It was a disappointing end to India’s campaign in the International Championship as Pankaj Advani and Aditya Mehta bowed out of the major ranking snooker event, losing their first round matches here.

Mehta lost 6-3 to England’s Rod Lawler, who top-scored with 103, while eight-time World champion Advani, who suffered a food poisoning attack just minutes before his opening game, was beaten by Englishman Dave Harold 6-4 in the $950,000 event.
