The Blues thus topped Group A with six points and along with Mumbai Indians (5) qualified for the semi-finals leaving the Trinidad and Tobago, who earlier beat Nashua Cape Cobras by two wickets, heart-broken and on four points.
The South Africans finished with three points and the Super Kings ended at the bottom with two.
