Malo CC Vilamoura won by 2 wickets
Malo CC Vilamoura beat Rossio CC by 2 wickets and have qualified for the final.

PHEW! End of a nail-biting game between Malo Cc Vilamoura and Rossio Cc as the former beat the latter by 2 wickets. The Malo started off on a great note as they minted sixteen runs off the very first over but they lost a wicket in the very first over of the game as well. What followed was some terrific display of batting by Adnan who scored 20 runs off just 9 deliveries at an SR of 222. Although he got on the final ball of the powerplay, Zafar Ali held one end and batted as long as he could scoring 29 runs off 23 deliveries before getting plumb to Siraj. At one stage, it looked like Malo will finish off the chase very early but the Rossio CC has done extremely well to drag it all the way down the wire.

Fantastic bowling by Munna Rahman and skipper Siraj meant that Malo lost 4 wickets for just 17 runs and were required to score 33 runs off the last three overs. Just when the game was drifting towards GCCR, Ikram threw his bat at everything and scored vital 15 runs as Malo CC were required to score 20 runs of the last two overs. That is when the tailender - Yasir Sabir chipped in with some handsome hits scoring 16 runs and sealing the chase and seeing his team through to the finals.
