Following the game, a very happy Haris Rauf while praising his team’s performance and his franchise i.e. Lahore Qalandars said, “I want to thank Allah. The team fielded very well and supported the bowlers. The fans supported us throughout and helped us to this win. I’ve been playing here for two years. We support each other and discuss our plans with each other. That gives us confidence and support. Guptill’s dismissal was the key one. They were building momentum at that time. I just want to thank Lahore Qalandars, too, who supported me a lot. They’re the reason I’m here.”
