POST MATCH REACTION

Lancashire bowler Farveev Maharoof told BBC Radio Manchester:

"That was a perfect game. The bowling, fielding and batting, we just outplayed them.

"Twenty20 is all about momentum, and we've got it and want to keep it up.

"He [Junaid Khan] is bowling really well since he came across. He's been very effective by keeping things simple and my role and his role are pretty much the same.
