Richard Saldanha

Richard Saldanha was the runner-up of Series 39.

He qualified for the series quarter finals with 6 wins, including a top score of 73 against David Parfitt. Saldanha beat Nick Buttle and Terry Knowles on his way to the final against Kate Ogilvie, and lost against her by just two points, 83 – 81.

Saldanha was not invited back to the Championship of Champions X due to it being a shorter tournament than usual, but was later invited back for a special rematch against his series winner.

Richard Saldanha is the younger brother of Allan, the runner-up of both Series 15 and 33.
