CLT20: Chris Morris speechless after `unbelievable` performance
Durban: Star of Highveld Lions` Champions League Twenty20 semifinal win over Delhi Daredevils, pacer Chris Morris said picking up two wickets at an economy rate of just 1.75 in a T20 game was "unbelievable".
Morris returned figures of 2 for seven in his four overs, getting rid of the dangerous duo of David Warner (21) and Kevin Pietersen (50). His effort was crucial in the Lions` 22-run triumph while defending 139 runs.
"It was just my day and the wicket was my type," said the little-known South African, who is yet to play a Test or ODI.
"I think bowling dot-balls is the key in T20 cricket. That`s what puts pressure on the batsmen and gets you a wicket. The more pressure you create, the more number of wickets you`ll get," he explained.
"I`m speechless at the moment. What an unbelievable day! The emotions that have gone into today`s game are just something else. I`m just happy that we`ve made it till the end."
Morris felt dismissing two of Delhi`s most dangerous batsmen "was not too bad".
"KP`s wicket was a lot sweeter since I`d dropped his catch," Morris said referring to the dropped catch off Jean Symes a couple of overs earlier.
