Farhan started the match on high pace and went on to take the first game 11-5. Farhan continued his superb form in the second too where he proved a bit harsh and outclass Waqar by 11-3. In the third game, Farhan started toying with his brother and allowed him to play his game and when the score was drawn at 9-9, Farhan once again showed the glimpses of his game and easily won the third and decisive game 11-9 to register the title victory.

The final clash was witnessed by squash legends Jahangir Khan and Gogi Allauddin while Punjab Squash Association (PSA) president AmjadNoon Malik, secretary Shiraz Saleem, vice president admin Tariq Rana, treasurer M Mansoor, squash lovers and players families.

Farooq Shahid also lauded the sterling performance of Farhan Mehboob and hoped he would continue serving the country at national and international level.

Squash legend Jahangir Khan, while speaking on the occasion, said: “We have trying to provide fresh and promising squash talent to the country through our academies, and we have been moving towards right direction. The time is not so far, when the young talent will emerge at higher level and start winning laurels for the country.”

Lauding the support of FMC for the promotion of squash, Jahangir said: “We direly needed sponsors like FMC which have been serving this game for the last four to five years and if the corporate sector will start supporting squash, we will soon succeed in regaining our lost squash glory. The government should also pay attention towards squash as if the game is taken care properly and provided with proper funds, it is our promise this game will help the country in earning laurels at the international level.”

Mehboob brothers also thanked the FMC and Punjab Squash Association for providing them a platform where they have exhibited their prowess and managed to win the first two positions. “The Punjab Squash Association and FMC have made excellent arrangements for conducting the events and it was really a remarkable event for us. This was for the second time this year, we brothers faced each other in the final. We are very glad our performances and hope to improve it further to win more and more laurels for us as well as for the country.”
