Coimbra Knights, Gorkha 11, Indian Royals, Malo, Oeiras, Oporto and Miranda Dragons feature over 23 successive evenings in 46 hotly-anticipated T10 night matches from Portugal. Every game will be live streamed worldwide on the European Cricket Network and on FanCode - a multi-sport aggregator platform, from the house of Dream Sports for the Indian Sub-Continent.
European Cricket Network live broadcasts two T10 matches on Day 9 of the 2021 FanCode Portugal T10 on Wednesday 14 April.
Hosts Coimbra Knights opened their account with a win over co-hosts Miranda Dragons in last night's opener, before slipping to defeat in the next game following a woeful batting display. CK need to up their game with the bat to have any chance of making it to the top four. Oeiras sit in third with two wins and two losses and should easily seal tonight's double header unless Coimbra Knights can seriously improve their batting form overnight.
