Unlike the previous touring teams from India & Pakistan, the Karchi Gymkhana side took the games very seriously, and it is well reflected in the results. They, however had to work hard to most of their. They were specially lucky against Abahani. Needing only 3 runs from the last over, Abahani batsman, Akram Khan miscalculated the things, and took a single of the 1st devlivery, exposing tailender Anisur Rahman to the bowling. Anis failed to score a single run, and Abahnai lost the game by just 1 run. [1]
