Faisalabad vs Kandurata, Qualifying Pool 1, Champions League T20 2013

Commentary

Faisalabad won by 10 runs | Faisalabad Vs Kandurata Live Score, Qualifying Pool 1

That ends the first match for today. Do join us for the second in a few minutes....
Misbah: 'Today we can smile. We have to believe that we can perform well on the bigger stage. We can do better than this. Our batting was disappointing. Every team in Pakistan is plagued with batting issues. The bowling is the bright spot while the spinners have kept things tight. Samiullah and Asad Ali have bowled well. Ehsan Adil has been a big positive for us.'
Misbah-ul-Haq is the MoM for his wonderful unbeaten 93.
Thirimanne: 'We have not played to our potential. We had a good chance of winning today but we could not be consistent. 147 was a chaseable total but the batting did not click.'
Faisalabad go over the line in their final match of the qualifiers. They have to thank Misbah for scoring a brilliant 93 not out and scoring 195 runs in the series. Their bowlers backed them today, everybody chipping in to restrict Kandurata. For Kandurata, they never really got going as they kept losing wickets at regulat intervals. They end up at the bottom of the table and go home without a win.
