It is only logical for two of the best sides in any tournament to meet in the final for the title. It is pity then, that the second semi-final of the CLT20 to be played at Centurion on Saturday will pit the South Australia Redbacks against the Chevrolet Warriors, with arguably the two most consistent sides of the tournament taking each other on a day earlier than either would have preferred.
While the Redbacks have been runaway leaders in Group B having walloped each of the other four teams in the group comprehensively, the Warriors have also had a fine run in Group A and have looked the stronger side in the group despite finishing second to Chennai. Chennai's net run rate has ensured their top-place finish however had the Warriors gone all out for a win in their last league game against Dhoni's men, Chennai would just have been on an early flight home.
South Australia Redbacks:
With 213 runs at an amazing average of 71.00 and an in-form opening partner to go with, Michael Klinger is clearly one of the most important reasons the Redbacks find themselves in the semi-finals. The skipper was not only considered a suspect choice for this format of the game but his appointment at the helm raised a lot of eyebrows before the tournament. Klinger though, has come up with a performance which has not only silenced doubters, but also given his humble side the chance of replicating the success of their much-fancied Aussie counterparts, New South Wales.
