Projected Top Four: Rohit Juneja, Anirudh Ram, Sahil Prashar, Srini Jettiboyina
Projected Opening Bowlers: Rohit Juneja, Sahil Prashar
Spin Option(s): Arpit Tiwari, Ameya Bendre
FORENOM ROYALS Key Players:
Rohit Juneja, captain and opening bat. Led the way against UME mustering a 21-ball 42. Top scorer and wicket taker for FOR racking up 149 runs and picking SEVEN wickets in eight games.
Sahil Prashar, returned figures of 3-9 vs BOT on his ECS debut. Golden Ball hero taking FOR to their first ever ECS victory vs Umea.
Anirudh Ram, the opener bagged his first man of the match award this season scoring a brilliant 36-ball 64 vs UME yesterday. Has scored a total of 148 runs in seven innings.
Ameya Bendre, the spinner has been impressive with the ball and is joint second highest wicket taker for Forenom Royals with SIX scalps to his name.
Arpit Tiwari, bowling all-rounder, is a tidy off-spin bowler. Was impressive on the opening day bagging a man of the match award in the first game for scoring 25 runs and picking up 3-14 vs BOT. Third highest run scorer for FOR racking up 123 runs in eight innings. Has picked up FOUR wickets as well.
Forenom Royals started off horribly with a succession of heavy defeats but improved as the group stages progressed, including a magical win over PF, inflicting the first ever defeat in ECS competition on the reigning champions. Marsta came with a late run to top Group B despite losing two of their first five games. FOR will be a bit rusty after over a week off from the action, while Marsta have been improving their T10 skills. Everything points to a Marsta win, but anything could happen in T10 cricket.
Match Prediction: Marsta (MAR) to win at a canter.
