FanCode ECS Malta provides an opportunity for ten leading Maltese teams to showcase their skills on the magnificent island of Malta, contesting 48 games over 12 days. 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.
Royal Strikers are the only new team in a tough looking Group A with the rest of the teams all boasting previous ECS experience.
Royal Strikers were rebranded this season having previously competed in their debut season of Malta domestic cricket as Paola Boys CC.
Royal Strikers are inexperienced, but have already shown bags of potential playing some entertaining cricket. The explosive T10 format may suit their style of cricket.
