POR vs SPA PREVIEW:
The Iberian Cup 2019 is all set to hit the grounds with the first fight to be fought between Spain and Portugal. It will be a Tri-series and the third team to be a partaker is Gibraltar. Among these teams, Spain is the only one having experience to play the T20I games. The last time Spain was a part of the 3-match series was in March and hosted Malta.
Spain won that series by a score of 2-0 as the 3rd match got abandoned. Afterward, in August too, Spain got a chance again to be a part of the series and the team once again took the series. There they fought against Finland. Finland won the opening match and that too with a huge run difference of 82 but when Spain came back, they literally washed-off its opponent and snatched the title from Finland. On the other end, if we’ve got a look at the Portugal, the team only had won one single match out of the 5 matches in the T20 CWC Europe Region Qualifier A, last year.
