If she suc­ceeds again she could find her­self with a quar­ter-fi­nal with Madi­son Keys, the 21-year-old Amer­i­can who re­cently reached the world’s top 20 for the first time.—AFP KARACHI —A bril­liant all­round show from Kam­ran Ghu­lam guided Dubai Is­lamic Bank’s (DIB) 31-run win against Bank Is­lami (BI) in 29th Agha Khan Gymkhana (AKG) Ramzan Cricket Fes­ti­val here on Sun­day at AKG.
