Chhattisgarh Warriors lost the first match against Red Carpet Delhi on Saturday but Munaf was still happy with the team’s performance.”Today’s game was really good.They posted a total of 255 and we scored 233.We lost by 22 runs.The pitch was favoring the batter and we wanted to stop them at 210-215 but they were able to score more.It was a good game.”

The former India pacer is loving his stint in the IVPL here in Greater Noida.”I love the game and I don’t know anything else.It’s really fun to meet my old friends.It’s exciting in that sense that it’s given us all the opportunity to come together,” he signed off.
