AUM vs SOC Dream11 tips for ECS T10 Malta

Top Tip: Best batsmen

The American University of Malta will depend on their middle-order batsman Zoheb Malek to come good against Southern Crusaders. After scoring 62 runs in the first three innings of the tournament, Malek has been dismissed for consecutive ducks. He will look to return to form and put on a strong performance for his side.

For the Crusaders, opener Ryan Bastiansz will be the batsman to watch out for. The 35-year-old has aggregated 100 runs in five innings at a strike rate of 144.92. Bastiansz will be eager to provide a blitzkrieg start against AUM on Tuesday.

Top Tip: Best bowlers

In the bowling department, Shubh Patel has been the wrecker-in-chief for AUM, picking five wickets in as many matches. Patel will play an important role if the American University of Malta are to bag full points in the upcoming matches.

Meanwhile, Jojo Thomas has been the standout bowler for the Southern Crusaders in ECS T10 Malta 2021. The 31-year-old has claimed eight wickets in six matches and he is likely to add few more wickets to his name against AUM.

Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper

As far as all-rounders are concerned, one must pick SOC’s Zeshan Yousaf as the star all-rounder in their fantasy cricket team. Yousaf has contributed with both bat and ball in the ongoing edition of the T10 tournament.

For the wicket-keeper spot, picking Darshit Patankar over Gopal Thakur is a no-brainer. Patankar is currently the second-highest run-scorer in ECS T10 this campaign, amassing 193 runs in six matches at an average of 48.25. He has been equally impressive behind the stumps.

AUM vs SOC probable playing XI

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