The world champion, Jansher Khan, has been banned from the British League for the rest of the year after being accused of not trying in a club match. Jansher was beaten 10-8, 9-0, 9-0 by the Scottish champion, Peter Nicol, in the third and final match of a semi-final play-off in April which his club, Welshback Wizards, had already lost to Cannons Club after Jansher's two team-mates were both defeated. He played again the following day, winning his third-place play-off match. Nicol is the only man to have beaten Jansher in tournament play in the last two years.
