CLT20: Sydney Sixers beat Chennai Super Kings by 14 runs

CENTURION: Sydney Sixers captain Brad Haddin feels that the "two best teams" have made it to the final of the Champions League Twenty20.

"We got our jail-free card," an ecstatic Haddin said. "No matter what format you play, you have got to execute your skills. We panicked a bit but but we are into the finals. We can think of anything of this game, but the bottom line is we have a final to play this Sunday," the Australia discard added.

"We have played Lions before, and they are similarly stacked as us. I think the two best teams have made it to the final."

Man of the match Steve O'Keefe who was promoted as a makeshift opener said,"Hadds came to me three days ago if I wanted to open, and I jumped at the opportunity. Opening the batting was good fun. Probably the first time I have been man-of-the-match without taking a wicket, but I will take it. Not our most clinical performance, but we have a final coming up."

Nashua Titans skipper Martin van Jaarsveld was a disappointed man having lost a chance to make it to the finals having come so far.

"Really disappointed," says Van Jaarsveld. "But really proud how we kept fighting. With the bat, we were down and out. I have been talking him up through the tournament, and boy did he shine tonight. Our execution up top is not where we'd like it to be, and that's where we lost. A bitter pill to swallow."
