Well, a heartbreaker for the Tigers who were in it till the last over and Badshahs scrape through by just 7 runs. Spare a thought for Lance 'Zulu' Klusener who scored a pace setting 91 to end up on the losing side.

So, it would be Heroes taking on the might of Badshahs in a best of three finals.

Lance Klusener, has been awarded the Man of the match for his valiant 91

Join us tomorrow to see the third place play off and first of the three finals
