Umar Shah, another all-rounder who featured for CES, second highest scorer for LIZ racking up 121 runs in four games.

Arshad Khan, talented medium pacer, looked lethal with the ball scalping SIX wickets in four games to lead the wickets column for LIZ.

Projected Top Four: Roman Mazumder, Mehmood Zeeshan, Ashish Bam, Bilal Hussain

NICOSIA TIGERS Key Players:

Mehmood Zeeshan, right handed batter, top scorer for NCT racking up 96 runs in three innings. Scored a 31-ball 78 vs NFCC on Thursday bagging a player of the match award. Has also scalped FOUR wickets.

Iftekhar Jaman, valuable all-rounder, capable of chipping in with both bat and ball. Scored a match winning knock of 35 off 19 balls on Monday.

Nicosia Tigers remain the only unbeaten side in the tournament barring newcomers Haidree Lions who have not made their debut yet. NCT were brutal with the bat against rivals NFCC posting the highest total in the tournament so far. Debutants Limassol Zalmi started off with a couple of wins, but lost their next double header to leaders BCP. LIZ will look to bounce back, but it will not be easy against a strong looking NCT side.

 

Match Prediction: Nicosia Tigers (NCT) to notch up two victories.

Match Prediction: Cyprus Moufflons (CYM) to win both games.
