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.
Crowning an ultra-impressive debut, newcomers Fresh Tropical pulled off a major upset in the Final to dethrone Bergamo United and become Champions.
Captain Muhammad Imran was adjudged Man of the Series for his consistent performances with the bat.
Favouring chasing throughout the tournament, Fresh Tropical never allowed Bergamo United's batsmen to score freely by picking up wickets regularly. Chasing 74 to win the trophy, FT started off very poorly, losing four wickets in the powerplay. However, Mahash Javed held the innings together as FT reached the target with an over to spare.
Earlier in the day, Bergamo United took derby honours, holding off a spirited chase from local rivals Bergamo CC who crashed out of the tournament following the loss. Bogliasco clinched a last ball thriller against Albano in the last group match to progress through to the Eliminator, where they sucummbed to eventual winners Fresh Tropical.
After magnificent Milan, we move to beautiful Brescia for another exciting week of FanCade ECS Italy action, starting Monday.
