83/8 (10)
84/1 (8)
OEI won by 9 wickets
 
Oeiras - 84/1 in 8 overs (Francoise Stoman 42* off 26 balls, John Zinkus 1/22 in 2 overs) beat Indian Royals - 83/8 in 10 overs (Amandeep Khokhar 33 off 19 balls, Conrad Greenshields 3/11 in 2 overs) by 9 wickets and go through to the semi-finals. 

Oeiras, courtesy their captain Conrad Greenshields and Francoise Stoman, complete the run chase with ease, with two overs left in the 2nd innings. They now go on to face Gorkha 11 in the first semi-final tomorrow.

The partnership between Greenshields and Stoman was perhaps the best thing that could happen for Oeiras heading into the final four. Just that the injury scare to the skipper's leg had the fans' hearts in their mouths, but all seems alright now. 

Indian Royals had to bowl well and take wickets to stay in the contest, but that did not happen and the batting side was in cruise control right till the end.

So join us tomorrow for the semi-finals, with the second match being between Punjab CC and Malo. For now, after the action at the Gucherre Cricket Ground, this is the pair of Pradeep and Bidipto, saying good bye! Keep following Sportskeeda!

7.6 Lakshman KC to Francoise Stoman, GAME, SET AND MATCH! Oeiras into the semi-finals and that's the end of the road for the Indian Royals! Change of pace, short on the outside off, Stoman waits for it and slaps it into the off-side for a single.
7.5 Lakshman KC to Conrad Greenshields, OH! Excellent stop from the fielder at deep square-leg and keeps it to a single. Short on the off-stump, Greenshields clobbers it towards deep square-leg.
7.4 Lakshman KC to Francoise Stoman, length delivery on the off-stump, Stoman leans into it and chips it straight down the ground for another single.
7.3 Lakshman KC to Conrad Greenshields, full delivery on the off-stump, Greenshields opens the blade, squeezes it to point, Greenshields had to hurry as the fielder darts it to the bowler. Greenshields slides awkwardly and might've hurt himself badly here, not good for the Oeiras going into the semi-finals!
7.2 Lakshman KC to Conrad Greenshields, FOUR! Change of pace, doesn't matter for Greenshields, waits for the full delivery and laces it over the extra-cover and picks out the ropes. Just 4 needed now off 16!
7.1 Lakshman KC to Francoise Stoman, full toss from around the wicket, just below waist height, Stoman waits for it to come to him and eases it past covers for a single.
Lakshman KC, right-arm medium, is in to bowl.

The match is well and truly in control of the two Oeiras batters. Single digits required in terms of runs to win!

6.6 Jai Parkash to Conrad Greenshields, low full toss, tails into Greenshields on the middle and leg, gets behind and carefully defends it into the deck.
6.5 Jai Parkash to Conrad Greenshields, FOUR! That went like a bullet past the fence. Full on the outside off, Greenshields plants his front foot forward and smashes it completely, through the covers and no chance for the sweeper in the end for a boundary!
6.4 Jai Parkash to Francoise Stoman, too full on the middle and off, Stoman on the backfoot pushes it down to long-off for one more.
6.3 Jai Parkash to Conrad Greenshields, yorker length on the middle and off, Greenshields drills that one through the covers for another single.
6.2 Jai Parkash to Francoise Stoman, yorker length on the middle and leg, Stoman gets behind it and drills it down to long-on for a single.
6.1 Jai Parkash to Francoise Stoman, FOUR! The wheels are coming off now for the Royals. Short on the outside off, Stoman cuts that one fiercely through the covers and picks out the ropes!
Jai Parkash, right-arm medium, is in to bowl.

This is the over that has perhaps turned the match Oeiras' way. This partnership is running away with the match. Extremely intelligent batting from both batters out in the middle. Mix of power and innovation!

5.5 Lovejeet Singh to Conrad Greenshields, tossed up on the middle and off, Greenshields presses forward to smother.
