Six top Italian sides Baracca Prato, Bologna, Cricket Stars, Kings XI, Pianoro and Royal Parma feature over six days in 24 explosive T10 matches from beautiful Bologna. 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.
Founded in late 2019, Cricket Stars did not enjoy ample opportunity to impress due to the pandemic in 2020. A new team from the Modena region, CRS will be on a steep learning curve in the FanCode ECS Italy Bologna, although the explosive T10 may suit Cricket Stars style more than the longer format.
