Championes, Championes, Ole Ole Ole! Having come a cropper in the opener, Minhaj came back to easily win the next two to clinch the FanCode Spanish Championship and qualify for ECL21 on home soil.

Minhaj make a comeback to win FanCode Spanish Championship and qualify for ECL21

In the decider, Minhaj never allowed LMT batters a chance to dominate and a score of 74 always looked 20-30 runs too light. In reply, nerves were always going to be a factor given the prize on the line. However, despite losing a couple of wickets early on, Minhaj always looked in control on the chase. Jafar Iqbal saw his side home, well supported by opener Usman Mushtaq early on.  

Scorecard Decider Match 3

Earlier, La Manga Torrevieja held on for a narrow win in the opening game. With Minhaj in control on the chase, 15-year-old Charlie Rumistrzewicz turned the game on its head for LMT. The talented left-arm spinner conceded just one run in the eighth over, as well as picking up a prize wicket. Spain international Ravi Panchal made up for his earlier bowling woe, taking three stunning boundary catches as LMT snatched victory from the jaws on defeat.

Scorecard Match 1

Minhaj hit back with a vengeance, making no mistake to win the next two games and seal a much-coveted spot at ECL21 on home soil.
