New Delhi - The Indian trio of Manan Chandra, Brijesh Damani and Alok Kumar thrashed Iran 3-0 to emerge champions in the inaugural Asian Team Snooker Championships held at Doha, in Qatar.

The Indian cueists were in red-hot form right from the start and topped their group with three wins from as many games. After the group stages, India were the only team to remain undefeated.

Pakistan, China and Thailand finished on top of their respective groups but suffered a defeat each. The final took place yesterday.

India had little obstruction in clinching gold as they outplayed Qatar 3-1 in the quarterfinals, beat Afghanistan 3-1 in the semifinals before registering a clean sweep against Iran scoring 61-49 (Single); 58-16 (Single); and 63-55 (double).
