Abbas Khan, who died in Karachi, on January 27, 2002, aged 90, was a stalwart of Sind cricket in the decade before Partition, usually batting high in the order and sometimes keeping wicket. He also represented the Muslims in the inaugural Bombay Pentangular in 1937-38. His selection for India over New Year 1938, for the third unofficial Test against Lord Tennyson's MCC, was a high point, even if he scored only two and 13. A low came in 1947-48 when he captained Sind in the Ranji Trophy and Bombay won by an innings and 453 runs. In 29 first-class games, he scored 635 runs at 13.80 with a highest score of 84, took 18 catches and made 13 stumpings. He was a Pakistan selector in the 1960s.
