The Lahore Lions take on Perth Scorchers this afternoon at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. This will be match 19 in Group B of the OPPO Champions League Twenty20 2014. The only significance of this Lahore Lions vs Perth Scorchers – CLT20 2014 match which begins at 4:00 pm IST is the fact that the Lahore Lions still have a small chance of making it to the Semi Finals from Group B along with Kolkata Knights who are already through.
The task for the Lahore Lions is to defeat Perth Scorers by about 50 runs should the former get to bat first or by the 15th over should the former be chasing any target. If the Lahore Lions can achieve either of this, then they could down the Chennai Super Kings to enter in the Semi Finals.
The Perth Scorchers are out of the tournament and there is nothing but pride to play for today in the second last league game of CLT20 2014.
