The 6th match of 2020 ECS T10 Stockholm League will be played between Kista Cricket Club and Alby Zalmi CC at the Marsta Cricket Club in Stockholm.
The match starts at 10:00 AM local time (1:30 PM IST) (8:00 AM GMT).
This game can be streamed live on Fan Code.
Kista Cricket Club will kick start their campaign in the ECS T10 Stockholm League after getting a rest day earlier on Monday. They got a chance to follow five matches held on the tournament’s opening day and understand the conditions and the opposition. However, their first game is not going to be an easy one as they face Alby Zalmi CC who cruised to a thumping win over Stockholm Mumbai Indians. Alby Zalmi smashed the highest total across the first matches of 123/4 and kept down the opponent to 44/7; the lowest total thus far.
The Marsta Cricket Club could witness rain on Tuesday but possibly after the game between Alby Zalmi and Kista.
The Marsta Cricket Club is hosting this competition on a matting wicket which hardly provides any help for the bowlers. The first day of the tournament witnessed four 90+ totals after a low scoring first match which the chasing team lost by one run. There is a possibility of the game between Alby Zalmi and Kista being a low-scoring match.
Average first innings score: 97
Record of chasing teams: Won – 0, Lost – 5

Muhammad Farhan Anwar has not made much impact with the bat in domestic T20s but has scored a 19-ball 56 and a 47-ball 100 during 40-overs games he played inside a week in September 2019. Azam Khalil produced what was easily the best all-round performance on Monday. He first scored an unbeaten 36 from only 15 balls and he later bagged three wickets in the two overs he bowled conceding only eight runs.
Faraan Chaudhry smashed four boundaries during his 15-ball 31 on Monday while batting at No.4 against the Stockholm Mumbai Indians. He has the ability to bowl but not been chosen for that role yet. Zubair Abbas bagged 8 wickets across six domestic T20 matches at an economy of little over six runs. He can also bat as he scored 70 runs across six T20 innings with help of two scores of 25 and more.
Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:
Captain options – Azam Khalil, Chandan Khatri, Qudratullah Mir Afzal
Vice-Captain options – Muhammad Farhan Anwar, Muhammad Usman Iftikhar, Faraan Chaudhry
Suggested Playing XI for Head to Head/Small Leagues:
Keeper – Kashan Khan
Batsmen – M Usman Iftikhar, Q Mir Afzal, M Farhan Anwar (VC)
All-Rounders – Azam Khalil (C), Fashahid Shah, Chandan Khatri
Bowlers – Faraan Chaudhry, Shahed Ali, Nasir Khan, Talha Masood
Suggested Playing XI for Grand Leagues/Mega Leagues:
Keeper – Ismaeel Zia
Batsmen – M Usman Iftikhar, Q Mir Afzal, M Farhan Anwar, A Muhammad Siddiqi
All-Rounders – Azam Khalil (C), Fashahid Shah, Chandan Khatri (VC)
Bowlers – Faraan Chaudhry, Shahed Ali, Arif Zaidi
Shahid Nawaz is placed in the batsmen’s category with a price tag of 9.5 credits. However, there is no enough evidence of him being of that level. He played only three domestic T20 matches where he scored 54 runs. It is why we haven’t even picked in our probable playing XI. If he does play, he can be picked in the suggested fantasy No.2 as he got picked by less than 20%.
Ably Zalmi is expected to produce yet another dominating performance against Kista CC.
