The 1st match in the ECS T10 St Gallen, 2020 will be played between Zurich Nomads CC and Zurich Crickets CC at the Grundenmoos in St Gallen.
The match starts at 9:00 AM local time (12:30 PM IST) (7:00 AM GMT).
This game can be streamed live on Fan Code.
The ECS T10 St Gallen will kick start on Monday when Zurich Nomads CC and Zurich Crickets CC will clash off in the first of the five matches to be played in the day. Zurich Nomads CC will be involved in first two matches of the day as they face Olten CC soon after the tournament opener. Zurich Crickets CC will have a rather busy day as they play a total of three matches on Monday. They will conclude the opening day by taking on St Gallen CC and Winterthur CC respectively in the matches starting at 3 PM and 5 PM local time respectively.
No threat from the weather is expected for the opening match of the ECS T10 St Gallen.
The Grundenmoos in St Gallen will be hosting the T10 competition on a matting track. Hence, we might see pretty high totals similar to that of the Stockholm T10 which took place last week. The match will start at 9 AM local time but the synthetic track is unlikely to take a hit.
Average first innings score: 131 (T10 competition matches in 2019)
Record of chasing teams: Won – 2, Lost – 5

Selecting captain and vice-captain from the same team is not advisable in fantasy cricket. Especially in T10 format where this strategy works only when we have two extraordinary individual performances. Faheem Nazir and Azeem Nazir of Zurich Nomads CC are such players who could make this move work. Both the players have got an exceptional record with the bat and also done well with the ball as well.
Zurich Nomads CC is likely to get the tournament underway with a comfortable victory.
