Southern Express vs Lahore Lions, 5th Qualification Match in CLT20: Aizaz Cheema rattles Southern Express

Sep 16, 2014

Southern Express were 27 for the loss of two wickets while chasing a target of 165 against Lahore Lions in the fifth qualification match of Champions League Twenty 20 (CLT20) at Raipur on Tuesday. Tillakaratne Sampath was batting on 17, and Jehan Mubarak was batting on zero. SE had made a steady start to the chase, until Aizaz Cheema dismissed Kusal Perera and Danushka Gunathilaka in consecutive deliveries in the fourth over.

Both teams put  up ordinary performances in their previous match, though in different departments. The Lions were bundled out for 98, and no batsman except for Saad Nasim (who scored 58) managed to get their score into double figures. On the other hand, Southern Express put up a decent show with the bat, but failed miserably with the ball as Lendl Simmons and Michael Hussey combined beautifully to put up a match-winning opening stand of 139.
