This brings us to the end of our coverage of this First Semi-Final from the ECS T10 Portugal between Malo CC and Oeiras. Thank you for joining us on our coverage.

What a thriller we have seen here, with Malo CC entering the final, by the barest of all margins, with a 1 run win over Oieras, who finish at 80/8 after 10 overs.

For Oieras, they had a massive middle-order muddle. which stalled their chase, but Mohon M F Hussain revived it up towards the end and has ended up as the top-scorer in the innings with a rapid 28 runs from 15 balls, but apart from him and Kuldeep Gholiya at the top of the order, who scored 17 runs from 10 balls, none of the other batsmen stood up.

The Malo CC bowlers dragged them back in the game, with Mian Mehmood being their best bowler with a 2/15 from just 1 over, while Zafar Ali came back strongly and ended up with 2/22 in 2 overs. Assad Mehmood bowled an outstanding spell of just 1/4 from 2 overs, which choked the Oieras batsmen in the middle, while Syed Maisam and Yasir Sabir too picked up a wicket each, with Maisam getting 1/16 from his 2 overs and Sabir getting the wicket off the final delivery of the game and ending up with 1/7 in his 1 over. Najam Shahzad bowled an effective spell too, with 0/12 in his 2 overs.

What an absolute cliffhanger of a game we witnessed here today and Malo CC are the first team that make it to the Grand Final tomorrow.

9.6 Y Sabir to Mohon M F Hussain, OUT! Malo have done it! They go through to the final! Good length ball on the stumps, he tries to go big across the line but misses and gets hit on the pads. Big appeal from all the players in green and grey, and the umpire raises his finger. Phew! What a match it has been!
It's a wicket going down yet again for Oieras, with Amandeep run-out and suddenly this game is on the razor's edge, with Oieras needing 2 runs from the last ball and Hussain will be on strike.

Shayaddur Rahman will be at the non-striker's end.
9.5 Y Sabir to Mohon M F Hussain, full ball on the off-stump, slaps it to long-on and scampers through. They try to scamper back for the second but Amandeep is well short of his ground. Doesn't matter though, Hussain is on strike for the final ball. 2 runs required now!
9.4 Y Sabir to Mohon M F Hussain, dot ball! This match is not over yet. Short of a length outside off, tries to dab it and run but gets beaten. Need 3 off 2 now.
9.3 Y Sabir to Mohon M F Hussain, SIX! The match has turned on its head! Charges at the bowler, he digs it in short but Hussain spots it well. Swings the bat across the line and despatches it over the square leg fence
9.2 Y Sabir to Mohon M F Hussain, full and a bit closer to the off-stump, another swing and a miss by Hussain. That's a crucial dot ball
9.1 Y Sabir to Mohon M F Hussain, full ball wide of the off-stump, he swings hard but connects only with thin air

8.3 Najam Shahzad to Mohon M F Hussain, SIX! Wow! Digs it in short outside the off-stump. Hussain slaps it over wide long-off. Doesn't look like it is timed well, but the ball continues to travel and clears the fence
8.2 Najam Shahzad to Mohon M F Hussain, short delivery wide of the off-stump, Hussain gets beaten by the pace and ends up playing the cut a bit too early
8.1 Najam Shahzad to Mohon M F Hussain, short of a length delivery, he goes for the flick but gets cramped up for room. Miscues it down to long-on. The timing is off which helps them to come back for the second
