It's been pouring in Portugal for the last hour or two. The ground conditions weren't ideal and keeping the safety of the players in mind, the umpire's decided to call this one off! No result for the double headers today, but Indian Royals got the two points they needed. Oporto CC have been knocked out, as a result. 

The semi-final spots are sealed then! Malo will be battling it out against Oeiras in the first semi-final tomorrow at 22:00 IST, followed by the second semi-final, which will see Gorkha 11 face off against the Indian Royals at 00:00 IST. Let's hope the rain gods have mercy on tomorrow's proceedings, and we get an exciting penultimate day in this engaging tournament.

That's it for now though. Join us tomorrow night, for the two semi-finals! This is Pratyush, signing off on behalf of my co-commentator, Rishab. Please remember to mask up, stay indoors and stay safe, in these unprecedented times. Until next time! Goodnight.
Sorry news from the center folks! The weather conditions haven't improved in the slightest. The umpire's have called it quits! The points will be shared and will be Indian Royals, who go through to the knockout stages and finish in fourth place. Match abandoned! 
00:30 IST : Still no good news on the weathers folks! A further 15 minute delay has been called in. Understandably so, the players don't seem to pleased with that either as they wait to get on the field. Remember, a draw will be enough for the Indian Royals, to qualify for the knockouts. Hang tight! We'll be back in 15!
The expected time to start was in about 3 minutes, but the weather conditions have not played out as we hoped. There is a further 10 minute delay. Hopefully, the next update is a positive one. Stay tuned!
There has been a delay due to the weather conditions. Play is expected to resume at 00:20 IST!

Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda's coverage of the Portugal T10. It's the final game of the group stages and we have the second of the double header between the Coimbra Knights and the Indian Royals.

The Coimbra Knights have no chance of qualifications after an abysmal campaign, managing only a solitary win from their nine group stage matches that they have played so far. Meanwhile, the Indian Royals are placed fifth and a win tonight will see them through to the playoffs(provided they don't lose by a big margin that hampers their NRR). 

The Coimbra Knights have been impressive in bits and pieces in the tournament. Pedro Madeira is the leading run scorer with 148 runs from 8 innings. Madeira is the only batsmen to muster more than 100 runs and has been their star performer with the bat. 

However, it is their bowling department which has been really impressive. Chris Redhead has bagged 15 wickets in the tournament while Miguel Stoman has 10 wickets to his name. Tony Madeira has contributed with the ball as well, chipping in with 8 wickets.

On the other hand, Indian Royals have shown decent form throughout the tournament. They have four wins to their name and have been largely buoyed by the success of Muhammad Saad and Amandeep Singh with the bat. While the former has garnered 198 runs, Singh has starred with 196 runs. The Royals will look to bag their victory and seal their spot in the knockouts. 

Indian Royals might be stuck in a sticky situation tonight. Rains have played spoil sport on some occasions and that might be the case tonight as well. Two draws and two points will be enough for them to go through to the knockouts. Challenging conditions and possibility of a reduced overs game could mean that this contest turns into a dicey one, especially with the Royals under pressure.

This is Pratyush and joining me shortly will be Rishab, as the two of us take you through all the action that unfolds in this all important contest!
