England XI (ENG-XI) lock horns with Italy (ITA) in match 7 of the European Cricket Championship T10 2021at the Cartama Oval in Malaga on Tuesday, September 28.

ENG-XI vs ITA Dream11 prediction

ITA scored a big total in their previous match but were unable to defend it. England, meanwhile, won their opening match of the tournament comfortably and will be feeling confident heading into Tuesday’s clash against Italy. The Dan Lincoln-led team bowled out Germany for a paltry total of 55 runs in their first match and they are expected to produce a similar performance against Italy.

ENG-XI vs ITA Dream11 team tips for European Cricket Championship 2021

Top tip: Bests batsman

ENG-XI’s Harrison Ward is a tough batter to get the better of if you are a bowler. The opener scored almost 75 percent of his team’s total against Germany and his 18-ball 41 included two fours and a whopping four sixes. He ended up accumulating 69 fantasy points from that match and is likely to add to that tally as the tournament progresses, making him a wise pick in your fantasy team.

Top tip: Best bowler

At 8 credits, Alex Russell of ENG-XI is a steal. The 19-year-old young prodigy was simply unplayable against Germany and picked three wickets for four runs in his 1.2 overs. His return of 117 fantasy points from that match was the highest by any player and one can expect more of the same from him come Tuesday.

Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper

ITA’s Amir Sharif should be your all-rounder for this match. The 29-year-old was one of the top performers for his team against Germany as he scored 24 runs off just eight deliveries. He picked up four wickets in his two overs as well and will have a big role to play if Italy want to come away with a favourable result from this contest. 

ENG-XI captain Dan Lincoln could be your wicket-keeper for this match given that he is likely to score runs in this competition despite a below-par start with the bat. He’s also neat behind the stumps and should be a part of most fantasy teams.

ENG-XI vs ITA probable playing XI

ENG-XI playing XI (probable): Harrison Ward, Dan Lincoln (captain and wicket-keeper), Tom Bevan, Alex Mellor, Luke Webb, Andy Rishton, Sam Pearce, Euan Woods, Rich Edwards, Zaman Akhter, Alex Russell
