Bangalore: After registering a win against Dolphins in the last encounter, Pakistan champions Lahore Lions will go a for the kill to qualify for the semi-final when they lock horns against a formidable Perth Scorchers in the Champions League T20 Tournament here on Tuesday.



With reigning IPL champions Kolkata Knight Riders already in the final-four, Lions would eye to race past Chennai Super Kings on better run-rate to qualify for the semi-final.


Lahore are placed third on the points-table with six points from three games, while the Australian outfit is out of contention, as they bagged only four points from three games.


The Mohammed Hafeez-led side will thus have to rely on a big win against the Australian side.


In the second game of the day, Barbados Tridents will take on the Northern Knights in an inconsequential Group B match.


With the Kings XI Punjab and Hobart Hurricanes already booking their semi-final spot from this group, bottom-placed Tridents and fourth-placed Knights have already bowed out of the tournament and the two sides will only play for pride at the Chinnaswamy.
