Malo secure their 9th win in the tournament and they are currently standing 2nd on the table and almost secured a place in the playoffs while Indian Royals need to win two of the remaining 3 games to have any chance to enter the playoffs in this ECS T10 Portugal Tournament.
A comprehensive victory for Malo CC as they chase down the total of 84 runs inside 9 overs and win the match by 9 wickets with 8 balls to spare. Both these two batsmen did the perfect job of seeing the team home without losing any more wickets as they were able to score boundaries at regular intervals and keep the required run rate under control at every instance.

Zulfiqar Shah gave a perfect start with the bat in this chase as he kept the boundaries coming and got out for 33 runs from just 18 balls with 2 bix sixes in his innings. Once Zulfiqar got out, Mian Mehmood took the mantle of scoring some quick runs as he scored 27 runs from 23 balls while Najam Shahzad joined in the final stages with a four and six from his bat as he finished on 16 runs to his name. It was a comfortable chase for them and never looked like they were under pressure in chasing down this total.

Indian Royals bowlers couldn't get a start they were looking for as they leaked too many runs at the start and never got the opportunity to come back into the game given they didn't have too much to defend on the board. Royals' spinners did a decent job in the middle overs to create pressure as Amandeep was rewarded with a wicket. Others couldn't do any damage and failed to make any impact on the game.
