Nine leading Italian sides, Albano, Bergamo, Bergamo United, Bogliasco, Fresh Tropical, Milan, Milan Kingsgrove, Milan United, Pioltello United feature over six days in 24 high-octane T10 matches from magical Milan. 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.
Proven ECS teams in Bergamo CC and Bergamo United will be the teams to beat at the FanCode ECS Italy Milan, starting Monday 5 April.
Bergamo United went all the way in the European Cricket Series Rome in November, winning in some style in the Final against Royal Roma, who of course, reigned supreme recently at the FanCode ECS Italy Rome.
Bergamo CC finished runners-up at the European Cricket Series Rome in September, topping their group ahead of some decent sides, including Kings XI who were only last week crowned champions at FanCode ECS Italy Bologna.
Milan Kingsgrove will definitely improve on their miserable debut last year when going winless at the same ECS eventually won by Bergamo United.
Newcomers Fresh Tropical, Albano, Pioltello United, Milan United, Bogliasco and Milan CC are all making their debut and will look to spring a surprise or two along the way. With some proven T10 talent in their ranks, Albano, Bogliasco and Fresh Tropical look best placed to cause a shock or two and push for a spot in the knockout stages.
