European Cricket Network live broadcasts two T10 matches on Day 10 of the 2021 FanCode Portugal T10 on Thursday 15 April. Tune into the live action from 1630 GMT | 1830 CEST | 2200 IST from Estádio Municipal de Miranda do Corvo in Coimbra, Portugal.
Co-hosts Miranda Dragons meet Oeiras, who had no trouble last night disposing of the other co-hosts Coimbra Knights, racking up two comfortable wins to continue their rise up the standings after a poor start. Oeiras are perched nicely in second spot and should easily seal tonight's double header unless Miranda Dragons can breathe new fire into their batting skills overnight.
