Malta (MAL) will face Hungary (HUN) in the playoffs for fifth place in the ICC World T20 Europe Qualifier C at the Belgian Oval in Gent on Saturday.
Malta did not have the expected result from the tournament. They did not make it to the playoffs as they only won one of their three games and were ranked third in Group B. Malta will now look to finish their campaign on a positive note with a win on Saturday.
Hungary, on the other hand, have yet to win a game in the competition, having lost all three. The likes of Mark Des Fontaine and Harsh Mandhyan would be keen to put up a better performance and help their team end the season with a win.
