Indian world billiards' champion Pankaj Advani's shock win over Shaun Murphy in snooker's Welsh Open on Tuesday led to the Englishman facing accusations he'd deliberately lost the match.
Murphy, the 2005 snooker world champion, was beaten 4-3 by Advani in Newport, south Wales, with the Indian playing on the senior professional snooker circuit for the first time this season.
Murphy received a Twitter message Tuesday night, from a user whose account appeared to have been deleted subsequently, saying: "Rumours going round you match fixed tonights game Shaun??? Any truth??"
