10 top teams from Western Germany feature over 12 days in 48 hotly-anticipated T10 matches from the new home of German cricket in Krefeld. Every game will be live streamed worldwide on the European Cricket Network and on FanCode - a multi-sport aggregator platform, from the house of Dream Sports for the Indian Sub-Continent.
Featuring Germany internationals Asad Mohammed and Sahir Naqash, Bonn Blue Star will be on many people’s shortlists for success too, especially if repeating the successful winning formula from the T20 state championship in 2020, their fourth sucess at state level to go with national T20 honours in 2010.
Founded in 2003, BBS boast an outstanding record in T20 cricket and will be able to transfer their skills to be strong contenders in the high-octane T10 format as well.
