Italy vs Denmark Match Pitch Report
Bowlers will enjoy bowling at Desert Springs Cricket Ground, Almeria and the batsmen are going to find it difficult to score runs at this pitch.
Italy Team Preview
Gareth Berg will be the Captain of Italy team. Jade Dernbach who plays for English County Derbyshire and has represented England in international Cricket also has joined Italy team. He will be a big motivation for Italy as he has quite a lot of experience of bowling in ODIs and T20s. Another Italian origin player, Grant Stewart who represents English County Club Kent has also been added to the Italy team and will have the opportunity to show his bowling talent in this tournament.
Captain Gareth Berg has plenty of talent in his bowling and batting to provide enough motivation to the Italy team and he can set up an example with his quality all-rounder performance.
Denmark Team Preview
Denmark won the T20 Series against Sweden by 2-1, Hamid Shah and Taranjit Bharaj were the star performers for the team with the bat but they are not playing the T20 World Cup Qualifiers. The absence of these two batsmen has weakened the batting attack of Denmark. So the Denmark bowlers like Delawar Khan, Lucky Ali, and Amjad Khan will have to step up and take the responsibilities on their shoulders.
Zameer Khan who scored a lot of runs for the team in the series against Sweden is the batsmen to watch out for in this match against Italy. He will be confident with his performance in the last series and can disappoint the Italy team bowlers.
