Current Form Germany:
Germany have won their last game against Denmark by 6 wickets.
Denmark won the toss and elected to bat first. Saif Ahmad played a nice knock up the order and smashed 23 quick runs. His innings featured a huge six and a singular boundary. The other top order batters lost their wickets at wrong times and Denmark found themselves in a bit of bother. Freddie Klokker in the middle order made 29 off 28 balls to lift the momentum but despite his efforts, Denmark could only reach 110 for 6 in 20 overs. Vishnu Bharati picked up 2 wickets for 15 runs.
Chasing 110, Germany lost their in-form batter Talha Khan early on in the innings. He was dismissed for a duck. Post his departure, Michael Richardson and Faisal Mubashir revived the innings with their match winning partnership of 58 runs for the 2nd wicket. Richardson made 31 off 37 deliveries while Mubashir scored 36 off 37 balls. Dieter Klein and Harmanjot Singh provided the finishing touch as Germany chased the total in the 19th over with 6 wickets in hand.
Current Form Italy:
Italy lost their last match to Jersey by a high margin of 41 runs.
Jersey won the toss and elected to bat first. The start for Jersey wasn't ideal as they lost the first wicket in the second over itself. Harrison Carlyon along with Zak Tribe batted really well and took Jersey out of trouble. However, these two got out at important junctures and Jersey were struggling really bad when Benjamin Ward came to its rescue. He smashed 33 off just 18 balls to take his team past the 130 run mark to 139 for 5 in 20 overs.
Chasing 139, Italy scored 7 runs without the loss of any wicket in the first over. Their problems started from the 4th over when Harrison Carlyon was introduced to the attack. He picked up the important wicket of Nikolai Smith. Carlyon bowled fantastically and picked up 1 wicket at the cost of just 7 runs in his spell of 3 overs. The middle order of Italy could never got going as the captain Grant Stewart was dismissed for a duck. Benjamin Ward tightened the screws for Italy and picked up 2 wickets for 17 runs to help bowl Italy out for 98, as Italy lost the match by 41 runs.
