MUMBAI: The Cricket Club of India will be felicitating ace cueist Pankaj Advani at a function to be held at the CCI's C.K. Nayudu Hall, here on Saturday.
Khel Ratna, Padmashree and Arjuna awardee Advani, only the second cueist after Malta's Paul Mifsud to win both the IBSF World billiards and snooker crowns, will be honoured for winning a remarkable 12 world titles.
Prior to the function scheduled for 8 p.m., Advani will conduct a clinic for a host of city's upcoming juniors from various clubs, at the CCI's Sir Wilson Jones Billiards Room.
"Pankaj is a phenomenon," said CCI president Kekoo Nicholson. "He is the perfect role model who has inspired a whole generation of players. He truly deserves this honour."
