In Match 39 of the ECS T10 Barcelona League, Skyways will take on Barcelona Gladiators at the Montjuic Olympic Stadium on Wednesday.
Both debutants are yet to get off the mark in the ECS points table.
Skyways, who have a decent roster in place, came up second-best to both Raval Sporting and Bangladesh Kings on Monday, which leaves them rooted to the bottom spot.
Meanwhile, Barcelona Gladiators lost their only ECS game to Khairan, although they gave a good account of themselves. Nevertheless, Arslan Muhammad and co. will hope for a better performance, as they seek to climb up the ECS points table.
The Gladiators will hold the edge in this ECS game owing to their superior batting unit. But Skyways, with their potent bowling attack, did run Raval Sporting close. With the pitch likely to slow down later in the day, a great game in the ECS could beckon at the Montjuic Olympic Stadium.

Match: Skyways vs Barcelona Gladiators, Match 39.

Venue: Montjuic Olympic Stadium, Barcelona.
With this game being the fourth of the day, the pitch could be on the slower side; with 80-90 runs likely to be a par-score.
There is some uneven bounce off the surface, which the batsmen should be wary of early on. There is expected to be some lateral movement available for the pacers too.
Both teams will ideally want to bat first and make first use of the conditions.
