Pakistanis prevail in Doha

Prospects of an all-Pakistani final of the al khaliji PSA challenger in Qatar were enhanced when Adil Maqbool joined his top-seeded compatriots Danish Atlas Khan and Farhan Zaman in the semi-finals after two rounds of play at the Khalifa International complex in Doha.

Top seed Khan was sorely tested though, needing the full five games and a 12/10 in the decider win over Egypt's Mazen Hesham Ga Sabry in an 82-minute quarter-final. He meets another Egyptian in the semis, Fares Dessouky who prevailed over fellow qualifier James Simpson in the quarters.

Second seed Zaman came through his two matches in less than an hour's combined playing time, but Maqbool had to come from two games down against Basem Makram to ensure an all-Pakistani semi-final.

Al Khaliji Bank supports Qatar Circuit

The third Qatar Circuit event features top seeds from Pakistan and a new sponsor ...

“This support from Al Khalij Commercial Bank (QSC) for the international squash tournament, taking place in Qatar for the second time, reflects our commitment in supporting both local and international sports activities, and to encourage the members of the community to get involved in sports as it positively impacts this and the future generation.”

Ms. Abeer Al Kalla
Head of Public Relations and Communications at al khaliji

"We are grateful to alkhaliji bank for their generous support of this event. Alkhaliji PSA squash challenger provides an opportunity to several national team players to improve their world ranking by means of earning world ranking points and to compete against some of the tough squash players in the world."
