It’s time for the knockouts in the European Cricket Series (ECS) Barcelona November 2020 tournament as a rampant Pak I Care face an in-form Badalona Shaheen CC in the first semi-final.
Pak I Care have been the best team in the ECS so far. They have lost just once in eight games to top the points table. They are currently on a six-match winning streak and are looking unstoppable. Sikandar Ali and his men have been utterly dominant as well; most of their wins have been by big margins.
However, if there is a team that could stop Pak I Care, it is Badalona Shaheen CC. They are the only team to have beaten Pak I Care in the ECS this season. Badalona Shaheen CC also have momentum on their side, as they have won their last four games and five of their last six. They may not be favourites for this game, but they may be counted out at one's own peril.
