Right then, a disappointing to end to this Semi-Final as rain gods showed no mercy and that brings an end to our coverage of this match. Do join us for the Final of the tournament where Twiga Titans will take on Chui Challengers for the coveted trophy.Till then this is me, Pradeep Somashekar, and my partner, Maanas Upadhyay, signing off! Stay safe!
That's it for this game, we have an official confirmation. The match has been ABANDONED due to rain and Chui Challengers have ADVANCED to the final with higher net run rate and they face Twiga Titans later in the day!
While we wait for the rain to subside and the match to resume, enlighten yourself with a dissertation of pure excellence penned by one of our finest writers, Shashwat Kumar, as an accolade to arguably the best wicketkeeper the world has ever seen: MS Dhoni.

Here are few excerpts from the article:

"For any other cricketer, his career could well have been defined by a run out on his first and final international appearance. Yet, MS Dhoni, through sheer will and tons of skill, ensured that he would be remembered for everything that happened in between."

"But, then again, will we ever be able to understand MS Dhoni?
Well, perhaps not. Perhaps, we were never even meant to."

The umpires are asking the players to walk off. The covers are being brought on and we're having a stoppage in play due to the heavy rain. We will be back shortly. Stay tuned for updates!

Welcome Ladies and Gentlemen to Sportskeeda's live coverage of the Advance Players League (APL) Tanzania T20. The Second Qualifier will witness the clash of the Chui Challengers and the Simba Kings at the DAR Gym, Tanzania.

Chui Challengers had a promising season overall as they secured 3 wins from their 5 games and finished second on the points table. However, they come into this match on the back of a crushing defeat against the Twiga Titans where the Challengers failed to chase down the target of 141 set by the Titans. They will surely be looking to employ a different strategy as they have another chance to play the Final.

On the other hand, the Simba Kings will be riding high on confidence as they won a tight game against the Tembo Stars, managing to defend 8 runs off the final over after scoring 155 runs in the first innings. They will look to play a similar brand of cricket and topple the Challengers to cement a spot in the finals. The last time these two teams faced off in the league stage, the Challengers had thrashed the Kings by 47 runs.

We are in for a cracker of a contest and thankfully my partner, Pradeep Somashekar, and me, Maanas Upadhyay, are here to take you through all the live action that unfolds in Tanzania over the next couple of hours or so.
Stay tuned for the Toss Update and the Team Sheets!
