Division B World Scrabble C'ship

Pakistan second year in a row won division b title of the World Scrabble Championship.

Daniyal Sanaullah won the final against compatriot Taha Mirza 3-1.

The B division proved more exciting after the favourites Hadi twins of Pakistan suffered shock defeats in the semifinals but the backup players from Pakistan proved good enough to carry the national flag.

Daniyal earned second position in junior World Scrabble Championship. 13 years old Syed Ammad Ali became youngest to win junior world champion and first Pakistani to qualify for quarterfinals of World Scrabble Championship.
