Senthil Raj has been the standout batter for Gozo in the ongoing ECS T10 Malta Encore. The 37-year-old has scored 63 runs in five matches at a strike rate of 143.18 and an average of 31.50. Raj will look to continue his impressive form against Marsa.
Top Tip: Best bowler
Gozo’s Sandeep Sasikumar has been the wrecker-in-chief with the ball for his side in the ongoing T10 tournament. The right-arm fast bowler has picked five wickets in as many matches at an economy of 7.33. He is expected to trouble the Marsa batting line-up and add to his wickets tally on Thursday.

Among the all-rounders, one must pick Marsa’s Fanyan Mughal in your fantasy cricket team. The veteran all-rounder has scored 81 runs in six matches at an impressive strike rate of 184.09. He has also claimed two wickets in the tournament so far. Mughal will play an important role in both departments of the game against Gozo.
For the wicket-keeper spot, Marsa’s John Grima will be the preferred choice over part-time keeper Shiju Vava of Gozo. At 8.5 credits, Grima could be a valuable addition to any fantasy team.
