It's the last of the Group B league matches of the ECC and Romania will be up against Austria. Just like Portugal, Romania too are struggling to find their feet in the ECC and this being the last of the group stage games, they will be eyeing to finish off with a win and progress into the next stage of the ECC.

Romania got belted for 200 in the ECC game against Netherlands XI and the bowlers were taken apart. Clayton Floyd scored a blistering century. Romania's weak link is their batting as they haven't been able to post anything in excess of 100 in the tournament. Even if they progress to the next stage the chances of them reaching the finals look bleak.

Taranjeet Singh has done well on a few occasions and he's got a fifty to his name in the tournament. Gohar Manan, who opens the batting, needs to find his form as well but the rest of the batting has looked clueless. Sivakumar Periyalwar is another player to watch out for in this game. He can be sublime once he gets going. Ijaz Hussain and Sami Ullah have been amongst the wickets for them and Vasu Saini along with them has done well in the ECC.

Austria, on the other hand, hasn't put a foot wrong except for that one loss against Netherlands XI. Zeeshan Goraya, Iqbal Hossain, Razmal Shigiwal and Mirza Ahsan, the top four batters are their superstars. Especially Razmal Shigiwal and if he gets going there's no stopping him.

On the bowling front they have the likes of Sahel Zadran, Shahil Momin and Mark Simpson-Parker who all have been amongst the wickets. The reason why Austria are on the number two spot on the points table is because of their discipline in bowling. Austria will be looking to notch up another win to solidify their position on the points table and take the momentum into the ECC Qualifiers.
