London, Feb 10 (IANS) English snooker star Ronnie O’Sullivan has confirmed he will play in next week’s Welsh Open in Cardiff.

The world ranking event runs from February 15 to 21 at the Motorpoint Arena with 128 players battling for the trophy, reports Xinhua.

O’Sullivan was drawn to play Barry Pinches in the first round next Monday while world No.1 Mark Selby will take on Welshman Duane Jones.
