Hafeez: Feeling very good. Boys played very well and the management motivated us. Mohsin has always been performing well. Bats and bowls well. Management makes us practise catching, so we took our catches.
Rijal: Little disappointed. Tamang batted well. Same thing happened with the bat again. We couldn’t survive.
This match started off as being a fifth place playoff semifinal but it soon turned into a Hasan Mohsin spectacle. With his side reeling at 30/3, he came in and pulled out one of the finest knocks of the tournament, scored with the ease and pace of your kebab-gobbling outing. Then he struck with the new ball. Four times to banana Nepal out of the match, if at all they were ever in. The Nepali batsmen, perhaps too intimidated by the target, came out swinging to only reiterate their rawness and the Pakistani bowling lineup pounced on it to deny them even a sniff. Late order fight from Tamang and co. but it was never going to give them a win.
Mohsin: I always want to score runs. Happy for the performance. I am a batting allrounder but I bowl well with the new ball. So the captain bowled me. Manager boosted my confidence. Yesterday’s game disappointed but as a professional, you have your ups and downs. This is not the end of the world.
Hasan Mohsin is the Man of the Match
