Karachi, May 20 (ANI): Pakistan off spinner Saeed Ajmal has still not been able to get over the smashing that middle order Australian batsman Michael Hussey gave him during the final over of the second semi-final of the ICC World T20 Championship in Caribbean, as he has vowed to give Hussey a fitting reply the next time both teams meet.
Ajmal said he would never forget the last over in which Hussey clobbered him all around the Beausejour Stadium, St Lucia hitting 18 runs therby winning the game and ensuring a berth in the final of the tournament.
“I don’t know what happened because I was confident I would not let them score 18 runs in the final over but it was just my bad day and Hussey’s day. He played the innings of his life.But I’m confident that I’ll take his wicket the next time we play against Australia,” The News quoted Ajmal, as saying.
Meanwhile, veteran all rounder Abdul Razzaq said that being over-confident after posting a huge total of 191 runs, was one of the prime reasons behind Pakistan’s loss against Australia.
“We relaxed a bit too early against Australia.But overall our performance was good because the players backed each other and there was unity in the team.” Razzaq said. (ANI)
