Milton Devasia, all-rounder, top scorer for Gozo in the previous edition scoring 98 runs in eight matches. He is also a decent spinner capable of deceiving batsmen, picked up FOUR wickets.

Sandeep Sasikumar, the right arm fast bowler was the most impressive GOZ bowler in June earlier this year. First Gozo player to win a man of the match award on the grand stage of European Cricket, led the wicket taking charts for Gozo with EIGHT scalps. He also scored 57 runs.

Projected Top Four: Samuel Stanislaus, Manoj Panicker, Basil George, Avinash Dileep 

Projected Opening Bowlers: Asif Sha, Justin Shaju

Spin Options: Samuel Stanislaus



Basil George, star all-rounder, powerhouse of AUK with the bat, has the ability to smash all around the park. Scored 22 off 13 balls and picked up a wicket vs MAR.

Samuel Stanislaus, Knight's Mr Dependable, has been the leading run scorer for AUK in both the previous ECS editions. He can also roll his arm when needed. Scored an unbeaten 37 vs MAR on Saturday.

Sujesh Appu, the AUK skipper led from the front scalping most wickets for his side in the FanCode ECS Malta 2021. Scalped a couple of wickets vs MAR on Saturday.

Justin Shaju, another valuable all-rounder, can swing the ball around at a decent pace and score handy runs down the order.


Atlas UTC Knights started off with a comfortable win against Marsa and will be confident of going into the double header against a not so strong GOZ side. Gozo struggled throughout the tournament last season racking up a series of unwanted records in the process. GOZ will be determined for a better showing this time around.


Match Prediction: Atlas UTC Knights (AUK) to win both games at a canter.

Projected Opening Bowlers: Fazil Khan, Waseem Abbas

Spin Options: Sidharth Anand


MARSA Key Players:

Nowell Khosla, a handy all-rounder, is a natural strokemaker with the bat and a quality spin bowler. He picked up SEVEN wickets and scored 120 runs in the previous edition.

Zeeshan Khan, one of the top players for Marsa, is fearless and loves to take on the new ball bowlers, was top run scorer for Marsa in the previous edition with 206 runs from nine matches with 15 LONG maximos.

Niraj Khanna, right-handed batter, second highest scorer for MAR racking up 176 runs in eight innings including a crafty half century and was named man of the match for this effort.

Waseem Abbas, national team opening bowler, gets good movement off the seam, his height helps extract good bounce off the pitch that troubles batsmen. Top wicket taker for Marsa at FanCode ECS Malta 2021 with 11 scalps from nine matches, can also give it a whack with bat in hand.


American University of Malta started off in style winning both their games by big margins vs RST. AUM will be keen to carry on the momentum against Marsa. On the other hand, Marsa are without a win in their last five ECS games. Infact, their last win came against AUM back in June earlier this year when MAR won the double header. Will MAR get back to winning ways versus AUM?


Last time they met: ECS21.461 | MAR 65(8.2) def AUM 61 (21 Jun 2021)


Match Prediction: American University of Malta (AUM) to win a couple of entertaining affairs.
