The winners will meet in the final on April 22.

Jaish had defeated Lekhwiya 27-23 in last year’s final at the same venue. 

In fact, they are two-time defending champions having defeated Rayyan in 2015 final as well and will be eyeing a hat-trick.

Meanwhile, the qualification rounds of season-ending Emir’s Cup began last Monday. The final will be played at the QHA Hall on April 30.
