Ranked 40th in the ICC T20 World Rankings going into the tournament, Belgium are only behind Norway in the rankings in Group A. Boasting a host of proven ECS performers, all comfortable in this high-octane format, Belgium will quietly fancy their chances of progressing to Finals Week in October.

Boasting a long history of playing international cricket dating back to 2003, Luxembourg are the lowest ranked of the sides in Group A in the ICC T20 rankings at 54, but although slight underdogs, Luxembourg have absolutely nothing to lose.
Luxembourg's captain in the European Cricket Championship 2021 is Tony Whiteman. Akhilesh Kumar will don the big gloves for the side. He can also get help from Whiteman from time to time if the skipper fancies the wicket-keeping gloves.
Roshan Paul Vishwanath, Thomas Martin, Tony Whiteman, Aanand Pandey are the leading batsmen for Luxembourg while Raju Akulwar, Amit Dhingra, Ansh Trivedi are their top bowlers.
