ACCBKey Players:

Gohar Manan, top scorer in the previous edition mustering 251 runs at a strike rate of 278! The opener also scored a brilliant 110* off just 35 balls vs CLJ. Until recently he also held the record for quickest ECS century. He can boast an international hundred in T20Is and is a key member of the national side. Started off this campaign with a magnificent 112* off 37 balls. Highest run scorer for ACCB with 323 runs in nine matches.

Abdul Asif, second highest run scorer for ACCB last term with 82 runs from four innings. Opened 2021 in style with a blistering 19-ball 79* and also picked up FOUR wickets in two games on Monday. Second highest run scorer for ACCB with 307 runs in eight innings including FOUR fifty plus scores. Has also picked up 10 wickets.

Anandha Karthikeyan, the right hander has played a vital role in the ACCB lineup steadying the ship and making sure wickets don’t tumble at both ends. He has racked up 159 runs in eight innings.

Saeed Ullah had a disappointing last season picking up just two wickets, but has turned things around this time leading the wickets column for ACCB with 10 scalps from 10 games. Smashed the last ball for six to secure a precious spot in the final. 

Sami Ullah, right arm medium pacer, national team member, scalped SEVEN wickets in four games last summer with a best return of 3-23. Has scalped SEVEN wickets so far.

Sukhbinder Singh, captain, right arm off-spinner, impressed last term picking up FIVE wickets in four games at an ER of 9.71 - the least among his teammates. Scalped EIGHT wickets already this term.

These two teams finished top of the standings, sharing a win a piece in the group stages. As we saw in the qualifier earlier in the day, much will depend on their respective destructive top orders, boasting great talents such as Gohar Mahan and Taranjeet Singh, absolute run machines for their teams. Cluj won the earlier game when the two teams shared a host of new ECS records, but reigning champions ACCB will be buoyed by their dramatic last ball win over United in the second qualifier when Saeed Ullah smashed the last ball for six to secure a final spot. 


Last time they met: ECS21.553 | CLJ 159(8.2) def ACCB 158 (17 Jul 2020)


Match Prediction: Cluj (CLJ) to win comfortably.
