Pakistan's Lahore Lions failed to book a semi-final berth. Catch all the highlights here: (SCORECARD | POINTS TALLY)

Perth Scorchers' Mitchell Marsh not just stopped Lahore Lions from making it to the semifinals of the Champions League Twenty20 with a three-wicket win in their last group match here on Tuesday but also paved the way for Chennai Super Kings' entry into the last-four stage.

Marsh scored an unbeaten 63 off just 38 balls with the help of seven boundaries and three sixes, besides putting up a crucial unbroken 68 runs with Brad Hogg (28 no; 19b 2X4 2X6)) to overhaul a modest target of 125 with six balls to spare at the Chinnaswamy stadium here.

Mitchell Marsh is named the Man of the Match for his match-winning knock along with the two wickets he had picked up in the first innings. The next game is a dead rubber between Barbados Tridents and Northern Knights. Switch over to the coverage of that game in a bit.

!

Just when you thought that Lions would pack the Scorchers up inside 79, skipper Marsh and Hogg got together and played some watchful cricket. They then started hitting the spinners as well as Riaz and finished the game off with six balls to spare. Hogg showed his experience while Marsh showed his talent once again.

!

It was a complete swan-song, this innings. Lahore Lions needed to restrict Lions under 79 runs to qualify for the semis. They looked en route for that as they picked up early wickets at regular intervals. The spinners applied the brakes on the scoring and the Scorchers top order were left clueless against the turning ball.

OUT! In the air and Whiteman is gone, much to the happiness of the Lions players! Back of a length on middle and leg, Whiteman looks to clip the ball through mid-wicket but gets a nasty leading edge that lobs away to Raza at mid on. Perth Scorchers are in some early trouble.

This is strange! NOT OUT! Hafeez slants a flat delivery on middle, Whiteman seems to have got an inside edge away to short leg where Siddiq takes another catch. The Lions fielders go up immediately and very confidently. The umpire goes to the Billy Bowden, the square leg umpire which is strange in itself. Bowden isn't sure either, Rod Tucker the main umpire says that he hasn't seen it clearly. No referral to the third umpire. Replays show that this was clearly off the bat. This is very rough on the Lions. Seems like Hafeez came right in front of the umpire's eyeline on his follow-through.

!

An appeal straightaway for a catch, the Lions go up and the umpire goes to the square leg umpire to have a word, this is strange, why is he doing this?

!

In walks Sam Whiteman to bat at number three. Now, there is a silly point as well.

OUT! Hafeez strikes, Simmons goes for a golden duck! Flighted on middle, Simmons looks to work this into the leg side and gets an inside edge on to his pads. The ball then goes to a deepish short leg who is placed in this attacking field set by Hafeez. The catch is easily taken by Siddiq and Lions strikes early. Simmons doesn't look happy with the decision.
