Group B boasts the current top five teams from the ongoing T20 Swedish League championship. With all five teams closely matched, expect some high-octane T10 cricket over the next five days.
Nacka enjoyed a phenomenal run at Dream11 European Cricket Series Botkyrka, Stockholm 2020 winning six games on the trot to lift the coveted trophy. Boasting some big hitters in their ranks, NAC is currently the top T10 team in Sweden and are the team to beat in Group B.
Alby Zalmi CF succumbed to eventual winners Pakistanska Forening in the semifinals of Dream11 European Cricket Series Stockholm 2020. ALZ ended up winning the Bronze Final to finish third overall. However, Alby Zalmi CF are in good form this year with five straight wins in the ongoing T20 Swedish League and are strong contenders to lift the FanCode ECS Sweden Stockholm trophy.
Marsta were impressive at Dream11 European Cricket Series Botkyrka, Stockholm 2020 finishing second in Group B. MAR eventually finished fourth after falling to eventual winners Nacka in the semi-final and then to Saltsjobaden CC for Bronze medal honours. Marsta will be hoping to secure a podium finish at least this time around.
Djurgardens IF enjoyed an outstanding run at Dream11 European Cricket Series Botkyrka, Stockholm 2020 with a 4-1 win/loss record. DIF fell short at the final hurdle against eventual champions Nacka, but will aim to go one better to add to their two National T20 titles.
Making their debut, Huddinge are the only team without previous ECS experience in Group B. However, Huddinge are a strong team after luring a few players from previous winners Nacka, and will be keen to stamp their authority on the competition.
