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.
Gorkha 11 (playing as Rossio CC) gave the eventual winners Malo a real scare at the European Cricket Series Cartaxo, but cruelly lost their crunch semi-final off the last ball, overthrows cost them a place in the final. Gorkha 11 did enjoy better fortune in a dramatic Golden Ball finish in the group stages against Oeiras. That high pressure experience can only benefit a talented Gorkha 11 in the FanCode Portugal T10. In Siraj Nipo, Gorkha 11 have the best spinner in the tournament and will be very hard to beat.
