ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Europe Qualifier Match 11, Germany vs Italy: Probable 11s, pitch report, weather forecast, match prediction and live streaming details
The penultimate league stage fixture of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup European Qualifiers will pit Germany against Italy on Thursday, October 21, at the Desert Springs Cricket Ground in Almeria.
Germany have had a decent campaign so far and currently sit second in the points table with three wins to their name from five fixtures. Italy, on the other hand, are placed third with just two wins to their name.
Germany come into this match on the back of a win against a weak Denmark side. Batting first, the German side posted 119 runs on the board, losing five wickets in the process.
Denmark came quite close to chasing the target down. However, the German bowlers held their nerve and got over the line. They bowled the Denmark side out for 107 runs, handing them a 12-run defeat in the end.
Meanwhile, Italy were beaten by a formidable Jersey outfit. After being invited to bat first, Italy managed to post only 100 runs on the board as their batters failed to put in a decent performance.
It was a cakewalk for Jersey as they comfortably chased down the target in the nineteenth over with eight wickets in hand. Italy will need to put in an improved performance if they are to get the better of Germany in this contest.
