Malta vs Romania recent form
Still unbeaten in the competition, Malta have dominated the ongoing Valletta Cup right from the very beginning. Starting off with a five-wicket win over Gibraltar, the team has gone on to beat the likes of Hungary, Czech Republic, Bulgaria and even Romania during the group stage matches.
Romania, on the other hand, have suffered two defeats so far. One of them came against Malta itself while the second came against Hungary.

Malta vs Romania prediction and cricket betting tips for Valletta Cup 2022
Romania have been excellent in their last three matches, but Malta have been more consistent. The former has been a victim of individual brilliance while the latter has put forward a collective performance.
Take Romania’s Ijaz Hussain, who is the tournament’s highest wicket-taker, for example. The bowler has picked 11 wickets in five matches. No other bowler from his team managed to pick over five scalps. From Malta, however, as many as three bowlers have picked five or more wickets this season.
The fact that the Malta players have complimented each other brilliantly this season is why they are favourites to win Sunday’s contest.
