The 15th match of the European Cricket Championship T10, 2021 will see Belgium locking horns with Sweden at the Cartama Oval in Cartama, Spain. It’s a Group A clash with two exciting teams facing off.
Belgium are on a roll in the competition so far. They have won all their first four games and look favorites to qualify for the knockouts. The Belgians have won comprehensively as their batsmen have stepped up to put big totals on the board. Their bowlers have restricted their opposition to low totals as well.
In the game against Luxembourg, Belgium restricted the opposition to 45 before chasing it down with four balls to spare. It was a five-over game due to rain and this win would surely have boosted their confidence. They will be eager to keep the winning momentum going.
Sweden, on the other hand, got off to a winning start in the competition but lost their way. Their game against Norway was washed out due to rain and in the following game, they suffered a loss against Spain in a rain-curtailed game.
Spain scored 72 in their five overs as the Swedish bowlers failed to pick up wickets. Rahel Khan and Share Ali started the chase aggressively but their departure meant they fell short by 12 runs. Everyone in the team will need to fire in unison for the Swedes to get back to winning ways.
