Preview - FanCode ECS Malta - Group A

Royal Strikers are the only new team in Group A with the rest boasting previous ECS experience. Rebranded this season, RST competed in their debut season of Malta domestic cricket as Paola Boys CC last term. 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.

Atlas UTC Knights finished top of the standings during the group stages of the 2020 European Cricket Series Malta, the only unbeaten side with seven wins. However, Knights came unstuck in the all-important game, losing the crunch Final to Marsa and will be looking to go one better this time around.

Southern Crusaders secured second spot in the group stages with six wins, but fell at the semi-final hurdle to Marsa who timed their run to absolute perfection. After only four wins in the group stages in ten games, Marsa marched to victory following two strong knockout showings at crunchtime.

American University of Malta CC enjoyed a promising debut season in Maltese cricket in 2020. AUM won only one game on debut, but did come out on the wrong side of a few close finishes and will be looking to improve in 2021 from that initial learning experience.
