The European Cricket League (“ECL”) is the Champions League of European cricket. Founded by Daniel Weston, Roger Feiner, Frank Leenders and Thomas Klooz and hailed as a cricketing equivalent of the UEFA Champions League, the second-staging - ECL21 - will be played in May and June in Spain.
GROUP B: Forfarshire - Scotland, HBS Craeyenhout – Netherlands, Bjørvika - Norway, Ostend Exiles – Belgium, Lund - Sweden
Group B - June 7 - June 11
Scottish champions Forfarshire and HBS Craeyenhout of the Netherlands have all the cricketing credentials to battle it out for top spot in Group B.
Norway champions Bjørvika will especially enjoy a Nordic battle against Sweden’s Lund. The Swedish side will be massive underdogs in the group and look to spring a surprise or two, along with Ostend Exiles from Belgium, who will cherish the opportunity of playing a “Low Country” derby against HBS Craeyenhout.
Reigning Kings V.O.C. Rotterdam from the Netherlands will automatically qualify for Finals Week, accompanied by a trio of group winners and highest net run rate (NRR) second place finisher from the opening three weeks.
