It is match number seven in the European Cricket Series Barcelona (ECS) November 2020, and Minhaj CC run into a dominant Catalunya CC side. The former lost their only game on the first day, while Catalunya CC won both of theirs.
Minhaj CC were no match against Pak I Care in their first game of the tournament. The former could muster just 46 runs in their 10 overs batting first, and just couldn’t get going. With the ball, they leaked a lot of runs and the game ended with 5.5 overs to spare.
On the other hand, the defending champions Catalunya CC have started this tournament in smashing form. They ran through Bangladesh Kings CC with relative ease and then beat Badalona Shaheen CC in a high-scoring game. Hence, they seem to be a powerful side and will be favourites for this game.
