Preview - FanCode ECS Malta - Group B
FanCode ECS Malta provides an opportunity for ten leading Maltese teams to showcase their skills on the magnificent island of Malta, contesting 48 games over 12 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.
Apart from Overseas, Group B is stacked with newcomers as Mater Dei, Gozo, Super Kings and Swieqi United will all make their much-anticipated ECS debuts.
Overseas recovered from a sluggish start to win four games at our final tournament of last season. Overseas have a much stronger look about them this season with some new signings on board, and will aim to carry on that improvement to go deep at FanCode ECS Malta.
Super Kings look the best equipped to go deep in the competition after dominating the Malta cricket scene of late, finishing first and second in the league for the past two seasons. Super Kings are most definitely the team to beat in Group B and strong contenders for the title on debut.
Gozo are the newest team on the block and find themselves with a nigh on impossible task in Group B. In their first ever game of competitive cricket, Gozo suffered a monumental loss against mighty Super Kings, creating a whole host of unwanted records in the process. Both Swieqi United and Gozo are definitely on a very steep learning curve in this tournament and will struggle to compete with more experienced sides.
