Match Abandoned Due To Rain
That's all the live-action we could gather as my colleague, Pratyush Rohra, and I, Lavil Saldanha sign off. Do keep checking Sportskeeda for all live sporting action and the latest sports news. Until next time, it's goodbye from our side. SEE YA!
The latest update coming from the Montjuic Ground is that the game between City Lions and the Ripoll Warriors has been abandoned. Both teams will have to walk back now sharing a point 
Points shared won't do either side any good here. Both these sides needed the two points to keep their campaign alive but as it stands, both the Lions and the Warriors will be heading home. The onus now will be on the Barna Royals, who need to win their two games today if they want to dethrone Pak I Care at the top of the table and the two sides face each other in the final game of the day in what could be a decider for the playoff spot.
UPDATE: There have been incessant showers at the Montjuic Cricket Ground and due to that the game has been halted. Chances of a truncated game are still alive. Let's hope for a good news from the ground 
Weather update : The rain gods have had no mercy so far but we should have an update in around 15 minutes.
Toss update : City Lions have elected to bat first.
Hello and welcome to SportsKeeda's coverage of match number 52 of the ECS Tournament, where the City Lions will take on the Ripoll Warriors.

City Lions have played three games so far but have managed to win just one. They started their campaign with a 10-run defeat against Barna Royals before pulling a seven-run win against Pakcelona. However, Pak I Care didn't let them build up on that win as they beat City Lions comfortably in the latter’s third game. City Lions will be eyeing some consistency going forward and they need to win nearly every remaining game to stand a chance of qualifying for the knockouts.

As for the Ripoll Warriors, they sit in third place on the table with two wins from four games. They won their first two games on the first day, beating Pakcelona and Ripoll Warriors. They had a shocker of a day as they got thumped by Barna Royals and Pak I Care. They need to win this match for them to have a chance to qualify for the playoffs.

The Montjuïc Olympic Ground in Barcelona has produced some solid tracks to bat on and teams have racked up big scores when they have batted first. Moreover, teams batting first have had more success and have won 29 games so far when compared to the 17 that have been won by chasing teams. Thus, teams will want to bat first if they win the toss and 100 seems to be the par score for teams. 

We enter the third week of the tournament and things will start to get a little spicy as we close in towards the end of the group stages. An exciting encounter to look forward to as my colleague Lavil and I, Pratyush take you through all the action that unravels in Barcelona.
