A 22-run win for Oporto in the first of the two clashes between these two sides for the day then. They did well batting first and getting close to the 100-mark and then coming out to defend that total as well restricting the Knights to just 76/3.Oporto started well picking the early wicket and keeping the pressure right-away on the batsmen. They kept it tight throughout and did not allow the Knights to get those boundaries that they needed too and it kept going further away from them with every passing over. Pedro Madeira being the lone warrior in that chase for them with an unbeaten 4o but it wasn't enough to get them over the line. 

A good all-round bowling performance and in the field as well from Oporto bagging two crucial points then. The Knights batsmen found it hard to get going and it was too much for them in the end to catch up on. The 26 runs given away as extras earlier when they bowled quite clearly costing them heavy in this chase and that is something they will want to improve in the next game. 

So, the momentum is with Oporto and they will be eyeing an double as these two sides face each other in short time from now yet again. Can they go on and do so or will the Knights bounce back as they desperately need to win. All the action coming your way and make sure you catch up on that game as well shortly. For the moment, this is Rishab and my colleague Lavil as we take your leave. Stay tuned!
Some blows towards the end but too little too late for the Knights this. They could not get going they way they needed to and Oporto have successfully defended this total to win the first of the two clashes between these two sides for the day, winning by 22 runs as the Knights fold up on 76/3!

This is good bowling from Suraj again and another wicket going down for the Knights. Unable to find the fence and Oporto are doing a great job to keep things under control. They certainly look like they are going to defend this score. Well bowled and the Knights are under immense pressure!
