India failed to defend the men’s team title at the IBSF Snooker World Cup, losing 1-3 to arch rival Pakistan in the summit clash here Tuesday.

India started badly as Pakistan won the first two frames and looked on course for a whitewash in the final before the pair of Pankaj Advani and Laxman Rawat made a comeback to win the third frame and stay in the contest.

But it was not to be as Pakistan won the fourth frame to deny India back to back crowns.
