BBL vs SOC Dream11 prediction

Bugibba Blasters face Southern Crusaders in the first game on Wednesday. At the time of writing, both sides had made an identical start to their ECS T10 Malta Encore 2021 campaign with a win and a loss. With some experienced and proven match-winners in their ranks, both sides will look to get on the right side of the result in the upcoming clash. 

With that in mind, it is difficult to predict an outright winner between the two evenly matched teams although Bugibba Blasters hold a slender advantage given their convincing seven-wicket win against Overseas in their last outing. 

BBL vs SOC Dream11 team tips for ECS T10 Malta Encore 2021

Top Tip: Best batter

Faiz Ullah of BBL is a top pick for this encounter. The Pakistan national has made a good start to the tournament with 73 runs in two innings, including a fifty against a formidable Overseas side. The 31-year-old has already scored 115 fantasy points and is a good budget pick for 8.5 credits. 

Top Tip: Best bowler

Bilal Khan of SOC will be a great inclusion in the bowlers’ category. The left-arm pacer has picked three wickets in two matches so far at an miserly economy rate of 1.50. The 23-year-old is also handy with the bat and can score at a brisk rate at the fag end of the innings. Selected by 89 percent of fantasy users, Bilal Khan is a must-have pick for this game. 

Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper

Zeshan Yousaf of SOC is the best all-round option for this encounter. The right-arm pacer picked 3/8 against Msida Warriors a couple of days ago and played a pivotal role in Southern Crusaders’ win in a low scoring encounter. Although the 35-year-old has not fired with the bat this season, he contributed with 99 runs in eight innings at a strike-rate of 121 in ECS Malta T10 2021. At 8.5 credits, the Southern Crusaders captain is a worthy choice for this match. 

Amongst the wicket-keepers, picking Gaurav Maithani of BBL in your fantasy team is a no brainer. The Indian national is amongst the top run-getters in the ongoing ECS Malta T10 Ecore 2021 with 77 runs in two innings at a whopping strike-rate of 226. He has scored 149 fantasy points already this season and at 10 credits will be a valuable addition to fantasy teams.
