Southern Crusaders face favourites Overseas - get fantasy tips for ECS T10 Malta Encore
Overseas (OVR) will take on Southern Crusaders (SOC) in the seventh match of ECS T10 Malta Encore, 2021 at the Marsa Sports Club in Malta on Tuesday, November 23.
OVR vs SOC Dream11 prediction
Overseas will face Southern Crusaders in the penultimate game on the second day of ECS Malta T0 Encore 2021. Overseas were the finalists of ECS Malta T10 2021 and they will be looking to go a step further by clinching the trophy this time around.
Meanwhile, Southern Crusaders had an underwhelming season in ECS Malta T10 2021, winning just three of their eight group matches. Given the depth of their team, anything but a playoff spot will be a disappointment for them.
With that in mind, it’s worth mentioning that Overseas are favourites to win this encounter although Southern Crusaders are more than capable of springing a surprise.
OVR vs SOC Dream11 team tips for ECS T10 Malta Encore 2021
Top Tip: Best batter
Charl Kleinepunte of OVR is a top pick for this encounter. The southpaw was the leading run-getter for Overseas in ECS Malta T10 2021, scoring 177 runs in seven matches at a whopping strike-rate of 158. He is likely to play a pivotal role in Overseas’ campaign and is a must-have pick at 9.5 credits.
Top Tip: Best bowler
Jojo Thomas of SOC will be a great inclusion in the bowlers’ category. The off-spinner was the leading wicket-taker for Southern Crusaders in ECS Malta T10 2021 with 12 scalps in nine matches with a dismissal almost every sixth ball. Thomas’ ability to stifle the opposition with his canny pace variations makes him a lethal option especially at the fag end of the innings.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Zeshan Yousaf of SOC is the best all-round option for this encounter. The 35-year-old had a good ECS Malta T10 2021, scoring 99 runs in eight innings at a strike-rate of 121. With the ball, the pacer took five wickets at an economy of 8.94. Yousaf’s all-round potential could be key for Southern Crusaders in this match.
Amongst the wicket-keepers, picking Heinrich Gericke of OVR in your fantasy team is a no brainer. The South African smashed 142 runs at a strike-rate of 245 in ECS Malta T10 2021 and is likely to open the batting this time too. On his day, Gericke can take apart any bowling lineup in the world. The right-hander is also a neat gloveman and is expected to fetch plenty of fantasy points through his keeping skills as well.
