Sri Lankan Lions (SLL) and Nicosia Tigers (NCT) resume hostilities in match 47 of ECS T10 Cyprus 2021 at the Ypsonas Cricket Ground in Limassol on Monday, October 11.

SLL vs NCT Dream11 prediction

It goes without saying that NCT will be the outright favourites to win the match. While SLL have a better net run rate (+0.401), Nicosia finished ahead in third place in the first leg of ECS T10 Cyprus 2021 and registered victories in two of their three clashes this term.

If anything, Sri Lankan Lions must put up a formidable performance that will propel them to a positive start to the second leg of the competition.

SLL vs NCT Dream11 tips for ECS T10 Cyprus 2021

Top tip: Best batsman

SLL’s BLCS Kumara is tipped as the top pick among batsmen for this clash. The southpaw finds himself among the tournament’s top-10 leading run-getters, with 232 runs to his name at a strike rate of 140.60. Considering his ECN tally of 516 runs in 21 outings - including five fifties - Kumara is backed to provide Sri Lankan Lions with a strong start in the upcoming ECS Cyprus T10 2021 fixture.

Top tip: Best bowler

Kamal Raiz has scalped 16 wickets in 13 matches this season, meaning he should be the obvious choice as the top bowler for the SLL vs NCT clash. The pacer commands an economy rate of 8.31, which should appeal to potential fantasy cricket players.

Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper

Iftekar Jaman‘s ECN record has been satisfactory, and thus, cuts out to be the all-rounder to watch out for. The NCT star has registered 388 runs and 14 wickets in 28 career games and is well-placed to consolidate his 2021 tally of 181 runs and 12 wickets.

As for a wicket-keeper, SLL’s Sachithra Pathirana comfortably outdoes his competitor Abid Ali. While Ali has accounted for 16 dismissals (14 catches, one run-out, one stumping), 37-year-old Pathirana has 20 dismissals in 29 matches with a whopping 10 stumpings to his name.
