Friendship CC (FRD) will look to get past Fighters CC (FIG) as they search for lost form in match 16 of ECS T10 Cartaxo 2021 at the Cartaxo Cricket Ground in Portugal on Thursday, September 9.

FRD made a promising start to their ECS T10 Cartaxo campaign with two wins but faltered in the next couple of matches. They have to rediscover their mojo if they want to progres to the latter stages of the tournament.

FIG, meanwhile, have endured mixed fortunes until now with a win and a loss against their name at the time of writing. 

FRD vs FIG Dream11 prediction

Even though the contest isn’t one-sided, FRD do have a slight edge over FIG. Friendship CC have a well-balanced squad and will know that they can get the better of Fighters CC if their players perform to their potential. 

FRD vs FIG Dream11 team tips for ECS T10 Cartaxo

Top tip: Best batsman

Gagandeep Singh holds the key for FIG in the batting department. He scored a fluent 24-ball 40 versus Wild Panthers and also played a small cameo against Coimbra Knights. If he gets going, the opposition tends to run for cover and that’s why he qualifies as a fantasy favourite with willow in hand.

Top tip: Best bowler

Rana Sarwar has proven to be a trump card for FIG in the two matches they have played so far. He has taken three wickets in total and has been instrumental in providing breakthroughs for the side. Fantasy team owners can certainly bank on his consistency.

Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper

FRD all-rounder Md Abdul Motin is a brilliant fantasy pick for his contest. Be it with the bat or ball, he is able to have a say on the outcome of the game. His bowling figures of 4/15 versus Malo and a quickfire 27 with the bat against WLP has already made him a fantasy favourite.

Gavie Dhillon comes across as a smart wicket-keeping pick for this match. The FIG gloveman scored a 15-ball 18 against WLP and is due a big knock. He is extremely neat behind the wickets and fantasy enthusiasts might want to place their bets on him.

FRD vs FIG probable playing XI

FRD playing XI (probable): Mohammad Asad, Mizu Rahman (wicket-keeper), Md Nazrul Islam, Md Abdul Motin, Imtiaz Rana (captain), Taher Hossain, Rayhan Khan, Mohammad Musa, Sajjad Hossin, Md Reodan Jaman, Nazmul Hasan

FIG playing XI (probable): Rana Sarwar, Balwinder Singh, Imran Rao, Deepu Mansurpuria, Gagagndeep Singh, Mandeep Singh (captain), Gavie Dhillon (wicket-keeper), Varinder Virk, Ravi Ravi, Ravinder Singh, Gurwinder Singh
