BAKU: Pakistan’s tennis team led by Aqeel Khan-led  grabbed the top spot in Pool B, thanks to their 3-0 domination of Qatar in the Islamic Solidarity Games.

After Aqeel outplayed Shannan Mubarik Zayid 6-3, 6-4 and Abid Mushtaq defeated Shanan Muosa Zayed 7-6, 6-2, Abid and Muzammil Murtaza teamed up for the doubles rubber and brushed aside the pairing of Shanan and Abdullah Al Harrasi 6-1, 6-3.

The 3-0 sweep follows their earlier 2-1 and 3-0 triumphs over Azerbaijan and Jordan respectively.
