Despite a strike in the fifth frame, Fadhel suffered another split in the sixth which more or less, decided the match. Hussain rounded off a double to end the match with 205 while Fadhel posted the lowest game of the leg.
"I know I had made the finals with 3 good games but I didn't expect to have an easy match especially against a good bowler like Fadhel," said the 27-year-old champion. "This is a good present for me when I celebrate by 28th birthday next week in Manila.
"The ball I used in the first three matches was good but when the oil got carried down, I just didn't have anymore suitable ball to handle the lane condition," said the slightly disappointed Fadhel. "That's bowling and I'll look forward to another leg to try and win a title this year.
The inaugural Saudi leg was telecast LIVE on Saudi Sports Channel and highlights of the leg will be televised later on local television stations of the eight countries where the tour is being held.
