Projected Opening Bowlers: Ujwal Gadiraju, Basit Orya
Spin Options: Asghar Amarkhil, Gaurav Singh Rathore
MTV STALLIONS Key Players:
Basit Orya, a swashbuckling opening batsman who loves throwing caution to the wind. He is every bowler's nightmare when on song, top scorer in the tournament so far mustering 96 runs from four innings, has also picked up three wickets, Can also bowl a mean inswinger that readily swallows toes or timber!
Sachin Mandy, wicket-keeper, always switched on behind the wickets, and has the potential to turn a game on its head with the bat. Pumped to make a lasting impression during his debut season with the Stallions, he has started with intent, racking up 73 runs from three matches.
Ujwal Gadiraju, leads the Stallion's bowling attack, swings the ball both ways making batsmen look silly, has a good slower ball and can hit some lusty blows down the order, top wicket taker for MTV scalping four wickets from four games.
MOORBURGER TSV (MTSV)
Captain: Sachin Tawde
Wicketkeeper: Abhishek Chandrashekar
Projected Top Four: Abhishek Chandrashekar, Sachin Tawde, Imran Ali Khan, Karthik Chandregowda
Projected Opening Bowlers: Samjit Chandran, Aditya Mulay
Spin Options: Aditya Gopinath, Arun Prakash, Faizan Farooq
MOORBURGER TSV Key Players:
Arun Prakash has been in decent form with the ball with three victims from four matches.
Samjit Chandran, right arm medium pace bowler, generally a middle over enforcer but is adaptable enough to bowl with the new ball and at the death as well, has picked up two wickets at an economy rate of under nine runs per over.
Azizgul Khalil, young talented bowling all-rounder, bowls with good pace and can swing the ball both ways, also capable of scoring quick runs in the middle order.
Group favourites MTV Stallions have raced to four consecutive victories. MTV would aim to improve their NRR compared to hosts 1.Kieler HTC with a couple of big wins against a struggling Moorburger TSV side who did at least manage to get their first ever ECS win yesterday. It’s a tough ask for MTSV against MTV and anything other than two comfortable wins for the Stallions would be a huge surprise.
Match Prediction: MTV Stallions (MTV) to march to six consecutive wins.
