The 20th match in the ECS T10 St Gallen, 2020 will be played between Winterthur CC and Power CC at the Grundenmoos in St Gallen.
The match starts at 5:00 PM local time (8:30 PM IST) (3:00 PM GMT). The match can be streamed live on Fancode.
Winterthur CC saw a couple of mixed results in the last couple of days. While they won their fixture against Zurich Cricket on 22nd and St. Gallen the next day, Olten CC outplayed them in all departments yesterday. Nevertheless, the side will be confident enough to face Power CC, who have registered some stellar scores in the tournament batting first. Their only defeat of the tournament came against the powerhouses in Olten CC, otherwise they have been as spectacular as one could’ve asked for. Their batting strength gives them a clear edge over their opponents for Thursday.
Weather conditions in St. Gallen are brilliant for a game of cricket, with temperatures ranging from 13-26 degrees during game time.
The pitch has been pretty decent for batting in St Gallen. The teams have been scoring around 95-100 runs consistently and scores around that mark are being chased down comfortably.
Average first innings score: 98 (Based on last five games)

Osama Mahmood is a powerful striker of the ball who has also been picking big wickets. He registered 81 runs in his last three knocks at a strike-rate in excess of 180 to go with three wickets. Deesh Banneheka picked up a five-fer in two overs the other day, which clearly indicates he is capable of getting one or two regularly.
Bashir Ahmed Khan is another fine all-rounder who registered a brilliant 17-ball 27 the other day and picked two wickets in his last two games. He could be tried as a captain in the grand league. Saqib Ali comes with great international experience and will be a pivotal pick.
Asad Mahmood is another important player in the Power CC’s batting lineup, he registered a blazing 17-ball 52 in their previous game. Sufyan Cheema is another decent pick, the 33-year-old registered a 9-ball 16 and 15-ball 25 in his last two knocks.
Aamar Siddique Butt picked up three wickets in his last three games, including a match-winning 2/15 spell against Zurich CC. Diyon Johnson too picked up four wickets in his last three outings, making him a must in both small and grand leagues.
