Andheri Recreation Club (ARC) ‘Cheetahs’ captain Karan Anand played responsibly and rose to the challenge by winning a crucial deciding frame, which secured his team a tight 3-2 against P.J. Hindu Gymkhana ‘Penguins’ in a tense round of 32 match of the GreatWhite Electricals-NSCI BSAM Mumbai Snooker League 2023, and played at the NSCI billiards hall, late Wednesday evening.

Meanwhile, defending champions Elphinstone CC ‘Elfies Stars’ marched closer towards the defence of their title as they comfortably defeated Islam Gymkhana ‘Top G’ 3-1 to advance to the next round.

Khar Gymkhana (KG) had a successful day, as KG ‘1 2 KA 4’ got the better of P.J. Hindu Gymkhana ‘Bird Wisers’ 3-1 and KG ‘Hustlers’ pulled off a narrow 3-2 win over Santacruz Gymkhana ‘Sunrisers’.

ARC ‘Cheetahs’ started with a flourish as Tarun Kalra (+45) easily defeated Yash Raiyaani (+50) 111-61 in the 15-Red first frame before Anand (+6) overcame a spirited fight from Hindu Gymkhana’s Uday Shah (+20) 57-40 in the 6-Red second frame. Hindu Gymkhana bounced back by winning the nest two frames. In the third 9-Red doubles Maulik Merchant and Karan Aggarwal (+33) combined well to overcome the ARC pair of Karan Advani and Om Sawant (+26) 79-66 and then Uday Shah (+50) defeated Tarun Karla (+45) 118-73 to level the match scores at 2-all.
