DUBAI: Pakistan and Peshawar Zalmi speedster Hasan Ali, who ripped through Lahore Qalandars on Sunday with a four-wicket burst to lead his team to a fine victory, said taking South African wizard A.B. de Villiers’ wicket was like a dream coming true for him.

“The most important part of any good performance is to help your team to win and I am glad that we were able to beat Lahore Qalandars,” said Hasan. “I love to bowl fast and every wicket i take is big for me. But dismissing a player of de Villiers’ caliber was like a dream coming true for me and I am very happy with my performance.”

Peshawar Zalmi bounced back well after their defeat in the first match. “We did rea­lly well to bounce back after opening day defeat aga­inst Quetta Gladiators,” Hasan said. “Beating Lahore Qalandars has lifted out morale and we are looking forward to winning the upcoming matches.”
