MSC Frankfurt (MSF) will lock horns with Aachen Rising Stars (ARS) in the seventh match of the ECS T10 Krefeld 2021 at the Bayer Uerdingen Cricket Ground in Germany on Tuesday, May 18.

MSF vs ARS best players for Dream11 team
Top Tip: Best batsmen
MSC Frankfurt will depend on Adel Khan to play another match-winning innings against Aachen Rising Stars. The 23-year-old smashed 63 runs off just 32 balls to help his side secure a clinical victory in their last encounter.

For the Aachen Rising Stars, 18-year-old youngster Javed Khan is tipped to be the wrecker-in-chief for his side. Picking Javed Khan in your fantasy team is a safe choice.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Several quality all-rounders will be on display in the MSC Frankfurt vs Aachen Rising Stars encounter. However, one must pick MSC Frankfurt all-rounder Shahid Afridi in their fantasy team. The hard-hitting opener has amassed 168 runs from eight matches in ECS at a staggering strike rate of 218 and picked up six wickets with the ball.
For the wicket-keeper spot, Frankfurt’s Habib Rahman will be the preferred choice over Sagar Kataria.
