La Manga Torrevieja, 2020 East Coast and Central League T20 champions (ECCL), will face Minhaj, Spain's ECL20 qualifiers, in a best of three play-off for the right to represent Cricket España at ECL21 this May and June in Spain.
Asked about his side's chances, LMT captain Adam Alger said: "We are very positive. Despite our lack of game time, we back ourselves to do the job."
Preparations have obviously been made tricky due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but Alger was not going to use this as an excuse.
“With the current situation, we've all been doing any drills possible in our own homes. We've been having regular zoom team meetings to keep mentally prepared. We've also combined our fitness training plan with raising money for three charities,” Alger said.
LMT squad is littered with current members of the Spanish national team, including Alger, Ravi Panchal, Paul Hennessy, Jack Perman and Tom Vine.
The talented Rumistrzewicz brothers, Charlie and Theo, along with Connor Wood are all integral to the under 18 national team set up.
