Sep 16, 2014

Lahore Lions were 52 for three at the end of 8 overs in the fifth qualification match of Champions League Twenty 20 (CLT20) against Southern Express at Raipur on Sunday. Mohammad Hafeez was batting on 1, and Saad Nasim was batting on 0. LL had made a strong start, but were rattled by 3 quick wickets by Farveez Maharoof.

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 for Mumbai Indians.
