In match 46 of the ECS T10 Barcelona 2020 competition, an in-form Pak Montcada CC takes on bottom-placed Joves Units CC. The campaigns for both teams couldn't have been more contrasting; Pak Montcada CC have won three and lost one game while Joves Units CC have won just one of their four ECS games.
This is the second game on the bounce for Pak Montcada CC, who have been in very good form in the ECS this season. They have dominated in almost every game; even the one they lost was only by a very slim margin (four runs). Undoubtedly, Pak Montcada CC have the momentum, but they need to continue the same and win all their remaining games to stay in contention for a semi-final spot.
Joves Units CC started the ECS season with a thrilling one-run win against Hira CC Sabadell. However, since then, they have lost their three subsequent matches by big margins. That means that they are now out of the race for the semi-finals and will only be looking to play spoilsport and end the tournament on a high.
