An exciting contest awaits as defending champions Leinster Lightning (LLG) clash with Munster Reds (MUR) at Dublin for Match 6 of the Cricket Ireland Inter-Provincial ODI Limited Over Cup 2021.
LLG are placed second in the table after three matches. They are tied on nine points with first-placed North-West Warriors (NWW) but are slightly behind on net run rate. With a convincing win, they can go right to the top of the standings.
MUR, on the other hand, are yet to register a win so far having played just once this season. They were convincingly defeated by table-toppers NWW in their only match and will be hoping for a better result against LLG.
LLG vs MUR Dream11 prediction
Leinster Lightning have shown their all-round prowess in the three matches they have played, winning twice and losing once. Munster Reds are yet to get a win this season and were bundled out in their only game this season, making LLG the favourites to secure another victory.
LLG vs MUR best players
Top Tip: Best Batsmen
George Dockrell is the leading run-scorer for LLG as well as overall in the tournament. In three matches so far, he has scored 209 runs with one century and two half-centuries. With such a record to his name, he should be one of the first picks in any fantasy team.
For MUR, Murray Commins is the one to watch out for. He top-scored with 61 runs for his side and would be hoping to get a bigger score in his next outing.
Top Tip: Best Bowlers
Barry McCarthy leads the bowling charts for LLG courtesy eight wickets in three matches with best figures of 4/32. The medium pacer is an easy pick in any fantasy side based on his brilliant performance.
The young Aaron Cawley is the best pick from MUR due to his attacking bowling. He’s taken a wicket in the only match they have played and would be eager to make his mark on the tournament as it progresses.
Top Tip: Best All-rounder & wicket-keeper
George Dockrell leads the run charts as well as chips in with wickets for LLG and plays an important role as an all-rounder, making him the best bet for any fantasy team.
LLG’s Lorcan Tucker is the best wicket-keeping bet as he has affected seven dismissals in three matches and is brilliant behind the stumps. He is a definite pick for a majority of the fantasy team owners.
