In the 1st match of ECS T10 Vienna, Pakistan CC will take on Bangladesh Austria at Seebarn Cricket Ground on Monday.
Austria’s most successful cricket club, Pakistan CC, are coming off a successful campaign at the ECS Vienna 2020 tournament. They looked unstoppable when they lifted the title last summer and will be aiming to continue their winning run this season as well.
Their spin bowling all-rounder Sikander Hayat will play a key role for Pakistan CC. He picked up 11 wickets for his side in their title victory last summer.
On the other hand, Bangladesh Austria went winless in the ECS Austria T10 last season. However, they will look to turn the tables when they take on the giants Pakistan CC this time.
Hassan Ashfaq has been a phenomenal player with the bat and had an excellent strike rate of 212+ last season for Austria CC. He can chip in a few overs whenever needed by the team.
Going into this contest, Pakistan CC will have an upper hand but Hassan Ashfaq’s addition to Bangladesh Austria makes them a good enough side as well.
