Imad Wasim | Karachi Kings captain: We should’ve won the first couple of games. All the games we’ve won, we’ve won by big margins. Positives are that the youngsters proved themselves. We gelled together despite being out the tournament and we played for the pride of Karachi. It’s very frustrating, game awareness is key in T20 cricket. The way we played cricket throughout the tournament was fantastic. Captaincy puts a lot of pressure especially when your side is losing. Selecting the playing XI is very difficult, we had so many injuries as well. Our focus is to give opportunities to emerging talent. One thing we lacked was game awareness, about when to attack and when to defend. My performance was okay but if the team is not winning it doesn’t matter. It’s a team game so yes, I’m doing well personally but it doesn’t matter. Hopefully we can come back and do well next year.
Mohammad Akhlaq | Player of the match: I felt very special when I was told I will be playing today. Tayyub and I figured that the wicket was quite difficult today so we decided to play our natural game. I learnt a lot of things this season.
David Wiese | Lahore Qalandars captain: That wasn’t our best performance. Disappointing to come out here and not give the crowd a good performance. It’s a more fair contest here compared to Pindi. You don’t stand a chance there as a bowler. Over here the wicket is more conducive to better cricket. Just a better cricket wicket in general. We were just 10-15% off today. Was a different feel with Shaheen not out there leading us. Definitely looking forward to the playoffs, we worked hard to finish in the top two. Pretty sure it’s going to be a sellout. Want to come out in the next game and do the fans justice.
Imran Tahir: Always nice to finish like this when you have a tough campaign. We badly needed it to be honest. I need to be in the playing XI to do that (celebration) but I didn’t get many opportunities, Shamsi was fantastic. It’s been tough for the bowlers. In Karachi we had tough conditions – dewish. Not my favourite season this year. Want to thank all the people who came in to support. Really grateful. I hope they enjoy the cricket. Couple of things coming up – I’ll be playing for Guyana, that’s my main focus. Want to do something special for the people in Guyana.
