First Contact (FCT) will take to the field with the unenviable task of squaring off against the unbeaten Kummerfelder Sportverein (KSV) in the third quarterfinal of the ECS T10 Kiel 2021 at the Kiel Cricket Ground on Friday, June 11.
KSV ended the league stage with seven wins on the trot and remained unbeaten throughout. They topped Group B with 14 points, six points clear of the next team in the standings.
FCT, meanwhile, finished fourth in the Group A table with two wins and six losses.They will have to play out of their skins to put on a tough fight against the Group B toppers who are the overwhelming favourites.
KSV vs FCT Dream11 prediction
The contest appears to be quite lopsided with the kind of performances the teams have put on in the lead up to the quarter finals. KSV is very likely to continue their ruthless run and get the better of FCT who have endured more defeats than claimed wins so far.
KSV vs FCT best players for ECS T10 Kiel 2021 fantasy team
Top tip: Best batsmen
KSV skipper Shoaib Azam is a great pick in the batting department. He scored an unbeaten 15-ball 42 at a staggering strike rate of 286 versus SC Europa and also notched 64 against VFB Fallersleben and a 32 against THCC. The attacking opener poses a major threat for any opposition.
FCT opener Zahirshah Zakhil is another batsman to watch out for. He hammered an unbeaten 29-ball 56 against SGH and is known for giving quick starts at the top of the order. Fantasy lovers will be glad to have him in their ranks.
Top tip: Best bowlers
Dilraj Singh is the surprise bowling choice who is in form for KSV. He took 3/13 against SC Europa and can play a decisive role in the outcome of the upcoming encounter.
Abdulrahman Amarkhail is the bowler to watch out for in the FCT camp. He returned with his best figures of 4/16 against 1.Kieler HTC and will be looking to weave some of his magic again.
Top tip: All-rounder and wicket-keeper
Ahmed Musaddiq, the KSV all-rounder is the best option available for this category. He has scored the fastest century in the tournament, a mind-boggling 33-ball 115 against THCC Hamburg besides also producing another sparkling knock of 65 against PSV. These knocks have ensured him a sureshot place in most fantasy teams. He’s also known for his knack of breaking important partnerships.
For the wicket-keeping category, FCT’s Akbar Jabarkhel is a smart pick. He averages 25 points per match and is pretty neat behind the stumps
