Jansher accused of cheating

The world champion and top seed Jansher Khan of Pakistan beat Anthony Hill of Australia 15-7 17-15 14-15 15-8 yesterday to advance to the final of the Cathay Pacific Open in Hong Kong. Jansher, the defending champion, defeated Hill in 59 minutes at the Hong Kong Park Indoor Games Hall. The match was marred by an unsavoury incident in the third game when Hill called Jansher a "cheat" after the referee awarded a point to the Pakistani for a drop shot that Hill believed was out. "I don't like being called a cheat," Jansher said after the match. In the final Jansher plays the Australian Rodney Eyles, who defeated the fourth seed, Peter Nicol, of Scotland. Eyles, ranked second in the world, is confident of beating Jansher. "Jansher is not as fit as he used to be," he said.
