Al Joaker bounced back from an earlier setback with 4-0 whitewash of Iraq’s Ali Hussain Ali in his second game.

Shehab put on a fine show to rout Mohsen Aziz of Qatar 4-1 in his first match the same night and made up to an extent for the dejection suffered by team-mate Al Joaker on Friday night.

The upshot has rekindled Al Joaker’s hopes of marching through to the knockout last 16 stage of the 23-nation tournament. Earlier, Al Joaker was edged 3-4 by Fung Kwok Wai of Hong Kong in his opening Group D match on Friday night.

Given the strength of players drawn in Group D for the first round, round robin battles, Al Joaker’s has his work cut out for himself.
