Ahmed Shehzad was dismissed for 34 in Lahore Lions’ chase of 136 against Mumbai Indians in the second qualifier match of the Champions League T20 2014 (CLT20) at Raipur on Saturday.

Jasprit Bumrah overstepped on the first ball of the fourth over. Jamshed got the opportunity to take the free-hit but he couldn’t capitalise on the wide full-toss and hit it straight to the cover fielder. Bumrah had bowled a good first over keeping the batsman guessing. Praveen Kumar too maintained a tidy line. The low target means that Lahore will be in no hurry to go for the big shots early on. But a strokeplayer like Shehzad wasn’t going to keep quiet for long.

Shehzad picked 10 runs off Lasith Malinga’s first over and followed up with two fours and a six in the next over.  Harbhajan Singh and Pragyan Ojha are bowling in tandem. But Shehzad tried to up the ante further and tried to loft Pragyan Ojha over wide long-on and was caught by Kieron Pollard.
