Now, we’re set for another historic beginning as the European Cricket League (ECL) kicks off today in Spain which is said to be the cricket equivalent of the UEFA Champions League, with players from 18 different nations participating between 29-31 July, 2019.

Multiple matches will be played daily as 8 teams will be split up into groups of 4 each. 17 matches will be played in the T10 format and the winner will be the ‘Kings of Europe’.

  • This is the first ever match in ECL T10 history.
  • 86*, 59, 30, 56 – Max O’Dowd’s last 4 international score’s vs Zimbabwe.
  • 7 wickets in 4 games vs Zimbabwe recently – Pieter Seelaar.

VOC Rotterdam

There will be a number of  familiar faces in this team as a few of them have been seen in action for the Netherlands international senior team. Opening the innings will be Scott Edwards and Max O’Dowd and both of them make my fantasy team, the former as the wicket-keeper option. Born in Australia, Edwards scored 44* in the 2nd ODI against Zimbabwe to take his country to a 3-wicket victory recently.

As for O’Dowd, he had a string of brilliant scores in both T20s as well as ODIs against Zimbabwe including 3 fifties and a lowest score of 30. 7 wickets as well as handy knocks with the bat against Zimbabwe recently made Pieter Seelaar one of the most important players in that tour and we expect him to have even more importance here. Go heavy in top order picks as this is a T10 format and lower order batsmen won’t get much of a hit.

Dreux Cricket Club

Zahir Ammar and M Nisar are likely to open the innings for Dreux Cricket Club, with the former having played for France national side as well. However, he is a wicket-keeper and we’ve already selected our keeper, so pick Nisar instead. If they play anything like their namesake from Pakistan, pick the Afridis, Afridi Yaseen and Afridi Ishaq.

Like we said earlier, all-rounders are key and Niaz Hamza becomes one of my first choices in the Dreux side, having vital contributions while playing for the France national side in the past. Don’t miss him in your PlayerzPot (Use Code “READ1234”) fantasy team as his last international game vs Austria saw him scoring 15 and picking up 3/40.
