UMEA Key Players:
Majid Mustafa, right handed top order batsman and wicket-keeper, is one of the most reliable batsman with sound technique. He is the all-time leading run scorer and captain of UME.
Sohail Adnan is the most dangerous batsman in the UME lineup who can destroy any bowling attack with his clean hitting. He is equally lethal with the ball, generating good pace and swing.
Hani Hassan, the 19-year old all-rounder is a shining star. He is one of the best batsman in Umea and is a hard bowler to get away.
Pradeep Singh is a middle order batsman with good technique who can hit huge sixes as well. An economical and tricky bowler to hit due to his tight line and length.

FORENOM ROYALS Key Players:
Rohit Juneja, captain of FOR, will also lead the way with the bat and open the innings.
Sahil Prashar, the hard hitting right hander has mustered 93 runs in five T10 innings at a strike rate of 202. He also has three wickets to his name. Returned figures of 3-9 vs BOT on his ECS debut.
Arpit Tiwari, bowling all-rounder, is a tidy off-spin bowler with SEVEN T10 wickets to his name in eight matches. Was impressive on the opening day bagging a man of the match award in the first game for scoring 25 runs and picking up 3-14 vs BOT.
FOR lost twice on the opening day and will be looking for a reaction. Umea will have already played the defending champions on the second day and will be a tough test for the Royals.
Match Prediction: Umea (UME) to win comfortably and secure their first ever ECS win.
