MALMOHUS Key Players:
Dheeraj Malhotra, an aggressive opening batsman able to play shots on both the front and back foot. Second highest run scorer last term at European Cricket Series Malmo 2020 amassing 171 runs in six innings. Also a dependable and consistent bowler, picking up FOUR wickets with his medium pace.
Ankit Gupta, a talented, adaptable and powerful batsman. Racked up 152 runs from six matches atEuropean Cricket Series Malmo 2020.
Rizwan Tarar, right-handed top order batsman, big hitter who has also developed a solid technique to go with a powerful array of shots in his armoury. Has the ability to transform matches on his own, leading six hitter for MAM at European Cricket Series Malmo 2020 plundering 10 maximos in his total of 91 runs.
Faraz Muneer, right arm niggly medium pacer, consistent bowler with an arsenal of swing, cutters and slower balls. Picked up SIX wickets last summeratEuropean Cricket Series Malmo 2020.
These two sides could be the strongest in the group. Malmohus enjoyed an impressive run last year winning the Bronze medal honours and will be hoping to at least reach the finals this time around. Lund have rebuilt their side and could make things very difficult for Malmohus, particularly if Double D Debarchan Dash gets going.
Match Prediction: Lund to register their first ever ECS win.
