Match 50 of the ECS T10 Barcelona League has Minhaj taking on the Barcelona Gladiators at the Montjuic Olympic Stadium on Friday.
Minhaj currently top the group with three wins in four games. Even in the lone game they lost, they nearly chased down 148 against Khairan. With their fate still in their hands, Minhaj would love to seal a playoff berth with a win in this fixture.
Their opponents, the Barcelona Gladiators, have blown hot and cold so far with only one win in three games. They come into this game with a solid win against Skyways, but they have their hands full against the much-fancied Minhaj CC side. Although they head into this game as the underdogs, the Barcelona Gladiators have a strong batting unit which can cause Minhaj a few problems.
With both sides eyeing a crucial win here, another cracking game beckons in the ECS T10 Barcelona League 2021.

With this being the final match of the day, there should be enough help on offer to keep the bowlers interested. The ball should skid on to the bat, but variable bounce should keep the batsmen on their toes. There isn't much turn on offer for the spinners, who have a small margin for error. Batting first is the ideal option, with 90-100 being a competitive score at this venue.
