Tournament Review - FanCode ECS Hungary

Reigning champions Royal Tigers completed a stunning title success by overcoming Budapest Blinders in the finals of Fancode ECS Hungary. 

We look at some key stats from the tournament.

Team scores

Royal Tigers enjoyed a middling tournament in terms of scores racked up with United Csalad and finalists Budapest Blinders both faring better. ROT, however, were elite in run-chases as reflected from the stats.

Finals day

Finals day saw the most runs scored and had some remarkable run-chases where teams chased hundred-plus scores quite comfortably. With a better wicket to bat on, the chasing team went all guns blazing in each game on Finals day. Only the qualifier 2 saw the team batting first win the game. 

Six hitting was also at its peak with as many as 28 sixes coming in qualifier 1 where ROT chased down 141 against Budapest Blinders.

Over the course of the week, there was no significant difference between batting first and chasing targets. 13 matches were won by the team batting first and 11 by the chasing side. 

Powerplay batting

Royal Tigers smashed the most runs in a single powerplay (49) with BUB making 47 in another game. Overall, the only team to not make a 40-plus powerplay score was BLB.

Boundary hitting

The shorter the format, the more important boundary hitting is and this was certainly true at Fancode ECS Hungary. ROT hit the most average sixes per match and also the most average sixes when chasing down targets. The eventual champions, however, focused more on aerial shots and scored fewer fours on average compared to all teams except BLB.

Mode of dismissals

A whopping 62.2% of the dismissals in the tournament were caught out. A further 21.1% were out bowled.
