Neil McKenzie is the Man of the Match for his crucial 46, here is what he says: "I thought Bodi and Alviro gave us a good stand upfront, we lost our way slightly and I felt we ended up 10 runs short. All our bowlers was superb, each one of those deserved the MoM award. It was very windy out there and we did well in the field. I think the bowlers deserve every bit of credit for there performance. We will play the finals in front of our home crowd and look to do well there."
Alviro Petersen, the victorious Lions Captain says: I thought 139 was a par score on this pitch. I wanted them to put up 90% effort and they nearly came around 85%. Morris was outstanding, he broke the vital stand. Neil's experience and his partnership with Gulam was very important. Our batting still needs to improve. Playing in the Wanderers is great, that too in a massive tournament like the CL T20."
Ross Taylor, the losing Delhi Daredevils Captain says: "We let ourselevs down in the field, probably gave away 20-25 runs extra. Credit to the Lions, the target was very gettable, they took early wickets and kept a lid on the things. We played only three games in the whole campaign and could not get our momentum going. We have the IPL coming up in the next few months and will look to do well."
Highveld Lions beat Delhi Daredevils by 22 runs to enter in the Finals of the CLT20 2012.
