In the 12th game of the ECS T10 Cyprus series, Nicosia XI Fighters CC will take on Riyaan CC at Ypsonas Cricket Ground. The batting heavy sides will look to win the games and better their position on the points table.
Earlier, in the fourth match of the season, both sides met at the same ground where Riyaan CC came out on top and Nicosia Fighters XI were left to rue their mistakes.
Riyaan CC piled up 168 runs in their quota of 10 overs for the loss of four wickets. Nicosia Fighters failed to make an impact and could just score 80 runs while chasing the daunting target.
Atta Ullah will be the key player for Riyaan CC as he is known for quickfire batting, with his 20-ball 61 holding him in good stead. In the bowling department, Sitbal Hussain will have an important role to play.
Nicosia Fighters will hope that their batsmen strike rich form and score in bulk. In their previous match, Benjoir Ahmed was the only player who put up some fight against the opposition and he will hold the onus for the Fighters in this match too.

Match: Nicosia Tigers CC vs Nicosia XI Fighters CC
Date: 27th August 2020, 2:30 PM IST
Venue: Ypsonas Cricket Ground, Limassol
Ypsonas Cricket Ground is a happy hunting ground for the batsman. The ball comes onto the bat easily and the boundaries are perfectly suitable for the teams to score in abundance. However, the initial overs will be quite hard for the batsmen as there will be support for the swing bowlers.
On the other hand, spinners might face difficulties, without any purchase off the surface and lack of turn. The team winning the toss will look to bat first and mount the misery on the opposition.
