Overseas CC (OVR) take on American University of Malta (AUM) in the fourth quarter-final of the ECS T10 Malta 2021 at the Marsa Sports Complex on Friday, June 25.
OVR played eight matches in the group stage and registered five wins and suffered three losses, collecting 10 points to qualify for the quarter-finals from Group B. They have put on some brilliant performances and are an attacking unit.
AUM on the other hand qualified after securing third place in Group A with four wins and just as many losses. They have to play out of their skins to overcome OVR in their quarter-final encounter.
OVR vs AUM Dream11 prediction
This is going to be the first time that the two teams are going to take on each other in this tournament. OVR are expected to get over the line versus AUM since they have a more balanced side and have been more consistent this season.
OVR vs AUM Dream11 team tips for ECS T10 Malta
Top tip: Best batsmen
OVR opening batsman Clyde Palmer is in good touch at the moment and can be a game-changer at the top. He heads into the contest on the back of a solid 15-ball 34 versus Swieqi United and fantasy captains can trust him to do a good job come Friday.
Explosive opener Saneesh Kumar has scored quickly for AUM this season. He struck a superb 31-ball 46 against the Southern Crusaders and a 30-ball 49 prior to that against the same opposition. His current form is exactly what fantasy owners will be looking for.
Top tip: Best bowlers
Aron Oulton has been the pick of the bowlers for OVR. He took a miserly 2/5 against GOZ and is known to bowl economical spells, which is something that fantasy lovers rely on.
Zoheb Malek is the bowler to watch out for in the AUM camp. He took 2/16 versus Marsa and can be a real threat to OVR if he can produce a similar performance.
Top tip: All-rounder and wicket-keeper
Callum Burke is the top all-round choice for this match. The OVR player averages 81 fantasy points per match and is extremely handy with bat, ball and in the field.
AUM wicket-keeper Darshit Patankar is a fine pick in this category. He is a decent batsman and is very quick behind the stumps too. Patankar averages 56 fantasy points per match.
OVR vs AUM probable playing XI
Overseas playing XI (probable): Clyde Palmer, Heinrich Gericke (wicket-keeper), David Marks, Jurg Hirschi (captain), Gerald Sant, Sean Byrne, Luke Bradley, Ethan Xuereb, Jack Barritt, Michael Hart, Aron Oulton
