Overview

The second semi-final clash of the Masters Champions League will be among the teams that finished second and third on the table. Both the Lions and the Super Kings have won three matches and share the same number of points, but Leo Lions' better net run rate saw them sit above Virgo Super Kings.

When the two clashed against each other in the group stages, it was the Virgo Super Kings' team who registered a victory over Leo Lions. It was an all-round performance from former Pakistan cricket Azhar Mahmood, that saw the Super Kings win, as he picked up two wickets and scored 48 runs while chasing a target of 147.
