Current Form Northern Warriors:
Northern Warriors have beaten Team Abu Dhabi in the last game to book the Finals berth.

Paul Stirling played a phenomenal knock of 48 in just 13 deliveries to keep the momentum in check. However, after his dismissal, the middle order could not fire much and Warriors restricted them to a total of 114 for 7 in 10 overs. Fabien Allen was the pick of the bowlers as he claimed 4 wickets in his spell.
Chasing 114, Northern Warriors decided to use Lendl Simmons at his original opening position. He indeed left his impact with 46 off 27 deliveries at the top of the order. Waseem Muhammad, who performed with great standards in the former games could not deliver this time as he was dismissed at 10 by Rohan Mustafa. Nicholas Pooran was the next one to follow as he was dismissed for duck by Naveen-Ul-Haq. Post that, Rovman Powell along with Lendl Simmons ensured they did not have any further hiccup while chasing the total. They collected 76 runs in between each other for the 3rd wicket to seal the game for their team. In the end, Northern Warriors chased the target on the second last ball of the match.
Current Form Delhi Bulls:

After winning the toss, they invited Northern Warriors to have a bat first. Both Brandon King and Waseem Muhammad were dismissed early on in the innings leaving Warriors in a bit of a bother. Nicolas Pooran tried to revive the innings with his well made 32 off 13 deliveries but after his dismissal, the innings could get nowhere. Both Rovman Powell and Fabien Allen failed to leave any impact in the game and Northern Warriors could only manage 97 for 7 in 10 overs. Dwayne Bravo was phenomenal with the ball as he gave away only 14 runs in 2 overs and picked up 2 wickets.
Chasing 97, Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Evin Lewis once again got off to a flier as they collected 24 runs in 1.3 overs, before the first wicket fell in the form of Lewis.
