Lahore Badshahs into the Semis

The Lahore Badshahs entered the semi-finals of the ICL 20-20 Championship last night when they overcame the Chennai Superstars in a high scoring game.

Unlike last season when the Badshahs clean sweeped all opposition in the round games to qualify for the semis, this time round they lost a few matches in the beginning before bouncing back.

The lack of cricket for the Pakistani players before the ICL was blamed for the lacklustre performances when the tourament began.

But the Badshahs campaign soon caught up and they qualified for the semis ending the group stages with 5 wins and 3 losses, only behind the Hyderbabad Heroes in the points table.

The Heroes are the defending champions, who won the last tournament by beating the Badshahs in a bowl out in the 3rd final of a best of 3 finals series.

The Semi Final line up is:

Lahore Badshahs vs Chennai Superstars
Hyderabad Heroes vs Royal Bengal Tigers

The potential of a repeat of last year's final is very high and Inzamam's team would be looking for some sweet revenge this time round.

Tonight, the Badshahs and the Superstars go into a repeat performance of last night while the Heroes take on the Tiger tomorrow with the best of 3 finals starting from Thursday.
