Jaipur: His all-round performance gave Otago a thrilling win over Lions but New Zealand's James Neesham admitted he was under pressure after being hit for boundaries in the Super Over in their Champions League Twenty20 match on Sunday.

Neesham said he was confident that his team will come on top of the Lions after they managed to tie the match but the four and a six in the first two balls in the one-over eliminator put him under pressure.

"We knew before going for the super over that we would come on top," said Neesham, who hit 52 off 25 balls and bowled superbly in Super Over to help his team post a thrilling victory over Highveld Lions.
