Preview for Dream11 Fantasy
The Sporting Alfas will face the Pinatar Pirates C.C. in the season opener of the ECS-Alicante T10 League 2020 on Monday. Alfas have a strong batting line up that comprises of Faran Afzal, Mark Perman and Simon Barter, who look in great touch with the bat based on their recent performances.
Even Perman had scored a brilliant fifty for his team in his last outing against Theale CC. He will look to replicate the same form in the curtain-raiser of his team. Meanwhile, the bowling unit also looks balanced with the likes Jamshaid Ahmad, Amjad Hussain and Hamza Kayani.
Pinatar Pirates CC have also announced a fairly strong squad for the T10 tournament with a proper mix of experienced and young players. They have Gopi Singh, Santosh Rai and J Jagdeep Singh in their top order, who are expected to play some vital knocks in the season opener for their side. On the other hand, their bowling unit looks perfectly fine as they have Balwant Singh and Kulwant Singh in their team
The weather forecast says that there are chances of rain with a probability of around 60%. The wind will be blowing at a rate of 33 to 44 km/hr whereas the temperature will hover between 9 and 23 Degree Celsius throughout the day according to Accuweather.
The track at Woodbridge Oval is expected to offer a bit of help to the fast bowlers due to the windy conditions. The batsmen will struggle against the fast bowling as they will get some swing that will make the life of batsmen miserable on the pitch. The side batting first on this ground has ended up winning more games. So, the side winning the toss will prefer to bat in order to be on the safer side. A 100+ run target will be easily defendable on this ground as far as the stats are concerned.
Average first innings score: 95 (Stats considered until Match 7)
Record of the chasing teams: Won – 1; Lost – 4
