Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

Knights set up a final clash with Cape Cobras as they crushed Lions by eight wickets in the semi-final at Wanderers. Lions were kept down to 148 for 5 after choosing to bat, and Reeza Hendricks and Rilee Rossouw ensured the target was hunted down inside 18 overs.

Hendricks and Rossouw's second-wicket partnership was worth 115 in just 13 overs. Rossouw cracked 58 off 42 deliveries before falling at the doorstep of victory with five runs needed.

Hendricks ended the match next ball after Rossouw's exit with a six over the deep cover boundary off Lonwabo Tsotsobe. Hendricks also blitzed eight fours in his unbeaten 74 off 53.

Kagiso Rabada conceded only 13 runs off three overs but the rest of the Lions attack could not contain Hendricks and Rossouw. In contrast, Andre Russell was the only Knights bowler to take some punishment as he went for 44 in his four overs.

Lions were 64 for 2 in 8.1 overs but could not push on from there and lacked a strong finish. The highest score for Lions was Temba Bavuma's 36 off 25 before he fell to Werner Coetsee.

Malusi Siboto, who took 2 for 26, limited Chris Gayle to 15 off 14. Gayle began with a four and a six off Coetsee but hit a short ball from Siboto straight to short midwicket.

The final will be played on Friday in Cape Town.
