Though it was not much concern for Vidya as she won another frame to set decider.

After scoring 22 points in decider, Vidya gave a chance to Ng On Yee, which she converted into a break of 36 to take lead of 42-22. With 67 remaining on board, Vidya returned with a magnificent comeback but fall short by four points with score on board 54-50 in favour of Ng On Yee, which she later converted into her victory by potting the required pink. – PTI
