Catalunya CC will square off against Kings CC in the second semi-final of the ongoing ECS T10 Barcelona 2020 tournament. Both teams are coming into this game with win streaks behind them and are looking in superb form.
Catalunya CC are the only team in the ECS tournament (across both groups) who have not lost a single game so far. The Muhammad Armghan Khan-led side have won seven games in a row in the ECS this season. They have racked up some huge scores and have won every game batting first, with each of them being by big margins.
Meanwhile, Kings CC have also been in good form in the ECS. They won two games in a row to start their campaign before losing to Fateh CC. However, that was their only hiccup, and since then, they have won four games in a row. Moshiur Rahman and his Kings CC side have been excellent while chasing, with five of their six games in the ECS this season coming while batting second.
Considering the same, a riveting contest could be on the cards. Catalunya CC have won every game while defending whereas Kings CC have excelled while chasing.
