HUN vs POR Dream11 tips for European Cricket Championship 2021
Top Tip: Best batsman
Hungary’s Zahir Safi Mohammed will be the batsman to watch out for in the ECC T10 Group B Eliminator. The 30-year-old has amassed 206 runs in eight matches at an impressive strike rate of 214.58 and an average of 25.75. Mohammed is likely to continue his impressive form against Portugal in the high-profile encounter.
Top Tip: Best bowler
Junaid Khan of Portugal is currently the second-highest wicket-taker in the ongoing T10 tournament. Khan has picked 13 wickets in eight matches at an economy of 8.73. The right-arm pacer is tipped to trouble the vaunted Hungary batting line-up in the Group B Eliminator.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper

Zaib has also bagged eight wickets in the tournament. The 40-year-old is expected to play an important role both with the bat and the ball in the must-win encounter.
For the wicket-keeper spot, Hungary’s Satyadeep Ashwathnarayana will be the preferred choice over Francoise Stoman of Portugal due to his better batting credentials.
