Debutant Shaik Abdul Hameed became India’s first-ever title winner at the Asian-level as he captured the Asian Bowling Federation’s Thailand tour event. Shaik defeated Mahmood Al Attar of UAE 242-183 in the final

Both the men’s title contenders had an opened frame each in frame two, but Shaik rolled three consecutive strikes to take a slender lead of 9 pins when Mahmood came back in the fifth and sixth frames. The Indian, however, rolled another three consecutive strikes from frame seven onwards while Mahmood’s form tapered off. Shaik went on to strike out for a comfortable victory over Mahmood. Earlier, Shaik edged Joshua Chow of HongKong in the first all-lefty semi-final, 231-218 to advance to the finals.

Shaik won India’s first-ever medal in the sport during the Commonwealth Tenpin Bowling Championship 2002 in which he won gold medals in Singles and Masters and a silver medal in All Events.
