JITEN Prasad will be out to maintain his number one status when he participates in the Paradise Beverages third National Snooker Rankings Championship A Grade division in Lautoka this weekend.

The Nausori Club player has been consistent this season winning the first two events.

A win in the third event will guarantee him the number one spot for the season and automatic entry to the Oceania Championship next year.

Jiten will face stiff competition from players such as second placed Praneel Singh, third placed Deepak Jai Ram and North West champion Mahend Deo.

Billiards and Snooker Association of Fiji secretary Raymond Reddy said formal dress code would apply for the tournament.

Reddy said they expect a minimum of 24 players in both the A and B Grades.

"A minimum of 24 players will enable pool play," he said.

'"The two top players from each pool will qualify for the eliminations. Jiten has a big gap at the top of the points table in the A Grade.

"In the B Grade, the battle will be between the brothers, Sahil and Rahil Prasad. Rahil has won the two previous events and has closed the gap on Sahil who is at the top of the points table having notched two victories last season."

Hazel Naidu of Labasa Club and Raman Lal of Defence Club will provide the challenge to the brothers.

The third National Rankings Championship will be played at the Lautoka Club and South Seas Club.
