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.
Four-tiime Italian champions Milan Kingsgrove are one of the leading clubs in Northern Italy, where Fabio Marabini, Italian Cricket Federation President, enjoys playing the game. Despite falling short of major honours last term, Milan Kingsgrove will be one of the favourites at FanCode ECS Italy Milan, starting Monday.
Milan Kingsgrove didn't particularly enjoy their debut when going winless in Rome with player unavailability hitting hard. However, there were mitigating circumstances with the absence of star all-rounder and captain Thari Fernando. Playing in their own city in famiilar conditions, Milan Kingsgrove will be a more powerful outfit with talented Italy captain Joy Perera another player to watch here.
The esteemed lady President is Thilini Kariyawasam, the daughter of Italy’s former wicketkeeper and current assistant national coach Kamal Kariyawasam. Kingsgrove Milan have a strong Sri Lankan connection, but have evolved into one of the most multicultural teams in Italian cricket. Michele Battista Comi, a lively character, is the "Italian Pavel Florin" and is currently filming a documentary called "Scemo di Cricket" - "cricket-mad."
FACT OF THE DAY: Joy Perera is the leading runscorer for Italy in T20I's having scored 208 runs at average of 34.66 at a strikerate of 144.44 from his 8 matches.https://t.co/XcSIwRw4nL - Home Of European Cricket @Dream11@the_fancode@FedCricket#EuropeanCricketFamilypic.twitter.com/LfZbisTqpL— European Cricket (@EuropeanCricket) May 4, 2020
