In the first game of day four of this European Cricket Series (ECS) Malta 2020, Marsa CC will be up against a winless Overseas CC. This is the 11th match of the tournament and both of these teams have had contrasting starts.
Out of the two games, Marsa CC have had so far, one was abandoned and in the other, they won convincingly. They beat Msida Warriors CC by 34 runs after they had racked up 117 batting first. They are currently placed third on the points table and they will look to build on this start.
On the other hand, Overseas CC have played four games and they’ve lost all four of them. In the first two games, they failed to defend scores and in the latter two, they couldn’t chase either and fell 12 runs short on both occasions while chasing 108 and 88 respectively. They desperately need to turn things around and the Jurg Hirschi-led side need to pull up their socks quickly.
