Catalunya Tigers CC and Hawks CC will square off in the penultimate Group A game (match 51) of the ongoing ECS T10 Barcelona 2020 tournament. It is a dead rubber as both teams don’t have a chance of making it to the knockouts.
Catalunya Tigers CC started off the ECS tournament in a promising manner after thrashing Bengali CC by 60 runs. However, in the next four games that followed, they managed to win just once and subsequently fell out of the semi-final reckoning. The game against Hawks CC is the first of two successive games for Catalunya Tigers CC; winning both games will see Hawks CC finish third in the points table.
Hawks CC haven't been up to the mark in the ECS this season. Either side of successive losses, they have won just once. This will be the second game on the bounce for Hawks CC; a win in either of the games will ensure that they won't finish with the wooden spoon in Group A.
