ as the 24-time World Champion laments his lack of recognition in India.

Pankaj Advani won his 41st championship at the Asian 100 UP Billiards Championship 2022, defeating compatriot Dhruv Sitwala by six frames to win his eighth title. On Saturday, star Indian cueist Pankaj Advani won his 41st title by defeating compatriot Dhruv Sitwala by six frames to win the Asian 100 UP Billiards Championship 2022 for the eighth time. This was the 36-year-41st old’s international victory, a feat he claims took him years to acquire.

Following Advani’s historic success, some supporters turned to social media to point out that, despite his incredible achievements, he is one of India’s most underappreciated athletes. After he tweeted that his ’41st international’, supporters implored the 36-year-old not to dismiss his achievements.

Pankaj Advani won his 41st international title against compatriot and two-time Billards champion Dhruv Sitwala. Advani won the first frame before extending his lead to 2-0 with a flawless century break. When it came to the third frame, he quickly jumped out to an 84-14 lead, extending his lead to three frames to nil. He then resorted to the white pot at 87, where he was perfectly positioned for a red in-off the spot.

Sitwala, on the other hand, sought to battle back from that moment onwards, pulling one frame back after Advani missed a red early in the frame and coming up with an 82 break to cut the deficit in half. Sitwala’s comeback was short-lived, as Advani won the fifth frame to take a 4-1 lead before dominating the sixth frame.

In the seventh set, Sitwala took advantage of a rare miss by his compatriot to win the frame before Advani refocused and won the eighth frame. Despite Sitwala making a brilliant break in the eighth game, Advani managed to outclass his compatriot 6-2; such was the 36-year-domination old’s in winning his 41st international title. Given Advani’s incredible success as an Indian who continues to dominate the sport, fans will be hoping that the 36-year-old can bring the country even more glory in the future.
