LIVE SCORES - Italy vs Germany - Match 1
Germany made their international debut in 1989 in a two-match bilateral series against Denmark as West Germany. Germany cannot call on a full-strength squad for ECC21, but will be serious contenders to make it to Championship Week, boasting numerous talented players that have made their mark in ECN events over the last couple of years.
Germany's captain in the European Cricket Championship 2021 is Rohit Singh. Husnain Kabeer will don the wicket keeping gloves for the team.
Yasub Muhammad, Shoaib Azam, Rohit Singh, Husnain Kabeer are the leading batsmen for Germany while Zadran Nasrullah, Shahir Malikzai are their top bowlers. In the spin department, Abdul Shakoor Rahimzei is their go-to option.
Italy has been an associate member of the ICC since 1995. Ranked 26 in the ICC Men’s T20Is team rankings, Italy are not quite at full-strength as they will feature in the upcoming European regional qualifiers for the 2022 T20 World Cup.
Boasting some proven performers from ECS events over the last two years, Italy will be a strong side and will be one of the favourites to progress through to Championship Week.
