With this win, Trichy have eight points and still, they won't be able to make it to the playoffs because of their lesser NRR. VB Kanchi Veerans, on the other hand, finished the tournament with a solitary win and the young lot will look to regroup, come back next year and pose a challenge.

It took some late hitting from Francis Rokins to get Kanchi to 136. And this means that Trichy need to chase this down in 7.5 overs if they are to overtake Kovai Kings and get to fourth spot in the TNPL 2018 standings.
