    A scintillating display of batting from Sydney Roosters has seen them end up with a 292-run total on a fast-bowler's track in the Semi-Final of Champions League.
    However, it was Virat Kohli's incredible 66-ball 91 in particular that stole the limelight away from Shane Watson and Joe Root's watchful, substantial fifties.

    Scoring a total of 292 on a bowler-friendly Multan wicket is no joke. If any batting line was going to achieve such feat, it was probably going to be Sydney Roosters.
    With Shaheen Afridi being subdued, and Mohammad Hasnain being taken to the cleaners, it was an unsatisfactory performance from Quetta to say the least.

    Muhammad Musa was the only ray of light for Quetta Gladiators with 3 major wickets to his name, the three most-important wickets of Watson, Kohli and Root.
    This score is going to take some chasing from Quetta Gladiators. They've definitely got the players to make it happen, but it will not come so easily for them.

    Victory for Sydney Roosters! An incredible 76-run thumping over Quetta Gladiators has paved the way for Sydney to go straight into the final of Champions League.
    A complete bowling performance topped by Hasan Ali's 3 for 33 comprehensively restricted Quetta Gladiators below the 293-run target set by Sydney Roosters.

    Kane Richardson dismissing both the openers - Abid Ali and David Warner, in the space of two overs in his first spell jolted Quetta Gladiators early on in their chase.
    Eoin Morgan picked-up the slack and tried to rejuvenate Quetta's run-chase, but wickets kept tumbling at the other end until Marcus Stoinis came out to bat at 6.

    Quetta Gladiators' captain - Sarfaraz Ahmed could not lead from the front and was dismissed cheaply. Morgan-Stoinis partnership was brought to an end as well.
    Quetta's tail gave way and crumbled despite some resistance from Shaheen Afridi, as Sydney won by a margin of 76 runs and qualified for the final of CLX8.

    That Kohli innings was incredible
    We managed to get 100+ runs in last 10 overs which swung the game in our favour
    And our pacers managed to pick up regular wickets

    AB de Villiers, take a bow! An extravagant knock of 142, accompanied by Faf du Plessis' 89 has taken Durban Lions to 307/5 in the all-important CLX8 Semi-Final.
    After losing Aiden Markram in the first over, Quinton de Kock and Kane Williamson became overprotective and started playing to save wickets instead of score runs.

    Shaheen Afridi removed Quinton de Kock in the 6th over to reduce Durban Lions to 21 for 2. Faf du Plessis, the new man in, wasted no time in letting loose.
    Faf du Plessis raced to 33 from just 17 deliveries until he lost his partner - Kane Williamson at the other end. Kane Williamson perished after a stilted 22-ball 8.

    AB de Villiers and Faf du Plessis added a mammoth 176-run stand for the 4th-wicket. du Plessis reached fifty, whereas de Villiers reached his fifty and his hundred.
    Both batsmen slowed down towards the latter part of the innings as the outfield started to wear out, and Rajasthan Royals' bowlers tightened their lines and lengths.

    Navdeep Saini and Shaheen Afridi were uncharacteristically expensive in full 10.0 overs, but this was sure to be expected against a batting line of Durban's calibre.
    With Kagiso Rabada and Imran Tahir missing from the lineup, Rajasthan Royals' bowling looked shot. Washington Sundar was relatively economical in his 10.0.

    This was a run-chase for the ages! David Warner and MS Dhoni have made a 308-run target look like child's play with their breathtaking, unbeaten, twin hundreds.
    Rajasthan Royals have toppled Durban Lions in the second Semi-Final and booked their place against Sydney Roosters in the final of CLX8 at the National Stadium.

    308 turned out to be insufficient, even though at one point they were reduced to 11/2 as Dwaine Pretorius dismissed Nitish Rana and Martin Guptill in one over.
    Ankit Bawne and David Warner brought life back into the chase with a formidable 92-run stand for the 3rd-wicket where Ankit Bawne achieved his 50 from 50 balls.

    Shortly after he achieved his fifty, a direct throw from Chris Morris ran Ankit Bawne short of the crease, providing Durban Lions with a much-needed breakthrough.
    Little did they know the shimmer of light would quickly be taken away from them when the new man - MS Dhoni and well-settled David Warner would let loose.

    An incredible 207-run stand to follow the Bawne-Warner partnership between Dhoni and Warner took Rajasthan Royals over the finish line, and into the final.
    Both batsmen achieved hundreds in a partnership that made Durban look completely clueless. Pretorius' 2-wicket over turned to be the only positive for Durban.

    A dream chase that and who better than Warner and MSD to do it with their respective hundreds! Special indeed.

    What a moment this is to see two of my most dearest teams make it to the final of the pinnacle of the leagues here at PC. When this league began, I imagined a Rajasthan v Sydney final and here it is! As much as I love Sydney but here I am with Rajsthan and Sydney is just another team against whom we got to win the final to lift the glorious trophy. Hopefully we do just that on the day of the final.

    One more game to go guys, one more. Who would have imagined this after we lost 5 on the trot in the IODC at the start. We believed in ourselves then and we do the same now. Let's win this!

    I like to back my players and hence the same XI which has been so impressive for us from a long long time. David Warner averaged just about 17 before that special hundred in the semi final. Now Nitish Rana has had a quite Champions league so far but he has done great for us at #3. Let's do this team, let's win it. Bengaluru Bulls are the only Indian team to win the CL so far, let's have another Indian team up there. We are up against a strong team but we have never had anything easy. One final time, let's play the best cricket we can!

    Shane Watson departs! The plan worked for Shaheen Afridi. Making the ball go away, only to bring it back in on the last delivery has earned him a big wicket.
    Rajasthan Royals are off to a great start with the early dismissal of Shane Watson. Sydney Roosters seem to be on the back foot as a result of Watson's dismissal.

    Steve Smith's flurry has put Sydney Roosters on top, with him scoring a quickfire 41 from just 25 deliveries to take his team's total to 71 for 1 at the end of 10.0.
    Although Tim Paine looks quite rigid at the other end. After having faced 27 balls, he's only hit one four. Royals will be looking at an opening by dismissing him.

    Fifty for Steve Smith! Sydney's starry batting line was always going to be under the spotlight in the big finale, and their most consistent performer has delivered.
    Steve Smith already has two hundreds to his name in four games, four in six if you consider the preseason games. Can he score one more, in the final of CLX8?

    Breakthrough! Washington Sundar has provided Rajasthan Royals a much-needed breather and dismissed Steve Smith before he could cause irreparable damage.

    This has been a forgetful but somehow necessary innings from Tim Paine. 60 deliveries faced and only 28 runs scored on a batting track at the National Stadium.
    MS Dhoni and his men have contained Tim Paine to the absolute detriment of the opposition, which is far more impressive if they had just dismissed him cheaply.

    38 runs scored in the last 10.0 overs by Sydney Roosters. Rajasthan Royals have absolutely cornered Sydney Roosters in the middle overs with their two spinners.
    Washington Sundar has been the more economical of the two, with Steve Smith's wicket already to his name. This has been a rather Paine-staking innings.

    Fifty for Virat Kohli. Excellent near run-a-ball knock from Sydney's number four. He has kept the scoreboard ticking which has not been the case for his partner.

    Ravindra Jadeja breaks through! Tim Paine is out, stumped by the lightning quick MS Dhoni. His 91-ball 40 might not have been pleasing to see, but it was vital.
    With Virat Kohli already well-set, and Joe Root & Ben Stokes to come out next, Sydney Roosters have got to be eying a massive total with the start they have.

    Major wicket! Virat Kohli goes! Sydney Roosters seem to be losing their way as the pressure built up in the middle overs is finally paying off for Rajasthan Royals.
    Sydney Roosters really need to pump the gas paddle, because the current run rate they are going at is easily achievable on a batsmen-friendly pitch like this.

    52 runs in the last 10.0 overs, and the loss of Virat Kohli's wicket. The run rate has gone up relatively, but it's still unimpressive and potentially detrimental.

    Expensive 16-run over brings up Ben Stokes' fifty! An excellent late cameo is pushing his team to a very good total. How much more can he gather in 4.0 overs?
    Navdeep Saini is the only proper bowler with overs left, so the other end is going to be bowled completely by a part-timer, which can be exploited terribly...

    Big wicket! This will put a dent in Sydney Roosters' progress. Ben Stokes perishes after a 39-ball 56 that included 12 fours! He has done his job for his team.
    With 9 balls remaining, how much can Rajasthan Royals' scale back? Sydney Roosters are currently 288/5, they will at least push to get past the 300-run mark.

    Joe Root reaches his fifty. A well-paced innings, he took control of the wheel when it was needed, but also let his partners at the other end have authority.

    A good final over from Navdeep Saini, only 5 runs coming from it. He conceded 16 runs in an over from Ben Stokes but made an unbelievable comeback after that.
    Dismissing Ben Stokes in a wicket-maiden to follow up, then delivering the final over of the innings where he bowled four back-to-back dot balls to Joe Root.

    However, Nitish Rana's spell, and his last two overs in particular caused a lot of damage to Rajasthan Royals. His 3.0 overs went for 41, and his last 2.0 for 30.
    Joe Root and Ben Stokes squeezed 73 runs from the last 7.0 overs with both batsmen reaching their fifties. Joe Root remained unbeaten on 63 off 60 deliveries.

    Sydney Roosters have piled-up 307 in the final of Champions League X8. Steve Smith, Virat Kohli, Joe Root and Ben Stokes all scored fifties for Sydney Roosters.
    The star-studded middle-order lived up to its hype even if none of them could go big, they all contributed with excellent and very different innings to amass 307.

    Steve Smith's quickfire fifty after Shane Watson's early dismissal settled the ship for Sydney Roosters with Tim Paine taking the other end hostage by force.
    Virat Kohli's fifty after Steve Smith's dismissal kept the scoreboard ticking as Rajasthan Royals managed to squeeze Sydney Roosters in the middle overs completely.

    Ben Stokes and Joe Root's 104-run stand provided Sydney Roosters with an excellent comeback in the last few overs to give their team a late bloom to pass 300.
    Even on a batsman's wicket, a 308-run target is going to be a tough score for any team to chase down if for nothing but the pressure of the Champions League final.

    Navdeep Saini has to be the pick of the bowlers for his superb death-bowling. The only mistake MS Dhoni made was to not include a proper sixth bowler in the XI.
    The lack of which cost them 41 runs in 3.0 overs, even if he had gone run-an-over, they would've ended with a score of 285 - a perfectly on-par, achievable target.
