FanCode ECS Portugal Cartaxo provided an opportunity for seven teams contesting 24 games over six days to establish the Champions. Every game was 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.
Malo (MAL), the most successful Portuguese club in ECN history, made their mark again in Portugal, adding the FanCode ECS Portugal Cartaxo silverware to their already bulging trophy cabinet after winning European Cricket Series Cartaxo 2020 and FanCode Portugal T10 2021 titles as well.
Batting first, Malo put on 133/5 in 10 overs after a half-century from Syed Maisam and a quickfire 33 from Amir Zaib. Imran Rao's scintillating fifty and Deepu Mansurpuria's 44 kept Fighters CC in the hunt in the run-chase, but the pair’s dismissal from back-to-back deliveries in the penultimate over bowled by Najam Shahzad turned the game significantly. Although 13 runs came off the final over, FIG fell an agonising four runs short.
