Bhilwara Kings took a longer route to the finals as after losing Qualifier 1 against India Capitals they crossed swords against Gujarat Giants, where they decimated them by six wickets to secure a berth in the summit clash. 

India Capitals, meanwhile, had smooth sailing to the showdown of the tournament. They outclassed Bhilwara Kings in Qualifier 1 in the high-scoring thriller to seal their berth in the final.
