Introducing Budapest Blinders (BUB) FanCode ECS Hungary
FanCode ECS Hungary provides an opportunity for five teams to showcase their skills, contesting 24 games over six days. Every game will be live streamed worldwide on the European Cricket Network and on FanCode - a multi-sport aggregator platform, from the house of Dream Sports for the Indian Sub-Continent.
Formed only this year, Budapest Blinders are bound for an ECS debut, buoyed by an air of expectation.
BUB can boast a brilliant all-rounder in Steffan Gooch, holder of amazing ECS record bowling figures of 6-2 from last summer and cousin of England legend Graham Gooch, arguably the most prolific run scorer in the history of the game. Certainly handy Gooch family genes to have up your sleeve at FanCode ECS Hungary. Captain of the side, and primarily a top order bat, Gooch may also keep wicket this campaign to spread the bowling load.
Gooch will be supported though by national team players Nishantha Liyanage, Maaz Bhaiji, Ali Yalmaz, Asanka Weligamage and Sandeep Mohandas in an exciting, fresh lineup.
Regular Captain: Steffan Gooch
Regular Wicketkeeper: Maaz Bhaiji
