Malo CC Vilamoura won by 7 wickets
Malo CC Vilamoura beat Rossio CC by 7 wickets and 14 balls remaining!

That brings us to the end of a one-sided affair as Malo CC Vilamoura beat Rossio CC by 7 wickets and 14 balls remaining. The Malo CC started off the chase on a very positive note as the openers looked to go big in the very first over of the chase. But they were struck twice by Rahul who picked two wickets in two balls in the second over as Malo were reduced to 16/2 and 28/3 later on in the third over. Just when everyone thought that there will be a twist in the tale, Amir Zaib started going big and taking on the bowlers. He struck six fours and one huge SIX as he finished not out scoring 40 runs off just 27 deliveries. The other batsmen scored in single digits but was enough to seal things off and help MALO CC beat Rosssio CC.

Rahul Bharadwaj was the pick of the bowlers for Rossio as he picked 3 wickets in his spell of two overs giving away just 8 runs. He bowled well and pulled back his team into the chase but that wasn't enough as they had very little on the board.
