Manx snooker professional Darryl Hill has been handed a tough qualifying match for the China Open.

He will face world number one Mark Selby.

Qualification ties are being played in Barnsley this week.

However, the games involving defending champion Selby and the top two Chinese players have been carried over to the venue in Bejing.

The clash between world number 97 Hill and Selby will be the first played in the tournament which starts on Monday 28th March.

It will be the first time the Manx player will be on live international television - it will be screened on Eurosport.
