The 21st match of ECS T10 Malta 2021 will see Marsa (MAR) taking on Southern Crusaders (SOC) on Saturday, June 19 at the Marsa Sports Complex.
The two teams have had contrasting fortunes in the tournament as Marsa are unbeaten in two matches so far and Southern Crusaders are yet to win a game after their two outings.
MAR vs SOC Dream11 prediction
Marsa have produced two scintillating displays so far in the season. In their opening match against Royal Strikers, they posted 115/1 in 10 overs and bowled out their opponent for just 73. Their second match was a five-wicket victory over the same opponent. So judging by the form they are in, a win for Marsa is the likely outcome of Saturday’s game.
MAR vs SOC best players to pick for ECS T10 Malta fantasy team
Top tip: Best batsmen
Marsa are blessed to have Zeeshan Khan in their ranks. The opening batsman is his team’s top scorer with 86 runs and this has come at a strike rate of over 175. The batsman is averaging 68.5 fantasy points per game and thus remains a must-have player for this fixture.
From SOC, 42-year-old Angelo Delardon remains the safest bet as he averages 19 fantasy points per game. This is the best return by any batsman from the side.
Top tip: Best bowlers
Bowling has been MAR’s strong side so far and most of its credit is due to the brilliance of Nowell Khosla. The 39-year-old, who has also chipped in with some crucial runs with the bat, has picked four wickets this season while conceding a mere 10 runs in two matches. He is averaging 82 fantasy points and deserves a place in your team.
As far as SOC are concerned, Jojo Thomas is the outright choice. The 31-year-old averages 99 fantasy points per game as he has picked five wickets so far. Apart from that, he has also maintained an economy of 5.75.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
For an all-rounder, Bilal Khan of SOC could be an important pick. While he has only played one game this season, he returned by scoring an 11-ball 26 and picked a wicket as well, meaning that earned 85 fantasy points from the fixture.
Niraj Khanna for MAR should be your wicket-keeper for the MAR vs SOC match. The 38-year-old has already scored a half-century and has overall accumulated 77 runs at an average of 77.
