The Lions roared past Trisl Properties by 70 runs, while the broadcasters overcame the writers by 26 runs in two winner-takes-all contests.

All four teams knew the scenario as they began their matches: for the winners there was the guarantee of at least five more matches; for the losers, meanwhile, it would be the end of the road.

The Lions, fresh from a third-place finish in theMidnightLeague behind Danube and Oxford Marine, produced a clinical performance to overcome Trisl Properties and top Pool B. Trisl never recovered from a disastrous start, with two wickets falling to run-outs in the opening over, and it ended up losing a total of 12 wickets during its innings.

Waqas Tariq was the wrecker-in-chief for the Lions, capturing four wickets as Trisl was restricted to a total of only 10 runs.

In response, the Lions showed no fear of overcoming a small target, cruising to 80, including 16 from that man Waqas Tariq. Having made the contest his own personal plaything, he was the undisputed man of the match.

Radio 4 joined Dubai Lions in the last six after a match in which scoreboard pressure took its toll on Sport360. The broadcasters batted first in Pool C’s battle of the media and posted a competitive 82, helped by some generous offerings by the newspapermen, who conceded 13 wides.
