MTD vs GOZ best players to pick for ECS Malta T10 fantasy team
Top tip: Best batsmen
Cornelius Younus of MTD scored 46 in the last game at a strike rate of 184. He is likely to open the batting and is a decent bet in the batting department in fantasy leagues.
Milton Devasia of GOZ will open the batting. Although he has scored only 53 runs in three games, he will also be useful with the ball, like we saw in the game against SWU on June 18. In four games, he has given more than 200 fantasy points with both bat and ball.
Top tip: Best bowlers
Sandeep Sasikumar of GOZ was brilliant with the ball in the last game against SWU. He picked up two wickets and also bowled a maiden over, which gave bonus points to fantasy players. He has taken four wickets in as many games in the competition. He has also given 200 plus fantasy points so far.
Salman Khan of MTD has only played two games in this tournament so far, but has already picked up five wickets, including a three-wicket haul on June 17 against SWU. In this wicket-taking form, it would be a folly to drop him from your fantasy teams.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Azeem Sathi of MTD could be the best fit in the all-rounder category. He will open the batting, but it's his bowling that’s been impressive in this tournament. He picked up three wickets in the last game. Till now, he has given close to 300 fantasy points.
Ajeesh Antony of GOZ will open the batting. He will keep wickets and also operate with the ball. This dynamic cricketer must be a part of all fantasy cricket teams. He is yet to deliver with the bat, but was the star in the game against Swiegi United, where he picked up two wickets at an economy of only four.
MTD vs GOZ probable playing XI
MTD playing XI (probable): Sam Aquilina, Shamoon Liaqat, Cornelius Younus, Azeem Sathi, Sharon Lazar, Faizal Naeem, Salman Khan, Muthu Kumaran, Michael Nazir, Uday Maclean, Mohammed Sanawar
GOZ playing XI (probable): Aji Wilson, Jerin Jacob, Sandeep Sasikumar, Shibil Palakkalappil, Ajeesh Antony, Ajin Jose, Basil Scaria, Janak Bhandari, Sethil Raj, Milton Devasia, Renju Ravi.
