The European Cricket Network live broadcasts the 2020 European Cricket Series Frankfurt encounter between Frankfurt CC and Türk FC Hattersheim am Main.
Tune in to the live action Monday from 9am CEST * 8am UK * 7am GMT * 12:30pm IST from the Frankfurt Oval in Germany.
Team Preview for Frankfurt CC
Frankfurt CC were unlucky to go winless in their previous ECS appearance in July, going down in close encounters every time. They will hope to make a statement in the opening match of this series.
Captain: Alim al Razy
Main Wicketkeeper: Wamaq Syed
Alishan Mohmand will open the batting and looked to be their most dangerous batsman back in the July series. He has been in strong form domestically and will hope to carry that form into this week. He is a powerful striker of a cricket ball.
Tanzil Tariq will bat number four and is a six-hitting specialist! Frankfurt CC will hope he faces enough balls to do maximum damage.
Hasan Nauman will open the bowling and was their leading wicket-taker in July with six victims in three appearances at an outstanding economy rate of only 5.16.
Team Preview for Türk FC Hattersheim am Main
Türk FC Hattersheim am Main stormed all the way to the final in the previous European Cricket Series Frankfurt, going down to MSC Frankfurt in that match. They will be buoyed by that success and would love to go one better this week.
Captain: Abdul Hamid-Bhatti
Main Wicketkeeper: Shahid Ahmed
Fazal Bashir lived up to his name in the previous series and was the leading run-scorer across all teams in July. He is quite a classical batsman who can strike boundaries without taking too many risks. He will lead the charge with the bat for the Turks.
Yasir Mehmood-Sheikh was among the best performers for Türk FC last time around. His economy rate of 7.75 in four matches was very impressive on the small ground in Frankfurt.
Inaam Ullah will open the batting and look to go over the top in the powerplay. He will also contribute with the ball so he is a very influential player for the Turks.
Mr Maximo’s tip: TÜRK FC HATTERSHEIM AM MAIN
These teams played a very close match when they played in the European Cricket Series back in July, with Türk FC edging out Frankfurt CC on that occasion. They also have the edge in domestic encounters recently, so I favour Türk FC Hattersheim am Main to be victorious in the first match of five on the opening day of European Cricket Series action in Frankfurt. Don’t miss a ball on ECN!
