Vikesh sets new National mark

Delhiite Vikesh not only broke the Nationals record set by Shabbir (1365 pins) on Monday by felling 1419 pins in a block of six games in long-oil condition, he also set an all-time Indian record, beating SA Hameed's 11-year-old mark of 1418 pins.

Hameed had set the record in the Mixed Team of 4 event in the Commonwealth Tenpin Bowling Championship in Scotland nine years ago.

In the process of breaking the record, Vikesh moved to first place with an average of 236.5, demoting Tamil Nadu’s Shabbir, who led after the first day, to second on 227.5. Karnataka’s Akaash Ashok Kumar is third with an average of 219.5.

Delhi’s Sarda felled a total of 1266 pins to stay fourth while Sarabhjeet Singh with 1266 pins was fifth. Round one action continues on Wednesday with the top-32 advancing to the next round.
