The Oporto Cricket Club will take on the Miranda Dragons in the 35th match of the ECS T10 Portugal at the Estádio Municipal de Miranda do Corvo Ground on Friday.
The Oporto Cricket Club have blown hot and cold in the ECS T10 Portugal so far. They lost their first four games before winning three out of their next four fixtures. The Oporto Cricket Club then succumbed to two successive losses and currently find themselves fifth in the standings. They will face the Miranda Dragons twice in their last two group stage fixtures. In order to qualify for the semi-finals, the Oporto Cricket Club have to win both matches and hope the Indian Royals lose at least three out of their last four games.
Meanwhile, the Miranda Dragons are reeling at the bottom of the ECS T10 Portugal points table. They have won just one out of their six fixtures so far. The Miranda Dragons' only win came against the Coimbra Knights.
