India’s cue ace Pankaj Advani has marked an achievement by winning a bronze medal at the prestigious Sangsom 6 Red Snooker World Championship after losing the semi-final to Chinese Ding Junhui in Bangkok on Friday.

In the quarterfinals, the Indian received a walkover from Michael Holt who withdrew due to personal reasons.

"Winning the first medal for India in this championship and with this level of competition means you have done well. I am an outsider in this tournament and coming this far feels very rewarding," Advani said of his performance.

"Ding is a phenomenal player. I got the better of him in the group stage but today he was the better player. I wish him best of luck for the finals."

Ding Junhui vs Pankaj Advani 7-4 (0-37, 68-0, 73-0, 41-26, 49-15, 7-57, 0-57, 67-0, 57-0, 20-34, 69-9)
