Likely Opening Bowlers: Tirlochan Singh, Harkamal Singh

Kuldeep Lal ended top run scorer at the very first European Cricket Series in Alicante, also chipping in with vital wickets as the Pinatar Pirates progessed to the final. That high-pressure T10 experience, held him in good stead as the Spanish international blasted a century for Gracia at the opening ECS Barcelona. Kuldeep also played a key role for Badalona Shaheen in their excellent ECS outings with both bat and ball. In a sign of his growing maturity, Kuldeep will skipper Gracia at FanCode ECS Spain Barcelona.
Gurwinder Bajwa smoked a magical century off 32 balls as Gracia grabbed their first win. Gurwinder will be one to watch as the tournament progresses.
Mukhtiar Singh, all-rounder with international experience, possessing match-winning capabilities with his death overs and fearsome hitting.
Paramjit Singh picked up key wickets as Gracia grabbed their long-awaited first win.
