World #1 Mark Selby Crashes Out In Day One At The Crucible

Going for what would have been his third World Championship win in a row, the 'Jester from Leicester' Mark Selby has crashed out at the first hurdle.

Facing Joe Perry, Selby found himself 7-2 behind after this morning's first session.

Set for a best-of-19, Perry needed three frames to claim an unlikely win. The 43-year-old Perry, who has only one ranking win to his name, overcame any potential nerves and claimed a priceless 10-4 victory in this evening's session.

With Ronnie O'Sullivan also trailing 6-3 to Stephen Maguire, the World Snooker Championships have certainly started on an eventful note.

Having got as far as the semi-final ten years ago, Perry will surely take confidence from this most astonishing of scalps.
