Oporto bagging their first win then, defeating Malo by 12 runs in the end as they defend their total off 77. They needed to get the early wickets which they did, courtesy John Zinkus, who was magnificent at the top, keeping it tidy as well, ending with figures of 2/10. Junaid Khan was equally terrific with figures of 2/9 as they kept taking wickets once they got the momentum and built that pressure on the batsmen. Couple of wickets for Raghu Raman as well in what has been a complete bowling effort from Oporto. 

Malo needed to bat sensibly as they weren't chasing a lot but they failed to start well, lost too many wickets once they started loosing them and the pressure was too much for them to recover from in the end. Jayesh Popat was the only significant contributor scoring a 14-ball 25 but that was not going to be enough and with no other batsmen coming to the party, it only made matters worse for them. 

These kind of totals can often get tricky if the bowling side gets a good start and puts some early pressure on the chasing side and we have yet another example of the same in this game. A good win overall for Oporto then, their first of the competition and that should give them some confidence as things haven't gone their way for most. Disappointing batting effort from Malo as they will feel they could have chased this down rather than making a mess of it as they did. It is what it is then and that is it from me (Rishab) and my partner Lavil for the moment as we bid you goodbye!
Raghu Raman and Oporto holding holding their nerves to wrap things up then. Another brilliant over in the end and they have successfully defended their total off 77 that may not have seemed enough at the half-way stage. Wickets tumbling and this has all gone wrong for Malo. First win for Oporto then and a great comeback from them this has been!

Malo loosing their way, wickets going down, too many dot balls and this seems to be getting tougher for them from here. Brilliant bowling from Suraj at the death, keeping it tight and perfect execution from him. Final over coming up then as Malo need 18 runs to win. Can they pull off a magical over?

Wickets falling for Malo now and this game looks like it is going down the wire. Brilliant over from Junaid this and just what Oporto needed to spice things up here. Terrific bowling and Oporto will want to finish this game from here having picked up some momentum. This could go either way, intense two overs!
