Hanzla Zahid 5-2 Gary Spencer
Hanzla Zahid produced some quality snooker to defeat Gary Spencer 5-2 in the last 16 of The Snooker TV Masters to set up a quarter-final clash with Wayne Martin.
Spencer won the first frame with the help of a 36 break but Zahid won the next to level the match. Zahid upped his game in the next two. A 44 in the third and a terrific 106 clearance in the fourth gave him a 3-1 lead and left Spencer feeling shell-shocked.
Zahid won the fifth with the help of a 41 break and he looked odds on to wrap up the match in the next but he broke down on a run of 42 and Spencer made him pay as he took the frame to make it 4-2. A few minor breaks from Zahid proved enough in the next to seal the win.
