Led by captain Sompal Kami, the Tigers thrashed Rhinos by nine wickets in Qualifier 1 to secure their place in the summit clash. The Chitwan Tigers had earlier finished as EPL T20 2021 table-toppers with four wins and one loss in five matches this season.
On the other hand, Pokhara Rhinos defeated Bhairahawa Gladiators by seven wickets in Qualifier 2 to set up a mouth-watering clash against Chitwan Tigers. The Binod Bhandari-led side finished third in the group stage with three victories and one defeat. One match was abandoned without a bowl being bowled.
