The fifth match of ECS Sweden T10 2021 will see Stockholm (STO) taking on Pakistanska Forening (PF) for the second time in two days at the Norsborg Cricket Ground, Stockholm, on Tuesday, July 20.
STO vs PF Dream11 prediction
Defending champions Pakistanska will undoubtedly be the favourites going into this fixture. Not only are they atop the points table with four points from two matches, but their last win was a comfortable 30-run one against Stockholm. They are expected to repeat the feat on Tuesday.
STO vs PF Dream11 team tips for ECS T10 Stockholm
Top tip: Best batsmen
Khalil Jalali will be Pakistanska Forening's best bet with the bat. The middle-order batsman has scored 43 runs in the opening two matches, and provides the perfect cushion for openers Faraan Chaudhry and Imam Din to go all out. Fantasy team owners should have him in their team.
Stockholm found Shiva Arsi's batting reliable on Monday as his unbeaten 21 after the team’s poor start kept his side competitive. Although it is too early, fantasy owners could bank on him given Stockholm will take time to find their footing.
Top tip: Best bowlers
Stockholm have found their strike bowler early on in the season, in Deepjagan Singh. Up against an in-from PF batting order, Singh returned with figures of 2/12 in his two overs. He is expected to anchor Stockholm's bowling attack in the remainder of the season as well.
Skipper Bilal Muhammad led the bowling for Pakistanska on Monday, as he returned with figures of 2/5 in his two overs. His economic spell took away Stockholm's sting midway as they were chasing 98 runs in 10 overs. Muhammad will be the best bowling bet for the defending champions.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Manoj Tomar was easily the best player for Stockholm against PF. Apart from taking a couple of wickets with the ball, he came down in the middle order to score a steady 27 that kept his team in the game until the very last over. He will be the best option for the all-rounder's position.
Given the superior form of Pakistanska, Usama Chaudhry will be a good wicket-keeping choice heading into this fixture. The middle-order batsman can rotate strike well, as was seen in his crucial 11-run innings against Stockholm on Monday.
STO vs PF playing XI (probable)
STO playing XI (probable): Chenna Nali (captain)(wicket-keeper), Deepjagan Singh, Harlagan Sandhu, Himanshu Patel, Manoj Kumar, Satya Meka, Praveen Natarajan, Santosh Yadlapalli, Shiva Arsi, Sridhar Pokala, Vinod Chalindra
PF playing XI (probable): Faraan Chaudhary, Imam Din, Khalil Jalali, Sameer Ali Khan, Mohammed Vajjih Ali, Usama Chaudhary (wicket-keeper), Jamal Awan, Zuban Aslam, Abdullah Khalil, Bilal Muhammad (captain), Waqar Hassan
