When an USA President watched a Test from the ground

The rather healthy-looking Intikhab Alam was summoned by Fazal Mahmood to bowl in the 1968-69 Test at Karachi, and he removed Colin McDonald with the first ball of his Test career. Though Fazal and Richie Benaud bowled very well and Hanif Mohammad scored a match-saving hundred, the Test was largely unspectacular.

Cricket fanatics, however, remember the Test for a different reason: Dwight Eisenhower was present at the ground during the Test, thus becoming the only United States of America (USA) President to watch a Test from the ground.
