Saleh Mohammad Snoker Champion

Saleh Mohammad (born 24 February 1973  is a amateur snooker player. He reached the final of the IBSF World Snooker Championship in 2003 and won two medals at 2002 Asian Games.

Life and career
He was born in Afghanistan, and moved to Pakistan and represented the country as a snooker player. He turned pro in 1995, but lost his place after just one season. In 2003 he reached the final of the IBSF World Snooker Championship, by winning 14 consecutive matches, but 5–11 against Pankaj Advani.  At the cue sports competitions of the 2002 Asian Games he won two bronze medals in doubles and team category. At the 2008 ACBS Asian Snooker Championship Mohammad compiled a maximum break against Nguyen Nhat Thanh. At the end of the same year he decided to retire in protest, because he "couldn’t bear such injustice where cricketers were showered with cash awards on normal victories" and he "wasn’t given anything." 

In 2012 he decided to move back to Afghanistan, and represented the country at the 2012 ACBS Asian Snooker Championship, reaching the quarter-finals, and the 2012 Six-red World Championship, reaching the last 32.
