“It’s great to get triple figures. I love playing in the day, but it was important to get to that semi-finals after five years of trying. It was difficult (playing in an empty stadium) but you have to create your own energy when fielding. We got some momentum with the bat and just kept it going. Obviously, I love opening. Some days it comes off, other days it doesn’t. I have played quite a bit in the subcontinent. Quite a bit in the IPL, but first time in Pakistan. My team-mates are awesome. They have given me a lot of support, and getting some wins under the belt is good,” said Chris Lynn after the match.
“We had confidence in our players, and credit goes to the management for never giving up. The first 14-15 overs were outstanding, but we bowled poorly at the death. We have a couple of days to set these things right. We hope to play positive cricket (against Karachi in the semis) and keep up with this positive momentum that we have built up,” Lahore Qulander’s captain Sohail Akhtar said after the match
