Port Elizabeth: Victoria skipper David Hussey said a slow start and failure to execute their plans cost them their match against Warriors in the Champions League Twenty20 tournament.

"We started slow, didn`t we? We need to regroup and play our game in Jo`burg. We didn`t execute our skills well, but full credit to Warriors," David Hussey said after his team suffered a 28-run defeat to Warriors.

His counterpart and Man-of-the-match Davey Jacobs said 159 was always a difficult target to achieve and his bowlers backed him well.

"We are very happy with the win. We always knew anything around 160 would be a difficult target but still we needed to bowl a few good overs and we just did that. Crowd is always with the band, so it`s fun. I am sure there will be a big crowd in on Saturday," he said.

Jacobs took two stunning catches to contribute to the win, apart from scoring a 39-ball 59.

Asked which one was better between the two catches, Jacobs said, "Yeah, the second catch was a bit of a TV thing, the first one was better."
