JITEN Prasad maintained his number one status after winning the Paradise Beverages second National Snooker Rankings Championship A Grade division at the Lautoka Club on Sunday.

He defeated Pritesh Khatri 4-1 in the final. Interestingly both players hail from the Sam Super Pool Club.

In the semi-final, Jiten downed Tony Cen while Khatri beat veteran Ali Hussein.

Brothers Rahil and Sahil Prasad faced off in the B Grade final. Rahil defeated the younger Sahil 3-1.

In the semi-final Rahil beat Raman Lal while Sahil defeated Francis Ram.

Billiards and Snooker Association president Praveen Maharaj said they completed the tournament on time despite playing extra matches on Sunday.

Maharaj said Jiten showed good potting skills against Khatri.

"Jiten was our best performer at the Oceania Championship in Australia last month and continues his fine form in the rankings event," he said.

"In the B Grade, the bothers Rahil and Sahil impressed. They have been practising together daily and proved themselves at the tournament.

"We are grateful to Paradise Beverages for all the support."

The third National Rankings Championship will also be played in Lautoka. South Seas Club will be the main venue. The competition will be held from July 12-13.
