PSV vs MTV Dream11 prediction
One of the more seasoned teams in the ECS T10 tournament, MTV Stallions have gone about their business with authority this season. They finished Group A as the table toppers, winning seven out of the eight games and finished with 14 points. Their only defeat in this campaign has come against 1.Kieler HTC in a group match.
PSV, on the other hand, were the second-best side in Group B as they won five of their eight matches to finish with 10 points. While there is not much to separate the teams, it wouldn’t come as much of a surprise if MTV were to get the better of PSV in the second semi-final.
PSV vs MTV best players to pick for ECS T10 Kiel 2021 fantasy team
Top Tip: Best batsmen
MTV's star batsman Basit Orya will be the best bet for any fantasy team owner. The player has hit 12 boundaries and five sixes this season, tallying 123 runs in seven matches at a strike rate of 148.19.
PSV skipper Gulraiz Mustafa's 61-run knock in 28 balls was the catalyst to PSV's robust start in the quarter-final. He hit five boundaries and six maximums to help his side put up a total of 121 runs.
Top Tip: Best bowlers
Prakash Singh can be the pick of the bowlers from the MTV camp, especially after his economic spell against VFB on Friday. The bowler took two wickets in two overs and conceded just four runs. Singh has six wickets in the last five matches and has a tally of 369 fantasy points.
PSV bowler Safi Awalkhan was the best bowler for his side during the crunch quarters clash as he ended with figures of 3/6 in two overs. The 21-year-old is expected to continue his wicket-taking form in the semi-finals as well and add to his tally of 542 fantasy points.
Top-Tip: Best all-rounder and wicketkeeper
PSV's Gulraiz Mustafa is a good all-round option to pick going into this fixture. The 34-year-old is a recognised bowler for his side and his economic spells frequently force batsmen to throw away their wickets at regular intervals.
MTV wicket-keeper Sachin Mandy has been a handy middle-order batsman for his side, chipping in with runs in double figures for his side frequently. He has 248 fantasy points so far and is expected to be a point-getter for fantasy team owners.
PSV vs MTV probable playing XI
MTV Stallions playing 11 (probable): Suraj Motilal, Basit Orya, Prashanth Potharlanka, Sachin Mandy (wicket-keeper), Mohammad Faruq Arabzai, Brijesh Prajapati, Gaurav Rathore (captain), Iftikhar Yakoob Ali, Srinu Tumpara, Thomas McGuinn, Ujwal Gadiraju
PSV Hann-Munden playing XI (probable): Matiullah Yousafzai, Asad Sangari (wicket-keeper), Imran Hafiz, Adeel Ahmad, Safi Awalkhan, Gulraiz Mustafa (captain), Junaid Javed, Sajed Jabarkhel, Wahid Muhammad, Wali Khan, Amin Zadran
