As a result of the conditions, Swift Gallopers and Falcon Hunters have made it to the finals as per the pre-tournament rules. As per the guidelines, the teams finishing in the top two were the favourites to book a spot in the final game if rain intervenes.
Gallopers finished at the top, while the Falcon Hunters came in at second having won four of their last five games in the tournament. The Falcon Hunters solitary defeat was against Gallopers, while the Gallopers lost to Desert Riders in the group fixtures.
