An assertive Gorkha 11 (GOR) side will take on the challenge poised by Coimbra Knights (CK) in match 20 of ECS T10 Cartaxo 2021 at the Cartaxo Cricket Ground in Portugal on Friday, September 10.

GOR are placed second on the points table at the time of writing. They have won two matches and lost one with a total of four points in their kitty. Only Wild Panthers who are unbeaten in this tournament are above them in the standings.

CK, on the other hand, have lost three and won just a lone match out of the four they have played so far. They are languishing at the bottom of the table and desperately need a win to get back in the semi-final reckoning. 

GOR vs CK Dream11 prediction

The contest appears to be quite one-sided, both on paper as well as recent performances. GOR are a well-refined unit and they have all the tricks up their sleeves to get past CK who are having a below-par campaign and have been far from their best.

GOR vs CK Dream11 team tips for ECS T10 Cartaxo

Top tip: Best batsman

Miguel Stoneman has the potential to be a dark horse for CK. He hasn’t found his moment with the bat yet but has the potential to deliver big and fantasy players would be wise to back him despite his failure to put his best foot forward in ECS T10 Cartaxo so far.

Top tip: Best bowler

Rahul Bharadwaj established himself as a reliable bowler for GOR in the last two matches. He took 2/17 versus Oeiras and chipped in with a wicket against Malo. Such consistency will surely impress fantasy enthusiasts as he makes for a reliable option.

Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper

Imran Khan is an all-rounder who can be a game-changer for GOR. He accounted for a wicket each in his last two matches and can be a thorn in the side of the opposition. Furthermore, he also hammered a 26-ball 51 versus MAL to showcase his batting firepower.

Suman Ghimire is a strong candidate in the wicket-keeping category for this match. He struck a belligerent 35-ball 69 for GOR versus MAL and is quite effective behind the wickets too. Fantasy players could do with him in their ranks.

GOR vs CK probable playing XI

GOR playing XI (probable): Suman Ghimire (wicket-keeper), Imran Khan, Harjit Bhatia, Amandeep Ghumman, Saddam Akbory, Absar Alam, Lakshman KC, Rinku Singh, Arslan Naseem, Madhukar Thapa (captain), Rahul Bhardwaj

CK playing XI (probable): Amit Kumar, Andrew Winter, Chris Redhead (captain), Faisal Bashir, Girish Singh, Junaid Khan, MD Zaman (wicket-keeper), Miguel Stoman, Mubeen Tariq, Stephen Waddell, Vikas Kumar
