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 103 runs from five innings, has also picked up three wickets, Can also bowl a mean inswinger that readily swallows toes or timber!

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, has scalped four wickets from six games.

Gaurav Rathore, captain, has led from the front with bat, bowl and on field. He has played a couple of match winning knocks with the bat and has scalped four wickets with the ball, bagged two successive man of the match awards on Wednesday for his all-round performance.

Prakash Singh, right arm fast bowler, is the leading wicket taker in the tournament picking up seven wickets from five matches conceding runs only at 5.77 runs an over, returned with best figures of 3-14 against MTSV on Wednesday.

Mohammad Faruq Arabzai, talented all-rounder, clocks good speeds while bowling and drives the ball exquisitely, scored first fifty of the tournament blasting a 20-ball 56* and picked up a wicket as well in the second game on Tuesday to earn himself a first man of the match award this season.

 

A matchup with the top two in the standings. MTV Stallions have jumped off to a magnificent start with six wins from six and comfortably top the standings. But the leaders face a stern test against the hosts who will be looking to close the gap at the top.

 

Match Prediction: Hosts 1.Kieler HTC have the capability to beat the Stallions if their top order fires. They will fancy their chances in home conditions.
