    BOMBAY GYMKHANA "PHANTOMS" SUPREME

    Bombay Gymkhana ‘Phantoms’ rallied from 0-2 to upset former champions P.J. Hindu Gymkhana ‘Oceans Seven’ in a 3-2 thriller to emerge champions in the BSAM World Zoroastrian Organisation Trust Mumbai Snooker League 2013, at the Dadar Parsee Colony Gymkhana. Winners in 2011, ‘Oceans Seven’ looked set to regain the title when Chirag Mehta and Ronnie Daruwalla won the opening doubles and former state junior champion Rovin D’Souza beat current state junior and sub junior champion Ishpreet Singh Chadha in the second singles that included an impressive yellow pot and a fluke brown. Playing the third singles, Siddharth Parikh reduced the margin before Chadha avenged his loss with a comfortable win over D’Souza in the crucial fourth singles to force the decider. Chadha ignored the earlier reverse and was on fire with impressive potting that earned him a break of 31 early in the tie and a 27 that ended prematurely when he missed a fairly simple blue pot in the centre. Parikh returned to face Daruwalla in the decider and hit significant breaks of 30 and 50 to take the contest away. 

    Player of the tournament: Rovin D’Souza (Oceans Seven)
    Highest break: Mahesh Jagdale (90, ECC ‘Bappachibum’)
    Most promising player: Ishpreet Singh Chadha (Bombay Gym ‘Phantoms’)


    Parikh wins black-ball decider

    Oceans Seven, Phantoms in final

    Seasoned Siddharth Parikh relied on a combination of fortune and skill to snatch a pulsating black-ball decider to lead Bombay Gymkhana ‘Phantoms’ into the final of the BSAM World Zoroastrian Organisation Trust Mumbai Snooker League 2013, at the Dadar Parsee Colony Gymkhana.Phantoms overcame a determined challenge from CCI ‘Rockets’ with a 3-2 win to set up a title clash with 2011 champions P.J. Hindu Gymkhana ‘Oceans Seven’ who prevailed over Elphinstone Cricket Club ‘Bappachibum’ 3-1 after dropping the opening singles tie. Ronnie Daruwalla won the second doubles tie along with Chirag Mehta and returned to win the crucial fourth singles tie for ‘Oceans Seven’, the only unbeaten team in the league. Himanshu Jain gave ‘Rockets’ a winning start by prevailing over Parikh in the opening singles and stunning state junior and sub junior champion Ishpreet Singh Chadha in the crucial fourth singles tie to force the decider, after ‘Phantoms’ surged to a 2-1 lead through Chadha in the second singles, and Rishabh Kumar and Vivek Wadhwa in the third doubles tie. Trailing 51-62 against former state champion Rishabh Pandya in the fifth and final tie, Parikh sunk in the pink with a brilliant long pot that set him up for the black and sealed the nail-biting win at 64-62. “Rishabh was enjoying a significant 20-point lead at one stage and I felt I was virtually out,” explained Parikh. “He was so focused and playing extremely well under pressure until he missed the brown. I think, that’s when my fortunes changed. The pink was not an easy pot as I had to position for the black off three cushions.”


    Phantoms, Rockets in semis
    Chadha snatches thrilling decider for Phantoms


    Bombay Gymkhana ‘Phantoms’ survived a scare before setting up a semi-final clash with CCI ‘Rockets’, in the BSAM World Zoroastrian Organisation Trust Mumbai Snooker League 2013, at the Dadar Parsee Colony Gymkhana. ‘Phantoms’ rallied from a 1-2 deficit to overcome a spirited Wodehouse Gymkhana ‘Woody Woodpeckers’ 3-2 in a thriller, while ‘Rockets’ halted the winning streak of Park Club ‘Samurais’ with a 3-1 win after surging to an early 2-0 lead in the quarter-finals. Playing with a +35 handicap, Mayur Sanghvi gave ‘Woodpeckers’ a dream start with a stunning win over state junior and sub junior champion Ishpreet Singh Chadha. Though ‘Phantoms’ drew level through Siddharth Parikh, a determined ‘Woodpeckers’ took the lead for the second time through Cyrus Aga and Mehernosh Patel who beat formidable doubles pair Chintan Jhaveri and Rishabh Kumar. But Woodpeckers’ challenge ended there as Parikh won the fourth singles tie with an 86-76 win over Sanghvi before Chadha made amends by snatching the decider against Burge Colabawala 109-103 in a riveting finish.


    ECC, Hindu Gym teams in semis
    D’Souza, Jain shine again


    Former champions P.J. Hindu Gymkhana ‘Oceans Seven’ and Elphinstone Cricket Club ‘Bappachibum’ registered contrasting wins to set up a semi-final clash, in the BSAM World Zoroastrian Organisation Trust Mumbai Snooker League 2013, at the Dadar Parsee Colony Gymkhana. The only unbeaten team in the league, ‘Oceans Seven’, winners in 2011, overcame Bombay Gymkhana ‘Wizards’ 3-1, while ECC ‘Bappachibum’ fashioned an exciting 3-2 win over last year’s semi-finalists Khar Gymkhana ‘Jaws’ in the quarter-finals. Former state junior champion Rovin D’Souza once again was the star for ‘Oceans Seven’ after winning both his singles ties. He first beat Kabil Badami in the opener and returned to prevail over the formidable Marzdi Kalyaniwala in the crucial fourth tie. After trailing 1-2, India No. 9 Faisal Khan snatched the crucial fourth singles tie for ‘Jaws’ with a comfortable win over Mahesh Jagdale to force the decider. Sunil Jain, who was Bappachibum’s star in the pre-quarter-finals, was their savior again when he beat Pawan Kohli for the second time in the match by winning the decider with impressive potting.


    Sapru snatches decider for ‘Samurais’

    Amit Sapru snatched the decider to help Park Club ‘Samurais’ fashion a thrilling 3-2 win over Shivaji Park Gymkhana ‘Magicians’ in the pre-quarter-finals of the BSAM World Zoroastrian Organisation Trust Mumbai Snooker League 2013, at the Dadar Parsee Colony Gymkhana. Shekhar Surve and Sanket Bapat gave ‘Magicians’ a good start by winning the opening doubles tie before a consistent Sanjeev Bijlani beat Prashant Mhatre in the following singles tie to draw level for ‘Samurais’.Sapru, playing with a +45 handicap, put ‘Samurais’ 2-1 up with a narrow 102-94 win over Dipendra Pinkyar, but Mhatre avenged his loss by prevailing over Bijlani 92-87 in the crucial fourth tie that ended in an exciting finish.Using his vast experience, Sapru comfortably overcame Pinkyar again in

But D’Souza found himself staring at defeat while trailing by a huge margin against an in-form Karan Chugh. Behind by a significant 40 points with only a solitary red and the colours remaining, D’Souza was offered hope when Chugh, leading 76-36, committed a foul. D’Souza seized the opportunity and took advantage of a free-ball to pot the red and the yellow.He went on to pot from green to blue to narrow the margin to 70-76, until Chugh needed just the pink for victory. Needing the pink and the black, D’Souza fired a stunning long and difficult pullback on the pink for a precise position on the black that was the shot of the day, and snatched the tie and match away at 83-76 in a dramatic finish. ‘Oceans Seven’ set up a quarter-final clash with Bombay Gymkhana ‘Wizards’ who beat MIG ‘Feathers’ 3-1, with Kabil Badami winning both his singles.

But Amandeep Kohli, who lost to Mayur Sanghvi in the opening singles tie, avenged his defeat by prevailing over Sanghvi in the crucial fourth singles tie to force the decider. Colabawala, playing with a +40 handicap, held on to a significant lead in the end to beat Deepak Khubchandani 112-86 in the fifth and final tie. ‘Woody Woodpeckers’ will meet Bombay Gymkhana ‘Phantoms’ in the quarter-finals. After Rahil Patel shocked state junior and sub junior champion Ishpreet Singh Chadha in the opening singles, ‘Phantoms’ rallied to beat Juhu Vile Parle Gymkhana ‘Achievers’ 3-1 with Siddharth Parikh winning both his singles ties to seal it for the winners.
