Belgium cricket team strikes a pose
Belgium will lock horns with Spain in the 14th match of ECC T10 at Cartama Oval, Cartama on Wednesday.
Belgium are oozing with confidence after their hat-trick of victories in the tournament. They are currently at the top of the points table. All three of their wins have come in dominant fashion.
It all started with a 64-run win over Italy. Later, they defeated Austria by 34 runs, while their most recent victory was against England XI by seven wickets.
Meanwhile, Spain are having exactly opposite fortunes as they are yet to win a game in the competition. Spain have played four matches, lost all of them and are reeling down in the points table.
It will be a tough ask for Spain to clinch a victory against the table toppers in this contest.
