UNI vs BAN Dream11 team tips for ECS T10 Romania

Additionally, Satheesan has been the leading wicket-taker in the competition with 12 wickets at an economy of 8.91.

The swashbuckling opener smashed 80 runs off just 32 balls against the same opposition to propel his side to a mammoth 186/3, helping Baneasa secure a 97-run victory. Hussain will look to continue his scintillating form in the high-profile clash on Saturday.
Top Tip: Best bowlers
In the bowling department, Ali Hussain has been the wrecker-in-chief for United in the T10 tournament. The 28-year-old has bagged nine wickets in six matches including his best figures of 3/20 coming against Baneasa. He is likely to add a few more scalps to his name in the Eliminator.

Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
As far as all-rounders are concerned, picking Muhammad Mashal in your fantasy cricket team is a no-brainer. The Baneasa all-rounder has scored 188 runs in six matches at a staggering strike rate of 272.46. The 22-year-old has also bagged five wickets in the tournament.
For the wicket-keeper spot, United’s Stan Ahuja will be the preferred choice over Sheriyar Sohail due to his better batting capabilities. While Ahuja has scored 121 runs in six innings, Sohail has managed 70 runs in seven innings.
