4th July, Doha: Overnight first series leader, Annop Arromsaranon of Thailand topped the squad to win Squad C High-Series award of the H.H. Emir Cup 2022 and move into second in the overall standings.

Arromsaranon, the second Asian to win a PBA-WBT title at the 2018 Busan Cup, had a moderate start in the seventh game of his second 6-games series with 206. Despite improving with 220 in the eighth game, he lost the lead to compatriot and 31st SEA Games Singles silver medallist, Yannaphon Larpapharat.

When Lapapharat suffered two low games of 161 and 167, Arromsaranon regained the lead with 193 and 226. The leader then ended his second series with 226 and 212 for a 12-game total of 2628 which moved him into second overall, 51 pins behind leader and Squad A winner, Yousef Al-Jabir of Qatar with 2679.

Lapapharat finished second, 101 pins behind the leader on 2527 and making the top 6 bracket in sixth position. Two-time first runner-up of the H.H. Emir Cup, Naif Oqab of UAE finished strongly to snatch third spot in this squad with 2512.

Oqab headed the second bracket in seventh position with 2512 followed by Manuwong in eighth. Mohammed Al-Saud of Saudi Arabia occupied the last spot in 38th position with 2118.
