KARACHI: Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and Omar Associates were the only departments to scored first-round victories as inclement weather in northern parts of the country played havoc with the Patron’s Trophy Grade-II cricket tournament fixtures on Tuesday.

With Pool ‘A’ matches confined to Karachi and full day’s play guaranteed, it was inevitable teams playing here have more chance of winning than sides who are in action across the Sindh border.

On the final day of the three-day game at the UBL Sports Complex, CAA whipped Navy by nine wickets after spinner Mirza Ahsan Jamil captured six wickets in each innings to finish with match bag of 12-161.

Nasir Owais delayed the inevitable end-result with a defiant innings of 80 as the off-spinner thrashed 14 boundaries and hoisted a brace of sixes during his 64-ball knock.

At the SBP Sports Complex Omar Associates trounced Haideri Traders by 10 wickets. After dismissing Haideri Traders for 154 with slow left-armer Mohammad Irfan picking up five for 53 and match haul of nine, Omar Associates raced to a crushing win.

PIA openers Shahzar Mohammad and Agha Sabir achieved the rarest of all cricketing milestones by scoring century in each innings of the same fixture together.

In the drawn Pool ‘C’ encounter at the Diamond Club Ground in Islamabad, PIA extended their overnight second-innings score from 36-0 to 319 in 71 overs as Shahzar and Sabir added 285 in 63 overs of play possible.

Shahzar, who hit 157 in the first innings on Sunday, made 142 on this occasion with his 209-ball contribution including 11 fours and two sixes.

The left-handed Sabir, on the other hand, slammed 22 boundaries and a brace of sixes in making 169 from 223 deliveries to follow his effort of 104 kin the first innings.
