In match number 25 of this European Cricket Series (ECS) Malta 2020, Msida Warriors CC will take on Overseas CC. Both teams are coming into this game on the back of contrasting results in their respective recent games.
Msida Warriors CC lost their last game but their overall performance in this tournament has been decent. They have won three out of their five completed games so far and are currently fourth on the points table with seven points. A win here may see them book a spot in the top four.
On the other hand, Overseas CC finally got off the mark in this tournament. They won two back to back games against the American University of Malta and seemed to have given themselves an outside chance of reaching the top four. For that, Jurg Hirschi and his men need to beat Msida Warriors CC in both the games and hope that either of Msida Warriors CC or Marsa CC lose all their four remaining games.
