Speaking after the win Sparsh said “The match was really good. I was playing very well and won the first two frames. In the fourth frame I lost by a big margin.  In the decider lot in a tactical battle I was leading. On the yellow, he needed three snooker and he was successful in the giving all the snookers. I had bad misscue actually and hit the black also. So, he came into the game and potted all the balls, but he missed a pink on the cushion and he left from the pocket.”
