Well, well...Finally the 2021 Portugal T10 comes to an end, with surprise champions being Malo cc, who edged past the tournament favourites Gorkha 11. We've been treated with some thrillers throughout the tournament and the mega-final is no different. Hope you enjoyed the coverage and until next time, this is Pragadeesh signing off on behalf of my colleague Dwijesh. Goodnight.
Malco CC have done it again as they beat Gorkha 11 to win the ECS T10 Portugal League. Did anyone give them the chance until the final ball to emerge victorious in this match? It's a massive steal from them, as they were kicking themselves at the halfway stage for conceding too many extras at the start. In fact, they bowled 25 extras in an 81-run chase and came out trumps eventually.

Gorkha 11 did nothing wrong until the final over. With 10 needed from the final six, and with the well-set Nipo on the strike, things seemed to be a walk in the park for Gorkha 11. But Saif Ali bowled three dream deliveries to get rid of Nipo and knocked the stumps of Thapa in the final ball, with 4 runs needed. It was heartbreaking for Gorkha as they finished as table-toppers and were in a supreme position to clinch the title in this match. However, two heroic displays in the final over - one from Syed Maisam with the bat, and another from Saif Ali with the ball handed Malo CC the ECS T10 title outta nowhere. Believe it or not, Malo CC are the champions of this Portugal edition.

9.6 Syed Ali to Madhukar Thapa, BOWLED! MALO CC WIN! A full ball bowled on off-stump, Thapa swings hard but to no avail as Ali gets the job done! Malo CC are the champions of ECS T10 Portugal League 2021
Who saw this coming? Nipo couldn't finish the match when it mattered the most, as he ball knocked the stumps after hitting his elbow
9.5 Syed Ali to Md Siraj Nipo, BOWLED! IS THAT THE GAME!? A back of a length delivery that follows Nipo, who makes room, only to get hit on the body. However, the ball ricochets off his body on to the stumps as the bails come off! This is a bizarre dismissal but Malo won't care one bit!
Alright! 4 needed from 2 balls now
9.4 Syed Ali to Absar Alam, a slower ball bowled very full, Alam gets some bat on it and rushes through for a single
9.3 Syed Ali to Absar Alam, DOT BALL! A full ball bowled across the batsman, who cannot get bat on ball!
9.2 Syed Ali to Absar Alam, IN THE AIR AND LANDS SAFE! A length ball bowled on the body, Alam top edges one towards the fine-leg region and comes back for a brace!
9.1 Syed Ali to Absar Alam, DOT! A length ball bowled across the batsman, who heaves all around the ball!
9.1 Syed Ali to Md Siraj Nipo, WIDE! Another one down the leg-side and this time, the keeper misses it, allowing the extra run
9.1 Syed Ali to Md Siraj Nipo, WIDE! Not the ideal start to the over as Ali bowls a wide down the leg-side!
10 needed from the final over. Looks like Syed Ali is going to bowl

Two dots in a row and the pressure was creeping. Azhar Adani tried to play a big shot but he has run himself out in the last ball of the over. Top-notch from Shahzad as he gives his team an outside chance to win this encounter.
