Malo (MAL) will face Punjab Lions Nicosia (PNL) in Group E Match 11 of European Cricket League 2022 at the Cartama Oval in Malaga on Wednesday, March 9. The match will start at 1:30 PM IST.
MAL vs PNL Dream11 prediction
Punjab Lions Nicosia secured their first win of the ECL 2022 Group E schedule in their previous game, and they will enter Wednesday’s match as slight favourites against Malo.
PNL bounced back from their loss to Pak I Care Badalona with a seven-wicket win over Farmers whereas Malo have lost all their three games thus far. Needless to say, PNL is likely to come out on top on Wednesday, judging by recent form and momentum.
MAL vs PNL Dream11 team tips for European Cricket League 2022
Top tip: Best batter
Najam Shahzad of MAL is a must-have player for this encounter. The Malo skipper has scored 61 runs in three games so far, with a best score of 30 against GEK. With 146 fantasy points, Shahzad is guaranteed to have an instant impact in the upcoming contest.
Top tip: Best bowler
Amir Zaib is an outright pick for a bowler in your fantasy team. The pacer has picked five wickets and grabbed a 3/18 in his team’s eight-wicket loss to HBS Craeyenhout. He will be in a confident frame of mind heading into the upcoming encounter and will fancy his chance against PNL.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Gurpartap Singh of PNL is our top recommendation for an all-rounder. The 28-year-old has accrued 85 runs as well as a wicket in two matches and he seems poised to be a game-changer in the MAL vs PNL contest. Singh, with 166 fantasy points, is available for 9 credits.
For the wicket-keeper spot, consider going for Roman Mazumder. The PNL wicket-keeper has one caught dismissal in comparison to MAL’s Jayesh Popat who has not affected any dismissals so far from behind the stumps. Roman has scored 600 runs in 27 ECS matches, which goes to show he’s capable with the bat if called upon.
MAL vs PNL probable playing XI
MAL playing XI (probable): Umar Farooq, Syed Maisam, Conrad Greenshields, Najam Shahzad (c), Jayesh Popat (wicket-keeper), Aamer Ikram, Amir Zaib, Asim Sarwar, Saim Ali, Muhammad Naveed, Adnan Gondal
PNL playing XI (probable): Gurpartap Singh (captain), Roman Mazumder (wicket-keeper), Neeraj Tiwari, Tejwinder Singh, Scott Austin, Qasim Anwar, Sushil Kumar, Taranjit Singh, Harvinder Singh, Chamal Sadun, Vikram Verma
