With this mega event, international snooker returns to Pakistan after nearly five years. Pakistan Billiards and Snooker Association (PBSA) Chairman, Alamgir Shaikh thanked Jubilee Insurance for joining hands with the PBSA in hosting international snooker in the country by staging a 7-Nation international championship.
