The first semi-final of the ECS T10 Brescia will see Janjua Brescia take on Brescia CC at the JCC Brescia Cricket Stadium on Saturday.
Brescia CC were one of the more impressive teams in the league phase, with the likes of Muhammad Jafri and Faisal Shah starring with both the bat and ball. Although they couldn't finish atop the table, Brescia CC will head into the semi-final high on confidence. They beat the Pak Lions in their last outing.
Janjua Brescia have also impressed in recent games, despite resting a few key players. But they will start the semi-final against Brescia CC as underdogs because the latter possess the experience of winning trophies on the ECS circuit. Although they came up second-best in both league encounters against Brescia CC, Janjua Brescia will fancy an upset in what promises to be a cracking game of cricket on Saturday.

Date & Time: 17th April 2021, at 12:30 PM IST

A good batting surface is expected, with some help on offer for the bowlers as well. As seen in previous ECS T10 Brescia games, the ball should move around a bit, keeping the batsmen on their toes. As the game progresses, the spinners will also come into play. Both teams will look to bat first upon winning the toss, with 120 being a match-winning total at the venue.
