    Pakistani cueist Muhammad Asif won his second world title after beating Philippines player Jefrey Roda 8-5 in the final of IBSF World Snooker Championship 2019 played in Turkey’s Antalya on Saturday.

    Asif had won his first world title in 2012 at Bulgaria. His rival Roda also secured any medal for his country after a gap of 27 years.

    The Pakistani cueist looked on track to bag an easy victory after winning first three frames in quick succession. However, the Philippines player made a strong comeback with a century break of 105 in the fourth frame, according to the match report on IBSF’s official website.

    Both players then won four frames each to reach 7-5 before entering into the crucial 13th frame, in which Roda fought hard but Asif held his nerve to come on top of his opponent and won the match 8-5.
