It’s the last day of the group stage in the ongoing ECS T10 Barcelona 2020 tournament. The first game of the day, which is the 53rd match of the tournament, is a dead rubber, where bottom-placed Gracia CC face Joves Units CC. Both teams are coming off wins in their last games but are not in semi-final contention.
Gracia CC lost four games in a row and looked down and out very early in the tournament. Three of those losses were by huge margins. However, they did manage to pull one back in their last game against Men in Blue CC, chasing down 73 runs with four balls to spare. If they win both their remaining games, they will finish in fifth spot in the ECS Group B points table.
On the other hand, Joves Units CC started their campaign in the ECS this season with a thrilling one-run win over Hira CC Sabadell before losing four games in a row. They did record a thumping 76-run win against Men in Blue CC in their last game, though. With the game against Gracia CC being their last in the ECS this year, Joves Units CC will be aiming to end on a high.
