Match 3 of the ECS T10 Barcelona League has Minhaj CC taking on Pak I Care at the Montjuic Ground on Monday.
Both teams play their first game of the tournament with high expectations upon their shoulders. Minhaj CC are the favourites for this game, since they have a well-rounded squad filled with explosive all-rounders. They have been doing pretty well in the domestic circuit and would love to get off to a rollicking start in this tournament.
Much is expected of the likes of Alumdar Hassan, whose batting exploits could be pivotal for Minhaj against a solid Pak I Care team, which also boasts of a power-packed batting unit. However, lack of experience goes against Pak I Care, and they carry the underdog tag ahead of this fixture.
Either way, both teams would be looking for a winning start to this ECS tournament in what should be a cracking encounter at the Montjuic Ground in Barcelona.

Match: Minhaj CC vs Pak I Care, Match 3
Date: 9th November 2020, at 5:00 PM IST
Venue: Montjuic Ground, Barcelona
The Montjuic Ground is a relatively high-scoring venue, with some help on offer for the bowlers. Although the dimensions of the ground go against them, there is ample movement available off the surface, which should make for a competitive clash between bat and ball.
Teams will look to attack from ball one given the nature of the surface, although they need to be wary of the odd ball keeping low. All in all, both teams will look to bat first, with 90-100 being a competitive total at this venue.
