Rilee happy his inning helps Gladiators get over the line

By our correspondent
LAHORE: Quetta Gladiators skipper Rilee Rossouw is very happy with the way his 34 not out helped his side getting over the line against Islamabad United on a tricky surface here at the Gaddafi Stadium Lahore on Thursday night.
“I am not particularly happy with the way I batted out there but to help the team getting over the line. I am pretty happy,” Rilee said.
He said it was difficult to read the pitch.
“It was difficult to read as we thought it would be a nice and high scoring game and we summed up the conditions nicely in the first innings with the ball and we knew that coming out to bat would not be so easy and we need to be really knuckled down,” said Rilee, who has replaced Sarfaraz Ahmed as skipper this season.
He said that captaincy helps him to focus more.
“I am loving it. It is getting the best out of me and I am much focused. I am really enjoying. The boys are following very well and so far so good and we are in a good space and good bubble,” Rilee said.
Islamabad United posted 138-9 and in reply Gladiators raced to the target with ten balls to spare after losing seven wickets in the process.
