The Indian Royals will be up against Malo in match number 40 of the ECS T10 Portugal on Monday.
The Indian Royals have blown hot and cold in the ECS T10 Portugal. The Sukhwinder Singh-led side lost their first two games against Oeiras before winning four games on the bounce, beating Oporto Cricket Club and Miranda Dragons twice each. They were then beaten by Gorkha 11 twice.
For the Indian Royals to make it to the semi-finals, they need to win at least three out of their remaining four games. Two wins may also be enough, but they need to ensure they don’t lose by big margins.
Meanwhile, Malo have already qualified for the semi-finals of the ECS T10 Portugal. Barring their losses to Gorkha 11 and Oporto Cricket Club, Malo have been dominant in the competition. They have won six games so far and will be looking to finish the league stage on a high.
