The EPL3 eliminator will witness Bhairahawa Gladiators and Chtiwan Tigers locking horns at Kirtipur tomorrow to stay alive in the tournament. The losing side will bid adieu to the tournament while the winner will have to play another encounter against the loser of Qualifier 1 to secure a spot in the finals.
Bhairahawa Gladiators finished third on the points table with 6 points coming off 3 wins and 2 defeats. Gladiators started their campaign with 4 wickets win over Pokhara Rhinos and went on to register two more wins against Chtiwan Tigers and Biratnagar Warriors in the second and third encounter. However, in the last two encounters. Gladiators have looked off colour and faced two defeats against Lalitpur Patriots and Kathmandu Kings XI.
They will have to make a strong comeback against Chitwan Tigers repeating the same result. In their first encounter, Gladiators turned out to be the winner by 12 runs after restricting Tigers for 131-9 in response to 143 runs target.
Chtiwan Tigers finished fourth in the league table with 4 points coming off 2 wins and 3 defeats in a total of five encounters. Placed just below them are defending champions Biratnagar Warriors with same numbers. The only difference between the two sides is in their net run rate. Warriors were knocked out of the tournament in their last encounter against Kathmandu Kings XI where they suffered a crushing 5 wickets defeats. A narrow-margin defeat wouldn’t have done anything wrong for Warriors but this thumping defeat knocked them out of the tournament and with a slightly better run rate Tigers roared into the playoffs.
