CareerEdit

AmateurEdit

 
2014 Paul Hunter Classic

In 2011 Sharav won the Pontins "Star of the Future" event aged 19 beating fellow Scotsman Ross Muir 4–0 in the final in Prestatyn. A few months later as an amateur, Sharav reached the last 16 stage of his tournament debut in the Players Tour Championship, beating professionals, Liang Wenbo 4–0, Adam Duffy 4–1 and Gary Wilson 4–2, before a 4–0 defeat to Marcus Campbell.[1] He then entered Q School in 2014, with the aim to win a two-year professional tour card.[1] He was unsuccessful, losing in the final rounds of both events to Tian Pengfei and Michael Leslie.[1] He was though able to enter in all of the ranking tournaments as a top-up player for the 2014/2015 season due to his strong Q School performances. He qualified for the venue stages of the 2014 International Championship and 2015 Indian Open, losing in the first round of both.[2][3] He then entered Q School at the end of the season.[1]

ProfessionalEdit

In the first event of Q School, Sharav reached the final round and made breaks of 103 and 83 and against Adam Duffy and won 4–3, a win which gave Sharav to a two-year card to the World Snooker Tour for the 2015/2016 season and 2016/2017 seasons.[4][1] He won a match as a professional at the first attempt by beating Andrew Milliard 5–3 in the 2015 Australian Goldfields Open qualifiers. .[5] Sharav could not qualify for any ranking event in the 2015/2016 season outside of the UK Championship and Welsh Open for which he gained automatic entry. At the UK he came back from 5–2 behind against Alan McManus to level at 5–5. Sharav got the snooker he needed in the decider, but McManus potted the blue to win in a match that finished at 1:30am.[6] At the Welsh Open he lost 4–2 to Jack Lisowski in the first round.[5]

A 4–1 win over Sean O'Sullivan saw Sharav qualify for the 2016 Indian Open where he was defeated 4–0 by Stuart Carrington. He overcame Nigel Bond 6–3 to play in the International Championship and lost 6–3 to John Higgins in the first round. Sharav eliminated Oliver Lines 4–1 in the first round of both the Northern Ireland Open and the Welsh Open, but was then eliminated in the second round 4–0 by Yan Bingtao and 4–1 by Robert Milkins respectively.[7] Sharav qualified for the China Open by overcoming Jamie Jones 5–3 and whitewashed Ross Muir 5–0 in the first round, before being unable to pick up a frame in a 5–0 loss to Judd Trump.[8] Sharav finished the year outside the top 64 in the world rankings, but has secured a new tour card by taking the seventh spot out of eight on the one-year ranking list.[9]
