LPL 2020 Points Table: Colombo Kings chase down mammoth score, set to play semifinal against Galle Gladiators

LPL 2020 Results, Points Table: With the blistering chase of 204 in 20 overs Colombo Kings all set to play in the first semi final of the LPL 2020. Dambulla Viikings batted first and scored a mammoth total of 203 in 20 overs. While chasing down to it Colombo Kings chase down this total in 18.5 over and scored 205 runs.

Ashan Priyanjan, though, kept Kings ticking through that middle period, picking up frequent legside boundaries to keep the asking rate manageable. But with Russell having been rested for this game, and Angelo Mathews in woeful batting form this tournament, Kings still needed someone to provide the big final push.

Enter Qais at No.7 at the beginning of the 14th over. He played himself in, taking only five runs off his first six deliveries, before hitting two confident consecutive fours off Malinda Pushpakumara in the 16th over.

Kings needed 30 off the last 14 balls, so it looked like it was going down to the wire, but Qais made it a cakewalk. He would go on hit five sixes off the seven balls that followed, making sure he never lost the strike.
