European Cricket Series Iceland T10: Full squads, Fixtures & Preview: All you need to know
It is now time for Iceland cricket to take a plunge into the European Cricket Series sea, with the nation set to host seven T10 matches over the next weekend.
Unlike many places where the ECS has been to, Iceland actually has a functioning domestic circuit. The country recently hosted the Íslensk Premier League 2020 in which the quality of cricket was of quite a decent level.
ECS Iceland T10 League comprises Iceland's top three domestic cricket teams, Reykjavik Vikings, Kopavogur Puffins and Hafnarfjordur Hammers. The league begins on August 1, with the final scheduled to be played the next day.
Each team will play four matches each in the group stage, after which the top two teams will take on each other for the ECS Iceland T10 League trophy.
All the seven games of the ECS Iceland T10 will be played at the Vidistadatun ground in Reykjavik, Iceland. Kopavogur Puffins are expected to end as the champions.
Here are the squads of the participating teams:
Hafnarfjordur Hammers - David Abew-Baido, Abdur Rehman, Jakob Robertson, Omar Sabi, Sammy Gill, Javed Hussain, Sulaman Nainaz, Kali Nazar, Lee Nelson, Nolan Williams, Fida Wur and Mohammad Younas.
Kópavogur Puffins - Abhishek Chauhan, David Cook, Leslie Dcunha, Mohit Kotian, Dushan Bandara, Lakshitha Bimsara, Keenan Botha, Olafur Briem, Sampath Kumar, Ramachandran Gujapan, Gabriel Maksimov and Sathiya Rupan.
