Defending champions Catalunya CC (CTL) take on Hawks (HAW) in the fifth match of ECS T10 Barcelona 2021 at the Ibrahim Videres Cricket Ground in Girona on Wednesday, November 3.
CTL vs HAW Dream11 prediction
Catalunya CC, despite finishing fourth in the group stage of ECS T10 Barcelona 2020, walked home with the trophy after edging past Falco CC by 11 runs in the final. Considering this, CTL will start as favourites for Wednesday’s contest.
Hawks, on the flipside, could muster just one win in the previous edition and will hope to make the best of the first meeting between the teams this season.
CTL vs HAW Dream11 team tips for ECS T10 Barcelona 2021
Top tip: Best batter
Muhammad Armghan Khan anchored CTL’s batting in their championship-winning run last term, and is expected to continue that trend this time around. The 40-year-old has amassed 519 runs in his ECS career so far, out of which 141 runs have come in 2021. Muhammad Armghan Khan’s career strike rate of 184.04 makes him an undroppable option for fantasy players.
Top tip: Best bowler
CTL bowler Ali Azam finished among the top 10 leading wicket-takers in ECS T10 Barcelona 2020 with 11 scalps and he will be keen to open his 2021 account in style at the earliest. Picked by just 13.24% fantasy players for this match, Azam could be a differentiator and prove his doubters wrong with a match-winning spell against HAW.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
HAW all-rounder Muhammad Sohail was one of the few positives in the Hawks’ ECS T10 Barcelona 2020 campaign, with 144 runs and four wickets in seven games. He will be eager to have a similar impact in the upcoming season, which is why fantasy players could consider picking Sohail as a differential player who can turn the tide of a contest in his team’s favour.
As for a wicket-keeper, one can go with HAW gloveman Kamran Zia. He has accounted for 233 runs and six dismissals (four caught, one run-out, one stumping) in his ECS career and will hope to reward the 7.71 per cent fantasy players who have chosen him in their team ahead of Wednesday’s fixture.
