This is the first time that either of Karachi Kings or Lahore Qalandars have qualified for the PSL final.
Karachi Kings are coming off a strange Qualifier match against Multan Sultans. Their bowlers set up the victory for them with Waqas Maqsood and Arshad Iqbal picking up two wickets each.
Mohammad Amir, despite not being among the wickets, bowled well and kept the runs dry, going at 6.00 RPO.
Chasing 142, Karachi Kings were cruising along. But when Babar Azam was dismissed for 65, things began to go pear shaped. Imad Wasim's last-ball boundary meant that the match went into a super over.
Amir landed most of his yorkers in the Super Over to help the team win after Sherfane Rutherford hit a couple of boundaries off Sohail Tanvir.
David Wiese and Haris Rauf were the stars for Lahore Qalandars in their 25-run victory over Multan Sultans in Eliminator 2.
Fakhar Zaman and Tamim Iqbal gave Lahore a brilliant start, adding 46 runs but it was a 21-ball 48-run whirlwind from David Wiese which propped up their score.
Haris Rauf and David Wiese then picked up three wickets each to take Lahore to the finals, where their momentum will be key.

“We played good cricket in the Qualifier but couldn’t finish it off how we wanted to but we are glad that we are in the finals. We are going to go out there express ourselves and I am hopeful we will win the trophy.
“We are going to play the final for Dean Jones who was a father-like figure in our dressing room and a great influence on our team. We want to dedicate the trophy to him, which is an additional motivation for the entire squad.
“We are really looking forward to what is our first HBL PSL final.”
Lahore Qalandars captain Sohail Akhtar: “It's a big achievement to reach the final. The belief that was there for five years has paid off. Our fans have stood by us for five years and now is the time to give them the best possible gift by winning the trophy.
“We will try to build on the momentum we have had and the key for success in the final will be to stick to the basics in both batting and bowling departments.
“Playing the final against Karachi in their own backyard is a massive occasion and I am sure it will have a huge following on TV and social media. We are really excited and looking forward to the game."
Head to Head:
History favours Kings in the Head to Head between the two sides.
Kings and Qalandars have met on 10 occasions in the HBL PSL with Kings winning six matches.
Qalandars have won three matches plus have an additional victory under their belt, courtesy an exciting Super Over finish in a 2018 edition group-match played in Dubai.
This edition, the two sides shared their two games with Qalandars winning at home (Gaddafi Stadium) by eight wickets and Kings recorded a crushing 10-wicket win at the National Stadium in the return group-stage fixture.
