In the first match of the ECS T10 Krefeld, VfB Gelsenkirchen will be up against Koln Challengers at the Bayer Uerdingen Cricket Ground on Monday.
VfB Gelsenkirchen was formed in 2018 when a social group of refugees turned themselves into a talented batch of cricketers. In the DCB Moneygram T20 WDCV 2020 tournament, Mirwali Jabarkheel and Mubashir Hussain lead their batting and bowling charts respectively, with 190 runs and 19 wickets from nine innings each.
Meanwhile, Koln Challengers have cricketing talents from different countries like India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan. They have been the Bundesliga champions on 12 out of the previous 18 occasions and are looking strong enough to stamp their authority in the ECS T10 Krefeld.

Although there is not much on offer for the bowlers, the spinners might get some assistance from the pitch in the second innings.
