Projected Opening Bowlers: Debarchan Dash, Wahab Hassan

Spin Option(s): Oktai Gholami, Inder Singh

 

LUND Key Players:

Debarchan Dash, the destructive, hard hitting opening batsman has impressive statistics in Swedish cricket. He was also MVP and top scorer in the European Cricket Series Malmo 2020, mustering 210 runs at a devastating SR of 233. The right hander smashed the joint most sixes with 20 hits over the ropes. He is equally good with the ball, scalping SIX wickets last term and is rated one of the top all rounders in Swedish cricket. Mustered 24 runs in 12 balls in the opening game.

Oktai Gholami, solid, technical middle order batsmen and left arm spinner with excellent control. Recently selected for the national team for both T20 and T10 squads. Played for AF at European Cricket Series Malmo 2020 returning impressive figures of 3-3 vs Karlskrona Zalmi CF.

Wahab Hassan, a talented, hard hitting top-order batsmanand opening bowler. Will be looking to provide his team with good starts with both bat and ball. Mustered an 18-ball 55 and picked up a couple of wickets in the opening game to take LND to a first ever ECS win and was awarded man of the match for his all-round efforts.

Hardeep Virk, captain, wicket keeper batsman, a decent top order batsman with good skills behind the wicket. Didn’t enjoy last season playing for AF, scoring just 23 runs in five innings. He will look to turn things around this season in charge of a new team. Scored a well-made 21 off 13 balls in the opening game contributing to his side’s first ever ECS victory.

 

Hisingens enter the fray with a tough assignment against a strong looking Lund lineup. HSG did not enjoy their debut last year, winning just a solitary game at European Cricket Series Gothenburg 2020 and will be hoping to improve on that showing this time around. Lund opened their account with a win over Malmohus at the weekend and will start strong favourites.

 

Match Prediction: Lund (LND) to win both encounters at a canter.
