KARACHI In a rare display of sustained hostile bowling, Karachi Blues pacer Tanveer Ahmed ripped through the first innings of Habib Bank bagging five wickets to help his team turn the tables on the opponents on the opening day of the five-day final of Quaid-e-Azam Trophy here Monday at the National stadium. Former Pakistan captain Younus Khan of Habib Bank hoping to stage a come back in national cricket fell cheaply to pacer Tariq Haroon who had the Test campaigner leg before wicket for just seven. Tanveer Ahmed finished the day with five for 51 in just 13 eventful overs that saw the bankers lose wickets in a fast forward fashion and Tariq Haroon got two for 2 that included the prized scalp of Younus Khan. Habib Bank was 95 for seven in response to Karachi Blues poor 215 in the first innings at close of the days play. Seventeen wickets fell on the opening day of the contest raising fears that the match may not go the full five-day distance. When play began under mild benevolent winter sun under azure sky, Karachi Blues captain Muhammad Sami chose to bat first on fresh wickets with the hope that teams batting would do well against an ordinary Habib Bank attack. However, after a good start the home innings crumbled against spinners in which Abdur Rehman took four for 52 and Aslam Qureshi took two for 32. Younus Khan bowling at medium pace grabbed two for eight runs. Karachis opener Shahzaib Hasan was the lone home batsman who crossed the half century mark. Scoring at a brisk pace Shahzaib Hasan played 67 balls and hitting eleven four reached 67 before he was caught by Younus Khan off Abdur Rehman. Asim Kamal contributed 34 and Wajihuddin 29. It was their fifth wicket partnership of 51 runs that enabled Karachi Blues past the 200 run mark, otherwise the home innings would have folded at much lower total. Tanveer Ahmed added 20 runs in 28 balls hitting four fours. It was a valuable contribution to Karachi Blues total. When Karachi Blues innings ended just before tea interval question were asked about Muhammad Samis decision to bat first. Karachi Blues had better bowlers in its fold and if Habib Bank would have been sent in first Karachi may have ended with a bigger advantage. However, Tanveer Ahmed with his superb bowling feat vindicated his captain. Tanveer started the route by removing opener Salim Elahi getting the batsman leg before for eight. His next victim was Aftab Khan who scored 14. His third victim Kamran Hussain left without scoring. When Tanveer Ahmed came back for his second bowling spell, he accounted for the wicket of Abdur Rehman and Hummayun Farhat. Pacer Tariq Haroon played a perfect foil to Tanveer and took two for six runs. His biggest wicket was that of Younus Khan when he surprised the senior Test campaigner with a ball that caught the batsman plumb in front of the wicket. Younus played just 14 balls and hit one four to disappoint a handful of supporters who had specially come to see him in action. Habib Bank opener Taufiq Umar was the only batsman who stood alone valiantly. He is still at the crease with unbeaten 36. The other not out batsman is Irfan Fazil with four. It would be miracle if Habib Bank with the remaining three wickets in hand would be able to challenge Karachi Blues bowlers when play resume for the second day on Tuesday. Karachi Blues look all sat to take a big first innings lead which will help them gain a grip over the final.
