    MB’s Shooters are BPL champs

     

    MB’s Shooters beat Race for Gold, The Team 3-1 to emerge champions, in the inaugural Videocon Billiards Premier League, organized by the Billiards & Snooker Association of Maharashtra, at the Bombay Gymkhana. 

    Vishal Madan gave Shooters a dream start with a shock 100-94 win over World Team Championship gold medallist and former Asian champion Devendra Joshi, in a riveting opening singles tie that gave the best-of-five championship round an explosive start. Doubles pair Marzban Ambroliwala and Rovin D’Souza pulled one back for Race for Gold with another close win over Mehernosh Billimoria and Shekhar Krishnan to raise hopes of a tight finish.

    But Amit Sapru gave Shooters the lead again with a convincing 100-28 win over Rohan Jambusaria before twice world runner-up and World Team Championship silver medallist and man-in-form with eight century breaks Dhruv Sitwala sealed the issue with an exciting win over Ronnie Daruwala in the crucial fourth singles tie.

    Shooters earned the winners’ prize of Rs. 1.25 lakh, while Race for Gold received Rs. 90,000.

    “I believe the verdict was out when I lost the opening tie itself,” explained Race for Gold captain Devendra Joshi. “Ronnie had his chances and he needed a big break. But playing under pressure and against a player of Dhruv’s calibre is a difficult task.”

    “Initially we were tied at 65-all and the game was in Ronnie’s favour at one stage,” said Shooters’ star Dhruv Sitwala. “But I relied on consistent breaks of 50 to close in towards my target. Apart from me, Vishal and Amit also made a significant contribution towards our team’s success by raising the level of their games and winning crucial ties.” 

    Results: Final: MB’s Shooters bt Race for Gold, The Team 3-1 (Vishal Madan bt Devendra Joshi 100-94; Mehernosh Billimoria/Shekhar Krishnan lost to Marzban Ambroliwala/Rovin D’Souza 91-100; Amit Sapru bt Rohan Jambusaria 100-28; Dhruv Sitwala bt Ronnie Daruwala 100 (87,60)-59.

    And now, a Billiards Premier League

     

    And now, India gets a Billiards Premier League. The inaugural Videocon Billiards Premier League, organized by the Billiards & Snooker Association of Maharashtra, will be held in Mumbai from August 16 to 24.

    Ten formidable teams, comprising the crème de la crème of Indian billiards exponents, will feature in the week long extravaganza that will be held at six clubs across South Mumbai that are the hub of cue sports.

    The winning team will receive the top prize of 1.25 lakh, while the runners-up will receive Rs. 90,000. In addition, the team finishing third will earn Rs. 60,000 and the fourth placed will receive Rs. 50,000.

    “This is a sincere attempt to revive billiards which has been overshadowed by snooker and other cue sports over the years,” explained Derek Sippy, BSAM honorary joint secretary. “Billiards already has a formidable reputation of producing amateur and professional world champions Wilson Jones, Michael Ferreira, Geet Sethi and Pankaj Advani. But we realised that players at large were drifting away from billiards owing to various reasons.”

    Sippy added: “Apart from the national championships, we do have the state selection tournament and other billiards competitions organized under the auspices of BSAM that keep the sport alive. But there was a need to do much more. This is one of the first steps to prevent billiards from reaching the abyss. Apart from the administrators the players also realised the danger, and the beauty is they themselves are involved in the effort, which in turn reflects their passion for the beautiful game.”

    The tournament – of the players, by the players, for the players – has attracted the country’s star cueists who are specialists in the three-ball game.

    Nine teams, backed by various sponsors, are owned by former and current amateur players who feature on the domestic circuit, with Shivaji Park Gymkhana being the only club to own a team.

    The 10 Teams are: Tigers (owned by Bharat Mehta); RK’s 7, The Rakish Kings (Rishabh Kumar); SPG Billiards Punters (Shivaji Park Gymkhana); MB’s Shooters (Mehernosh Billimoria); RRockets (Raajeev Sharma); SK’s Kannon Masters (Sanju Kothari); Scorpions (Sanjiv Bijlani); Race for Gold, The Team (Gurjit Dhingra); WJ Genii(Shyam Kotak) and S.P. Young Guns (Prashant Mhatre).

    The Format: Each team will have seven players, selected by the owners from a pool through lots, who have been given handicaps based on recent form. The 10 teams will play a best-of-five round robin that will include singles (100-up) and doubles ties. The top four that aggregate the maximum points will qualify for the best-of-seven frames play-off.

    In the play-off, the leading team will play the second placed in the 1st Qualifier and the winner of this tie will qualify for the final. The winner of the Eliminator match between the third and fourth placed teams will next face the loser of the 1st Qualifier where the winner of this 2nd Qualifier tie will enter the final.

    The billiards league is the latest addition to the growing number of leagues in the country following the Indian Premier (cricket) League, Indian Badminton League, Hockey India League, Indian Super (football) League, Pro Kabaddi League and Mahesh Bhupathi’s and Vijay Amritraj’s tennis leagues.
