European Cricket Series Barcelona, November, 2020

REPORT: Pak I Care, Bangladesh Kings and Catalunya CC locked in three-way jam at European Cricket Series Barcelona

European Cricket Series Barcelona provides an opportunity for nine Catalonian teams to showcase their skills at the Montjuic Cricket Ground (MCG) adjacent to the 1992 Olympic baseball venue. Badalona Shaheen CC, Bangladesh Kings CC, Catalunya CC, Catalunya Tigers CC, Falco CC, Fateh CC, Minhaj CC, Pak I Care and Raval Sporting CC will contest forty exciting T10 games over two weeks. Every game will be live streamed on FanCode - a multi-sport aggregator platform, from the house of Dream Sports for the Indian Sub-Continent, and for rest of the world on Sports Flick, a global OTT platform, that allows you to watch live sport on demand.

Pak I Care handed Catalunya CC their first ever defeat at the European Cricket Series Barcelona.

Unbeaten champions at the first time of asking and boosted by the best talent from Pak Montcada, Catalunya CC posted an imposing 123 on the back of a cracking innings of 61 off 24 balls from Naveed Islam. In reply, Pak I Care’s explosive opener Muhammad Ihsan got his side off to the usual rapido start with 41 off 16 balls, before skipper Muhammad Babar finished the job with a timely 42 off 18 balls. With the impressive chase, Pak I Care move to the top of the standings by virtue of a superior net run rate, deposing Catalunya from top spot in the process.

Bangladesh Kings bagged two convincing wins to move level on six points with the frontrunners. Sofiqul Islam snared four wickets to restrict Badalona Shaheen to a modest 95, which the Kings chased down comfortably with eight balls remaining. In the final match of the day, the Kings posted a mammoth 158 against Minhaj with Asjad Butt, another Pak Montcada player at the previous ECS, blasting 72 off 28 balls. In reply, Minhaj were never in with a sniff and closed 42 runs short.

Minhaj did manage to get off the mark earlier in the day with a win against Falco, who have now slipped to three straight defeats. Falco racked up a decent 112, but Minhaj's Jafar Iqbal saw his side home with an unbeaten 53.
