Had Lahore Lions earned a victory over Dolphins through a big margin, the scenario would have been totally different. However, it’s still not over for them yet as they still hold a chance to qualify for the semis. All they need to do, is to inflict a big victory over Perth Scorchers. Being already out of the contention for the semi-final spot, Scorchers would look to finish off their CLT20 innings this year on a high and they could well turn out to be the party-spoiler for Lahore Lions by ruining their chances of qualifying as well. Lions, currently on a net run-rate of +0.255 need to beat Perth by 47 runs or with 33 balls to spare in order to better CSK’s current net run-rate.
