KARACHI Bunker busting bowling from Karachi Blues pace duo of Muhammad Sami and Tanveer Ahmed skittled a strong Habib Bank batting line up for 66 in second innings and steered their team to big 141 in victory in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy five-day final which ended shortly after lunch on the third day here Wednesday at the National stadium. This is for the 19th time that Karachi had won the coveted national cricket champions trophy since it was established half a century ago. Muhammad Sami, who will be leaving some time on Thursday for Australia to join the Pakistan pace battery in the Boxing day opening Test against Australia at Melbourne, ripped through Habib Bank second innings with a six for 38 runs while Tanveer Ahmed took four for 27 as the bankers needing a low winning total of 208 run to clinch national cricket title shockingly threw in the towel. Karachi Blues scored 215 in the first innings and Habib Bank had responded with 195. Karachi Blues once again fumbled in the second innings to manage just 187 in the second innings. Karachis handy 20 first innings lead proved decisive in the final count. Karachi Blues won Rs 100,000 as winners purse while Habib Bank took Rs 50,000. Muhammad Sami and Tanveer Ahmed shared players of the final award. Asad Shafique (Karachi Blues) was adjudged the best batsman of the competition and Tanveer Ahmed of Karachi Blues, the best bowler. Wapdas Ahmed Said emerged as the best wicket-taker and Hasan Raza of Habib Bank as the best fielder. Each award carried got Rs 50,000. Big names like Younus Khan, Taufique Umar, Hasan Raza and Salim Elahi failed to rise to the challenge and surrendered meekly without putting up a fight which may have shocked the team officials who had already started counting chickens when Karachi faltered in the second innings. There was no discipline in Habib Bank batting and its senior players made irresponsible stroke that caused their fall. The discipline in Habib Bank team was so low that the skipper of the team Hasan Raza and opener Taufique Umar were appearing in a private TV sports talk show till midnight whereas they should have been in their beds by ten in the night to be fresh for the expected fight they had on their hand on Wednesday morning. The way Muhammad Sami bowled Taufique Umar for 13 in the morning showed that the opener could not concentrate on his batting. Similarly Hasan Raza, who was leading the bankers in the presence of Younus Khan, played a self destructing shot. Younus Khan edged Muhammad Sami. Younus Khan trying to stage a come back into Pakistan team has scored just 11 runs in this crucial match. However, the credit should to Karachi Blues captain Muhammad Sami who delivered when it was most needed. Muhammad Samis call to the Australia has attracted some criticism but his bowling would silence his critics. When the play resumed on the crucial third day, the situation for Karachi Blues was grim. They had already lost nine of its second inning wickets for 175. A lot depended on left handed Asim Kamal who was at the crease with 49 and Azam Hussain. They were expected to shore up teams total with some good responsible batting. Batting under the morning heavy condition was always difficult on a winter day at the National stadium. The ball seam and swing under the heavier condition. The pair lasted 31 balls and added 12 runs to the overnight total before Azam Hussain fell leg before to Irfan Fazil for seven. Asim Kamal remained unbeaten 50. There were high expectations in Habib Bank dressing room and there was buzz that it would be like a morning walk for the bankers to reach the winning total. However, little they knew that Muhammad Sami would emerge as demolition in chief for their team. Muhammad Sami removed both the openers Taufique Umar and Salim Elahi cheaply to make Habib Bank two down for 33. It was a great set back for the bankers to lose first innings century maker Taufique Umar. Now the hopes for the Habib Bank hinged on Younus Khan and Hasan Raza but they were also dismissed cheaply. It looked as if Habib Bank was in a hurry to lose the final. As the wickets fell, the pressure on Habib Bank increased and gave Muhammad Sami and Tanveer Ahmed more heart to bowl at a faster speed.
