Black Caps (BCP) will lock horns with Limassol Zalmi (LIZ) in the ninth match of ECS Cyprus 2021 at the Ypsonas Cricket Ground, Limassol on Wednesday, November 10.

BCP vs LIZ Dream11 prediction

At the time of writing, Black Caps and Limassol Zalmi had played two and one game respectively with both sides registering wins in their matches. Black Caps, in particular, looked to be at their lethal best in both their matches after an underwhelming ECS T10 Cyprus Encore 2021. Meanwhile, Limassol Zalmi are a strong side on paper and will hope to get past an in-form Black Caps side. 

There is nothing much to separate between the two teams on paper however given their current form, Black Caps hold a slight edge over their opponents.
