Another week, another ECS T10 tournament! The T10 action moves from Bologna to Venice as the ECS T10 Venice gets underway. Five top Italian teams will be battling it out in this tournament. A total of 24 games will be played over six days, with the final scheduled to be played on April 3.
Venezia will lock horns with Padova in the opening match of the ECS T10 Venice at Venezia Cricket Ground on Monday.
Venezia were phenomenal on their ECS debut in November, where they topped Group B having won five of their six games. They fell to a 6-wicket defeat in their semi-final match against Royal Roma Cricket Club. The Nazmul Haque-led side will be determined to go one step further and lift the ECS T10 Venice trophy this time around.
Padova, on the other hand, had a dismal tournament run in November in ECS Rome. They managed to bag only two wins from their six games and thereby finished at the penultimate position in Group A. Nuwan Sameera & co will be hoping for a change of fortunes in the ECS T10 Venice.
Venezia will start as favorites to win this game against Padova on their home turf.
All in all, an enticing day of fast-paced cricketing action awaits at the Venezia Cricket Ground, with both teams looking to start their tournament run on a high note.
