To be honest, I was very sure the CPL tournament would be a success because the crowd here is very passionate about cricket," said Hafeez on Tuesday.<br /> <br /> "The crowd response to the whole tournament has been exceptional. We saw that, and I personally believe the tournament will get more and more success."<br /> <br /> Hafeez said his departure ahead of the business end of the tournament left him with a bitter-sweet feeling after having a thoroughly enjoyable time as part of a successful squad.<br /> <br /> He signed off with a spectacular display of high-class hitting to dump the Hawksbills out of the competition, blasting two fours and four sixes in his swansong match for the season.<br /> <br /> "I am definitely sad to be leaving and I am going to miss it but international duties always come first," he said.<br /> <br /> "I was happy to join and in the same way I am happy that I am leaving on a happy note. The [<a href="/tags/Guyana-Amazon-Warriors/post" target="_blank">Guyana Amazon Warriors</a>] team is a very good one, the franchise is good and the teammates are happy and supporting each other."<br /> <br /> The two semi-finals take place Thursday and Friday, and the final will be Saturday in Trinidad.
