Morne Morkel and Kagiso Rabada skittled Delhi Dynamos' top-order - reducing them to 30 for 4 before Fakhar Zaman and Chris Lynn saved face for them with a 97-run stand.
If it weren't for Fakhar Zaman's audacious knock alongside Chris Lynn's antics - Delhi Dynamos would've been in a far, far worse of a situation than they ended-up being in.

180 isn't a formidable total but with the calibre of bowling they possess and the conditions assisting their genre of attack - they might just be able to make a game of this.
Durban Lions' bowlers (pacers in particular) were all over Delhi Dynamos' batters. Apart from Fakhar Zaman and Chris Lynn - only Rashid Khan crossed into double-figures.

TIED - Basil Thampi dismisses Imran Tahir and claims the final wicket to tie the game. AB de Villiers is left stranded on 49* at the other end as he witness agony first-hand.
After a strong first-wicket stand between Quinton de Kock and Aiden Markram - the game seemed set for Durban Lions with them needing 84 runs with 10 wickets intact.

But what ensued next can only be described as pandemonium for Durban Lions - they lost 7 wickets for 41 runs within 9.0 overs before AB de Villiers resuscitated the chase.
Rashid Khan picked-up Kane Williamson and Dale Steyn dismissed the other three of Delhi Dynamos' top-four as the two knocked over their top-order after the initial stand.

AB de Villiers played a knock only he would be capable of - but to be left stranded at the other end with the scores tied as Basil Thampi dismissed Delhi Dynamos' No. 11.
Dale Steyn got the top-order after the initial stand but Basil Thampi's wickets in the middle-order and his dismissal of Imran Tahir to tie the game were truly - game changing.

Faf du Plessis' hundred powers Kolkata Exemplars to a respectable 304/5 - although Kolkata Exemplars will feel they fell 20-30 runs short with Asad Shafiq's snaillike knock.
Asad Shafiq and Sarfaraz Ahmed were unable to put their foot on the accelerator as the former (renowned for his slow scoring) could only accumulate 41 off 69 deliveries.

Perhaps sending a proven power-hitter like Faheem Ashraf, or a pinch hitter like Wahab Riaz above Asad Shafiq would've resulted in those extra 20-30 runs being achieved.
New South Wales Blues' bowlers faltered - Stuart Clark and Doug Bollinger went wicketless. Brett Lee, Moises Henriques and Steve O'Keefe only claimed a wicket each.

Nathan Bracken claimed two wickets but he was taken for runs - particularly by Faf du Plessis and Asad Shafiq. New South Wales Blues have an uphill task ahead of them.
Kolkata Exemplars definitely have the bowling power but New South Wales Blues are packed with match-winners, and in a knockout game - all it takes is one big knock.

David Warner's ton goes in vain as Kolkata Exemplars score a hefty 86-run victory over New South Wales Blues to march into the finals at Harare - awaiting their opponents.
Brendon McCullum was dismissed cheaply early on. All the brunt of laying a foundation fell on David Warner - and he excelled at it with a brilliant 120-ball 118-run knock.

New South Wales Blues failed to find a sustainable stand in the middle-order with Phillip Hughes, Steven Smith and Moises Henriques being dismissed after finding starts.
Man of the match from last game and captain - Simon Katich was run out for 1 by Asad Shafiq. All these dismissals mounted to New South Wales Blues being bowled-out.

Umesh Yadav was the only bowler to go wicketless for Kolkata Exemplars in what was a complete team effort - Faheem Ashraf was the pick of the bowlers with 3 victims.
New South Wales Blues crash out after showing great promise with two close victories. Kolkata Exemplars will face the winners of Durban Lions-Delhi Dynamos at Harare.

24 hours - one bowler, three batsmen.

Please select your S/O bowler, and three batsmen (in order - on-strike/non-striker/one-down).

Failure to post your lineup within 24 hours will result in auto-selection.

@Neptune @mohsin7827
ABD and Williamson, QDK one down. Rabada will bowl.

That was a pretty awful collapse, thought we had lost the game at first

Morne Morkel and Kagiso Rabada skittled Delhi Dynamos' top-order - reducing them to 30 for 4 before Fakhar Zaman and Chris Lynn saved face for them with a 97-run stand.
If it weren't for Fakhar Zaman's audacious knock alongside Chris Lynn's antics - Delhi Dynamos would've been in a far, far worse of a situation than they ended-up being in.

180 isn't a formidable total but with the calibre of bowling they possess and the conditions assisting their genre of attack - they might just be able to make a game of this.
Durban Lions' bowlers (pacers in particular) were all over Delhi Dynamos' batters. Apart from Fakhar Zaman and Chris Lynn - only Rashid Khan crossed into double-figures.

TIED - Basil Thampi dismisses Imran Tahir and claims the final wicket to tie the game. AB de Villiers is left stranded on 49* at the other end as he witness agony first-hand.
After a strong first-wicket stand between Quinton de Kock and Aiden Markram - the game seemed set for Durban Lions with them needing 84 runs with 10 wickets intact.

But what ensued next can only be described as pandemonium for Durban Lions - they lost 7 wickets for 41 runs within 9.0 overs before AB de Villiers resuscitated the chase.
Rashid Khan picked-up Kane Williamson and Dale Steyn dismissed the other three of Delhi Dynamos' top-four as the two knocked over their top-order after the initial stand.

AB de Villiers played a knock only he would be capable of - but to be left stranded at the other end with the scores tied as Basil Thampi dismissed Delhi Dynamos' No. 11.
Dale Steyn got the top-order after the initial stand but Basil Thampi's wickets in the middle-order and his dismissal of Imran Tahir to tie the game were truly - game changing.

Dale Steyn has delivered an absolutely incredible Super Over - he gave one run away in the first four balls and dismissed Kane Williamson - what a swansong he's having.
Quinton de Kock's four on the second last delivery salvaged Durban Lions somewhat - but having just 6 runs to defend in the Super Over is not an ideal situation to be in.

Boundary each from Chris Lynn and Fakhar Zaman secures the win as Delhi Dynamos advance to the final at Harare - Kagiso Rabada couldn't imitate Dale Steyn's brilliance.
Kagiso Rabada needed to pick-up wickets but bowling a wayward one on the very second delivery released all pressure as Fakhar Zaman latched onto it and made him pay.

With 2 runs required off 3 deliveries - Kagiso Rabada bowled another poor delivery, missing his length completely and Chris Lynn went for the big shot which he connected.
After two completely one-sided wins - Durban Lions crash out after a Super Over as Delhi Dynamos advance to the final and set-up an IndoPak Premier League encounter.

Faheem Ashraf played an all-timer to rescue his team from a spot of bother and gave them a fighting total after they were reduced to 137/6 before he came out to bat.
Rashid Khan went on a rampage on Kolkata Exemplars and claimed a 4-fer in his first 4.0 overs to completely dismantle their innings and subdue their openers' fiery start.

He completed his 5-wicket haul in his final over after having taken some beating from Faheem Ashraf - the left-hander would later go on to score 76 and remain unbeaten.
Faheem Ashraf's pivotal knock saved Kolkata Exemplars from completely stinking up the game and gave their bowlers somewhat of a fighting total to defend in the final.

Dale Steyn was Delhi Dynamos' trump card coming into the final - but he was taken to the cleaners by Shikhar Dhawan in his first spell. He claimed one scalp in the game.
Kolkata Exemplars openers were brilliant but their middle-order crumbled completely to Rashid Khan - if it weren't for Faheem Ashraf, the final would've been over by now.
