Unbeaten teams Super Kings (SKI) and Overseas (OVR) square off in matches 19 and 20 of ECS T10 Malta 2021 at the Marsa Sports Complex on Friday, June 18.
Super Kings have been in prolific form lately, having scored 200 in their recent game against Gozo and bowled them all out for a paltry six runs. This performance serves as a massive highlight that SKI are the overwhelming favourites to win the fixture against OVR.
On the flip side, Overseas have won their opening two games and should give a confident fight to Super Kings.
OVR vs SKI Dream11 prediction
While both Overseas and Super Kings haven’t lost a game yet in ECS T10 Malta, the Kings’ impressive net run rate of +9.775 is the sole reason why onlookers should put their money on a SKI victory.
OVR vs SKI best players to pick for ECS T10 Malta fantasy team
Top tip: Best batsmen
With a fantasy cricket rating of 150 points, Charl Kleinepunte is pegged as the top batsman for this game. The OVR opener is coming off a match-winning half-century against Mater Dei and will look to consolidate his tally of 91 runs in two games.
SKI, meanwhile, will look up to Bikram Arora. The batter is the third-highest run-getter after four games and will look to play a significant role with the bat on Friday.
Top tip: Best bowlers
SKI’s Ashok Bishnoi is the best bet for a top-performing bowler in the latest ECS T10 Malta fixture. The 33-year-old leads the bowling charts with 11 wickets at an economy rate of 5.66 and is eager to unsettle the OVR batting order.
Callum Burke’s spin bowling, on the other hand, should anchor OVR’s bowling against SKI. The 24-year-old has scalped four wickets after bowling just 3.5 overs, meaning he can turn out to be a game-changing factor in Friday’s showdown.
Top tip: All-rounder and wicket-keeper
Jurg Hirschi may be rated as the second-best all-rounder for the game, but his record - 133 runs and three wickets - makes him the obvious choice as an all-rounder in your fantasy cricket team. The OVR skipper has 238 fantasy cricket points and is well-placed to reward his owners with a spirited performance with the bat and ball.
Affy Khan is favoured as the best wicket-keeper for the OVR vs SKI tie. Not only is the 35-year-old impressive with his glovework behind the stumps - five dismissals (three stumpings and two catch dismissals) - but he is prolific with the bat - 114 runs at an impressive strike rate of 251.06. Affy Khan is simply undroppable.
OVR vs SKI playing XI (probable)
Overseas probable XI (probable): Luke Bradley, Callum Burke, Sean Byrne (wicket-keeper), Heinrich Gericke, Jurg Hirschi (captain), Charl Kleinepunte, David Marks, Andrew Naudi, Aron Oulton, Gerald Sant, Ethan Xuereb
Super Kings probable XI (probable): Ashok Bishnoi, Gopal Chaturvedi, Ihtisham Ishaq, Affy Khan (wicket-keeper), Sumair Khan, Varun Prasath, Umair Saleem, Hasheem Shahzad, Amar Sharma (captain), Gurjeet Singh, Yash Singh
