Raipur, Sep 17: Lahore Lions skipper Mohammed Hafeez is glad that he could play a match-winning knock in a crucial game against Southern Express in the Champions League T20 (CLT20) tournament, on Tuesday (September 16). Lions qualified for the main draw after Mumbai Indians lost to Northern Knights.
"I think the victory was much needed. To be honest you all knew how important it was. We wanted to set a good total early. After losing three wickets, we were bit under pressure because we wanted to set a target and put pressure to the chasing side. The one over (from Prasanna) changed the complexion of the game.
"Someone had to take the responsibility, whoever have played that someone has to do that thanks to almighty that was me," Hafeez said at the post match press conference.
Hafeez, who was adjudged man of the match, added, "We wanted to bat early. We have a good bowling side. It was blessing in disguise we lost the toss. Even though we would have won the toss, we wanted to bat first."
