This boy to rewrite China snooker history
Updated: 2004-04-06 09:23

Ding Junhui, rising Chinese snooker prodigy, has broken through into the top 32 at the ongoing 2004 Players Championship in Glasgow, Scotland.

The 17-year-old knocked out the world ranked 29th, Englishman Ma rk Selby, 5-4 Sunday to advance.

Losing the opener, Ding Junhui counter-attacked and the game went to the deciding frame which he clinched from the rival who beat him at the 2002 China Open.

It's the first time that a player from the Chinese mainland has made it to the top 32 in a world-level snooker tour.

Ding will take on another Englishman Paul Hunter, current world number four, in next game Wednesday.
