ENG-XI vs GER, ECC 2021 Group C, Qualifier 1
Date and Time: 1st October 2021, 2:30 PM IST
Venue: Cartama Oval, Cartama
A high-scoring game is on the cards with little help on offer for the bowlers. The ball should skid nicely on to the bat, enabling the batsmen to play shots on the up. Although there is some swing on offer, the batters should make good use of the smaller dimensions of the ground. There isn't much turn available for the spinners, who will look to use the extra bounce on offer to their advantage. Both teams will look to bat first upon winning the toss, with 110 being a good score at the venue.
Today’s ENG-XI vs GER Dream11 match top picks
Husnain Kabeer: Husnain Kabeer was the lone warrior in Germany's loss against Italy in their previous European Cricket Championship game. Kabeer looked in good form and was comfortable against both the spinners and pacers, holding him in good stead ahead of today's fixture.
Harrison Ward: Harrison Ward has blown hot and cold in the European Cricket Championship, but his talent is there for everyone to fathom out. Ward has shown glimpses of his explosive self and with conditions favoring the batters, he should be one to watch out for in this ENG-XI vs GER clash.
Rohit Singh: German captain Rohit Singh has been sensational with the bat. He comes into the game on the back of a good run of form, scoring a fifty against Finland on Thursday. Handy with the ball as well, Rohit can be banked upon to make an impact in your ENG-XI vs GER Dream11 fantasy team.
Rich Edwards: Rich Edwards has consistently picked up wickets for England with his variations serving him well in the European Cricket Championship. Given his ability to generate extra bounce, Edwards should find himself amongst the wickets yet again for England XI.
