Wahab Riaz, Peshawar Captain: The wicket was great for batting as I mentioned in the toss, we capitalized in the powerplay and that took us to a good total. Haris has been the difference as he’s going big in the powerplay. The 19th over was important but I kept my belief. Getting Azam out made it easier. On peaking at the right time, this will take us further in the playoffs as this will give us confidence. Hope we can continue performing well there.
Asif Ali, Islamabad Captain: The pitch was great and the total was good but reachable. We started well but could not carry through. The death wickets were costly and led to the loss.
Mohammad Haris, POTM for his 70 (32): I try to apply pressure from ball one and go big in the powerplay. I premeditate sometimes but try to read what the bowler is doing based on the field placements. Peshawari players work hard and are, thus, successful.
