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.

Led by the talented Malta National team captain, Bikram Arora's charges will make a debut at FanCode ECS Malta, having not featured last year in the opening edition held on the beautiful island.
The majority of the squad have represented Malta at international level, so Super Kings will look to demonstrate the hard attacking brand of cricket that they have become known for in Maltese cricketing circles. Players to especially watch out for are the exciting duo of Varun Prasath and Affy Khan. Both players can take away the game from opponents in the blink of an eye. With the ball, Ashok Bishnoi is always an handful, swinging the ball away from batsman at pace.
