Jaipur: Highveld Lions' seamer Sohail Tanvir cited lack of experience as the reason for his team's defeat at the hands of Rajasthan Royals and said the batsmen simply failed make any impact.
"We lack the experience. We are an inexperienced side and the youngsters are not used to playing under pressure and also in such atmosphere. Perhaps we gave the Royals 15-20 runs more," said Tanvir after Lions' 30-run loss to Royals in their Champions League T20 match here last night. (Scorecard)
"Moreover, Brad Hodge was picking everything we threw at him. It was fine innings and overall the hosts batted well, and the credit goes to them. They had few big overs but we didn't have any," he added.
