However, Colombo Stars outclassed them by 6 wickets to seal their place in the final. Once the opening pair of Andrew Fletcher (0) and Pathum Nissanka (2) failed to hit the straps in the big game. Kamindu Mendis (23 off 29) never got going with the bat.

Rajitha starred with the ball for Colombo Stars as he picked four wickets for just 20 runs in 4 overs. In pursuit of the target, Colombo Stars lost Madushka (11 off 8) early, but Dinesh Chandimal (38 off 33) and Charith Asalanka (64 off 40) put on a match-changing 90-run partnership for the second wicket, helping the side reach 100-run mark.

Asalanka, unfortunately, got run out in the 14th over but Ravi Bopara and Angelo Mathews guided the side home easily in just 18.5 overs. Bopara played a solid knock of 29 runs in 16 balls, while Angelo Mathews amassed 21 in 13 deliveries.
