Germany lock horns with Sweden (GER vs SWE) in the second match of the ECI German T20I Tri-Series 2022 on Thursday, 9 June, 2022. The National Performance Centre in Krefeld, Germany, will host this fixture.
Germany did not have a successful run at the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifier, which they participated in recently. They finished bottom of Group A having lost all three of their matches. However, they finished the tournament with a win in the seventh-place play-off against the Philippines, beating them by nine wickets. This is the second match of the tournament for Germany.
Sweden, on the other hand, last played T20I cricket in August 2021. They toured Finland for a four-match series. Sweden lost their first two games. However, they came back to sign the series off on a positive note with wins in the final two T20Is.
Sweden are the third team in the ECI German T20I Tri-Series after Germany and Austria. Sweden will aim to start well and this is an important game for them going ahead in the tournament.
