Atlas UTC Knight (AUK) lock horns with American University of Malta (AUM) in the 11th match of ECS T10 Malta 2021 at the Marsa Sports Complex on Wednesday, June 16.

The two teams, placed in Group A, have won two games this season and find themselves toward the top of the tabe. 

AUK vs AUM Dream11 prediction

While both teams have produced positive results so far, what puts AUM in the driver’s seat is their individual quality. The team has shown all-round quality, meaning that they have been brilliant with both ball and bat. AUK, on the other hand, aren’t behind by much, but AUM have a slight edge over them.

AUK vs AUM Dream11 team tips

Top tip: Best batsmen

Samuel Stanislaus of AUK is a smart option to have from his team. The opening batsman has scored 57 runs at 28.50, and this includes six fours and three sixes. Judging by the form he is in, he remains a must-have player for this match.

While there are a few firm contenders from AUM for this place, a certain Zoheb Malek pips all given his consistency. The middle-order batsman might not have accumulated high totals, but he has indeed delivered in crunch situations. 

Top tip: Best bowlers

AUK’s Bose Paul is his team’s go-to bowler and top wicket-taker so far. The bowler has maintained a respectable economy and remains one of the safest bets for this game.

Darshanik Gohil of AUM delivered a sumptuous spell in the opening game of the season, picking three wickets for a solitary run in 1.2 overs. The 27-year-old is expected to be his team’s most potent weapon with the ball and fantasy managers are rightly advised to keep him in their team.

Top-tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper

AUM’s Amandeep Ralhan might have scored fewer runs than expected so far, but the all-rounder has made up for that with the ball in hand. The 36-year-old has been amongst the wickets and kept things tight.

As far as the wicket-keeper is concerned, AUM’s Darshit Patankar beats his competition quite easily. The wicket-keeper already has a half-century to his name, besides also affecting three run-outs and two catches. A worthy candidate for your captaincy.

AUK vs AUM probable playing XI

AUK playing XI (probable): Ciril Mathew, Samuel Stanislaus, Al Ameen Abdul, Justin Shaju, Manoj Salikumar, Nithin Babu, Sujesh Appu (captain), Jameel Muhammed, Bose Paul, Vishnu Shaju, Ajay John (wicket-keeper)

AUM playing XI (probable): Saneesh Kumar, Amandeep Ralhan, Darshit Patankar (wicket-keeper), Zoheb Malek, Darshanik Gohil, Ravi Paul, Nishit Bhatt, Mitul Patel, Shubh Patel, Jit Patel (captain), Tarak Shah
