That's all we have got for you from this encounter and we will be back with more games as the tournament goes forward tomorrow. Stay tuned to Sportskeeda for more updates and news from around the world as myself, Sudheer, my co-commentator, Abhinav Singh are signing off at the moment. Cheers and have fun.
Royals win two games in four matches under their belt while Oporto have lost both their matches in the tournament so far. Royals are equal on points with Oeiras but their NRR is lower and hence they are 3rd in the points table.
Oporto batsmen couldn't handle the steam of Royals pacers as the lost half of their side in the first 5 overs of the innings. No batsmen made any significant contribution and that really put them on the backfoot right from the start of the innings. Kanaka Sabhapathy, who batted at number 7, was the highest run scorer for his team as he ended on 15 runs to his name. Junaid Khan was the only other batsman to get to double figures with 10 runs to his name. Others didn't make anything significant to talk about and folded for just 57 runs losing 7 wickets in 10 overs.

Indian Royals register a convincing victory in this match as they had everything going their way right from the start of the innings. Their bowlers did a fantastic job with Syed Ali Naqi being the star of them picking 3 wickets while Muhammad Saad got 2 wickets in his two overs. Sukhwinder Singh and Amandeep Singh also managed to pick a wicket each. Royals conceded just one boundary in their innings tells us how disciplined they were with the ball as they win the match by 39 runs. 
Over: 10 | Summary: 1 0 1lb 4 2 0 Bowler: Jaswinder Kumar Score: 56/7
9.6 Jaswinder Kumar to Kanaka Sabhapathy, OPORTO'S MISERY COMES TO AN END! overpitched ball bowled outside offstump. Kanaka tries to slash it away behind point. However, the ball keeps a tad low as the batsman slogs over it and ends up missing the white kokkaburra rather comprehensively! Oporto lose the match by 39 runs! Not the day they would like to remember!
9.5 Jaswinder Kumar to Kanaka Sabhapathy, fuller length ball bowled outside offstump. Kanaka on the fronfoot chips the ball straight over the bowler's head down to long off for an easy couple of runs 
9.4 Jaswinder Kumar to Kanaka Sabhapathy, FOUR! FLICKED! Back of length delivery angling down the leg. Kanaka gets inside the line of the ball and clips it off his hips to the long leg fence for a boundary 
9.3 Jaswinder Kumar to Adam Mackay, length ball drifting down the leg. Adam fails to get any bat on this one as the ball thuds on his thigh pads and balloons to 45 for a single off leg bye
9.2 Jaswinder Kumar to Adam Mackay, fuller length ball bowled on the fifth stump line. Adam with half a press forward tries to drive the ball, only to miss it in his brave endeavour
9.1 Jaswinder Kumar to Kanaka Sabhapathy, slow yorker length ball in the blockhole. Kanaka is early on the ball as he inside halves this one to deep square leg for a single
Jaswinder to bowl the final over of the innings.

Amandeep Singh and Sukhwinder Singh continue the good work done by their pace bowlers and just played Oporto out of this match. Final over coming up with 48 runs needed for Oporto.

7.6 Amandeep Singh to Neil Charles, OUT! LBW! Tossed up ball on middle and offstump. Charles charges down the track, tries to slog across the line but is found plumb in front of the stumps as the ball thuds on his front pad.
