MAR vs AUK Dream11 tips for ECS T10 Malta
Top Tip: Best batsmen
Marsa will bank on their opener Zeeshan Khan to play another match-winning innings against the Knights. The 32-year-old has been the second-highest run-scorer in ECS T10 Malta 2021, amassing 172 runs in five innings at a staggering average of 86. He will look to continue his excellent form in the upcoming encounter.
For AUK, Ciril Mathew will be the batsman to watch out for. Mathew has failed to convert his starts to a big score, and he will look to change that against Marsa. In four matches so far, the 30-year-old has scored 59 runs at a strike rate of 109.25.
Top Tip: Best bowlers
In the bowling department, Waseem Abbas has been one of the standout bowlers for Marsa this season. Abbas has picked five wickets in as many matches at an economy of 5.80. He is tipped to add few more scalps against Atlas UTC Knights.
Meanwhile, Bose Paul will be the go-to bowler for the Knights against Marsa on Tuesday. The 33-year-old has bagged four wickets in four games, with his best figures being 2 for 14. Paul is likely to trouble the vaunted Marsa batting line-up.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
As far as all-rounders are concerned, one must pick Marsa’s Fanyan Mughal as the star all-rounder in their fantasy cricket team. Mughal has claimed four wickets and also added valuable runs for his side. He will be the star player to watch out for in the MAR vs AUK encounter.
For the wicket-keeper spot, Johnnie Grima will be the preferred choice over Shahin Saddham due to his better wicket-keeping capabilities.
