In what will be a rematch of Qualifier 1 of the Tanzania T10 League, the Chui Riders will be squaring off against the Buffalo Gladiators in the final at the Leader's Club Ground on Tuesday.
The Chui Riders have had a tremendous run in the Tanzania T10 League so far. They finished as table-toppers, having won three of their five league stage matches. The Riders entered the summit clash by defeating the same opponents convincingly by nine wickets in Qualifier 1.
Buffalo Gladiators, on the other hand, reached the final, owing to their higher net run-rate. Their last match (Eliminator 2) was abandoned due to rain. The Gladiators managed to pick up two wins from their five league stage matches and finished second.
The Riders and the Gladiators have met twice this season, with the former emerging victorious on both occasions.
Nonetheless, with the prestigious Tanzania T10 League title on the line, an exciting final clash beckons on Tuesday.
