Match Abandoned
In the latest developments, the match has been abandoned due to wet outfield and bad weather looming on the cards. We had a rather damp day, which was quite visible, considering the matches were going on a start-stop basis. With this match ending, the top 4 teams will play the finals day tomorrow in what shall be a bright sunny day for a cricket match. That's all we have in store for you as my colleague, Maanas Upadhyay and I, Lavil Saldanha sign off. GOODBYE AND GOOD NIGHT!

Toss Update:

American University of Malta have won the toss and elected to bat
Welcome Ladies and Gentlemen to Sportskeeda's live coverage of the European Cricket Series Malta T10 League, 2020. The thirtieth match of the tournament will pit the Marsa CC against the American University of Malta at the Marsa Sports Club. 

Marsa CC began their campaign with a bang, beating the Msida Warriors by 34 runs in their first encounter. Their reverse-fixture against the same opposition was washed out and they had to settle for just one point on the table. They followed that up with twin wins over the Overseas CC, beating them both times by 41 runs and 36 runs. 

However, their unbeaten streak ended once they locked horns against the Atlas UTC Knights CC with the latter crushing them by 8 wickets and 27 runs in the two matches that they played against them. Matters suddenly seemed to be going downhill for them as the Southern Crusaders CC crushed them twice by 5 wickets and 10 wickets respectively. 

A low on confidence Marsa CC side made a strong comeback earlier today as they edged past the American University of Malta by 13 runs in a rain-curtailed game. They will surely be looking to capitalise on the win and secure another one on the trot against the same opposition that they beat earlier today and gain some momentum going into the playoffs. 

On the other hand, the American University of Malta tasted defeat straightaway in the tournament, losing their first fixture against the Atlas UTC Knights CC by 4 wickets. They were defeated by the Souther Crusaders CC in their next two encounters by 7 wickets and 6 wickets while Msida Warriors obliterated them by 31 runs. However, they made a brilliant turnaround as they edged past the Msida Warriors by 2 wickets in a tightly contested game. 

They could not carry forward their winning momentum as the Overseas CC handed them two defeats by 25 runs and 5 wickets respectively. Earlier today, they once again lost to the Marsa CC by 13 runs. This has been quite a horrible tournament for them and despite having no chance of qualifying for the knockout stages, they will be looking to finish off with a win. An interesting match awaits us and expect some big fireworks on display here. 

So sit back, relax and enjoy as I, Maanas Upadhyay, and my partner, Lavil Saldanha, bring to you all the live action that unfolds in Malta over the course of the next couple of hours or so. 
Stay tuned for the Team Sheets and the Toss Update!
