Mumbai Indians vs Lahore Lions CLT20 2014 2nd Qualifier match: Lions need 26 runs from 18 balls

Sep 13, 2014

Mumbai Indians came back really strongly in the middle overs against Lahore Lions. Lions are struggling as they lost four wickets quickly which shifted the momentum to the other side. Pragyan Ojha and Harbhajan Singh have really bowled well to restrict the Lions’ batsmen. They still need 26 runs from 18 balls. Skipper Mohammad Hafeez got out in the last over and Kieron Pollard took the wicket. It was a good slower ball from Pollard and Michael Hussey took a good catch. Umar Akmal is still out there at the crease. The required run rate has gone above nine runs an over.

Earlier, Mumbai Indians spinners were helping the team claw back in the game. Pragyan Ojha dismissed Saad Nasim to leave Lahore Lions at needing another 54 runs in the second qualifier match of the Champions League T20 2014 (CLT20) at Raipur on Saturday.

Jamshed was taking the responsibility of scoring briskly as Lahore Lions are cruising along at in chase of 136. But Jamshed was stumped by keeper Aditya Tare off Harbhajan Singh’s bowling after scoring 26. Before Jamshed Ahmed Shehzad was scoring well. But both openers will have to blame themselves for gifting their wicket away.

Shehzad tried to play an expansive lofted shot despite having scored at a good rate while Jamshed decided to set off for a run without noticing the ball was just right in front of the keeper.
