FC VIKTORIA 89 Key Players:

Ehsan Latif, the experienced left arm medium pacer is a former German International. He is quick and accurate with his line and length and will be looking to provide early breakthroughs to his side. Also the star composer of the new ECC anthem. WATCH THIS SPACE!! Top wicket taker for VIK scalping EIGHT wickets in four games including a man of the match return of 3-4 vs FBL.
Waleed Aslam, the right hander is one of the best hitters in the VIK side with a genuinely unorthodox batting style. When he’s on song, he can even hit sixes over point! Scored 34 runs in two matches on Tuesday.
Usman Hadi, the all-rounder will be opening the innings for VIK with both bat and ball. Played for Berlin Eagles CC last term, but didn’t enjoy much opportunity to impress. Mustered 53 off 31 balls vs EIH on Wednesday.
VIK have won their last three games and will present a stern challenge for the unbeaten hosts and current leaders RC Dresden.
