Limassol Zalmi (LIZ) will lock horns with Nicosia Tigers (NCT) in match 17 of ECS Cyprus 2021 at the Ypsonas Cricket Ground, Limassol on Friday, November 12.

LIZ vs NCT Dream11 prediction

Limassol Zalmi sit third on the ECS Cyprus 2021 points table, with four points from four games. At the time of writing, Nicosia Tigers had won their sole game in the tournament and hence they could have a bit more momentum heading into Friday’s clash.

That said, LIZ are favourites to win this encounter despite losing their last two matches, although one can’t rule out NCT from inflicting a third straight loss on Limassol Zalmi.

LIZ vs NCT Dream11 team tips for ECS Cyprus 2021

Top tip: Best batter

Iftikhar Zaman of NCT can be drafted in as the top batter for this clash. Despite scoring just 35 runs in ECS Cyprus 2021, the Nicosia Tigers star - with 510 runs in 41 ECN-T10 matches - safely outdoes dream team fantasy favourite Murtaza Khan, who has managed just 10 runs in four matches so far.

Top tip: Best bowler

Arshad Khan stands out as the best option amongst the bowlers. The LIZ pacer has bagged six scalps in four games at an economy of 9.85 and makes for a good inclusion in most fantasy teams, given his bowling strike rate of 7.00. The 27-year-old Arshad has accumulated 225 fantasy points so far.

Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper

LIZ’s Jawad Shah has headlined the team’s batting in ECS Cyprus 2021, with 134 runs in two outings at a strike rate of 279.16. With the ball, Jawad has taken just one wicket in four overs. Selected by 92.79 per cent of fantasy players, Jawad Shah will be eager to add to his fantasy points tally of 263 with a spectacular all-round performance against Nicosia Tigers.

Amongst wicket-keepers, Umar Shah is a worthy choice over his counterpart Ashish Bam. The LIZ gloveman has scored 121 runs in four games and accounted for four dismissals - three caught and one run out. Ashish, in comparison, has managed just 10 runs and has one caught dismissal.

LIZ vs NCT probable playing XI

LIZ playing XI (probable): Jawad Shah, Umar Shah (wicket-keeper), Ahsan Ullah, Murtaza Khan (captain), Arshad Khan, Syed Zia, Hassan Shah, Muhammad Fazil, Muhammad Farooq, Muhammad Khan, Kazim Abbas

NCT playing XI (probable): Zeeshan Mehmood, Iftekar Jaman, Ashish Bam  (wicket-keeper), Faysal Mia (captain), Amir Riaz, Jahid Hassan, Kazi Saiful, Arjun Shahi, Sufian Muhammad, Ataur Rahman, Hasham Ali
