Reigning Asian champion Aditya Mehta has become the first Indian cueist in 25 years to register a perfect break of 147, the maximum one can achieve in snooker.

The professional player stepped into the 147 club and joined Geet Sethi, who was the first to achieve the feat back in 1988.

“Mehta, recorded the landmark break in the ongoing selection camp at Bangalore in the fourth frame against Brijesh Damani (IOC),” a release stated.

Incidentally, 25 years back, Sethi also registered the break in the fourth frame against an Indian opponent Nasir Latif of Kerala. In both the matches, referees overlooking the proceedings were from Karnataka State Billiards Association.

In 1988, G.R. Ranganathan was the match official while M. K Sharma was the referee during Mehta’s match.PTI
