Overseas CC and the American University of Malta will go head-to-head in the 20th match of the ECS T10 Malta 2020 on Tuesday. Overseas CC are not having the greatest of tournaments, as they have already lost all of their 6 games and are placed at the bottom of the table. They are still finding ways to win their first game of the tournament. Overseas CC will need to improve in all the departments and execute their game plans well if they want to win their remaining matches.

On the other hand, the American University of Malta are just above Overseas CC in the standings with 3 points in their bag. Their only win of this tournament came against Msida Warriors CC in the previous game, where they won by 2 wickets in the last ball of the match. Zoheb Malek was the man of the match for his all-round performance. This win should give them enough confidence for qualifying for the knockouts by winning their remaining fixtures.
