CL vs DJ, ICL, 2nd Semi: Chandigarh Lions enter ICL final
Dec 15, 2007Chandigarh Lions set up a summit clash with Chennai Superstars after skipper Chris Cairns and Andrew Hall helped the local favourites pip Delhi Jets by four wickets in a thrilling semi-final in Panchkula on Saturday.
Chasing a modest target of 149, the Lions pulled off the win in the final over with former South African all-rounder Hall hitting a boundary. Hall's knock of 20 came off just 11 balls while Cairns scored unbeaten 26 off 18 balls. With 48 needed in 32 balls, the former Kiwi all-rounder and Hall weaved an unbeaten partnership of 48 runs, which came off just 24 balls to see the side through.
Earlier, the Jets, riding on Syed Abbas Ali's quick-fire 57 (40b, 4x6) and Sudhindra's 22-ball 33, scored 148 for four wickets in their stipulated 20 overs. The late charge did not help much and the Jets had to pay for a turgid start with the first 10 yielding 60 runs.
