The Super Kings are undoubtedly one of the best teams in Group B. They have been pretty dominant on the domestic circuit, finishing first and second in the last two Malta T20 tournaments. They have some of the most seasoned professionals who are capable of winning matches single-handedly. While Gopal Chaturvedi and Varun Prasath will be tasked with keeping the scoreboard rolling, Amar Sharma and Ashok Bishnoi will be responsible for controlling the leakage of runs and scalping wickets. Led by Malta's national team captain Bikram Arora, the Super Kings pose a serious contendership to be crowned ECS T10 Malta champions on their ECS debut.
Swieqi United, on the other hand, will be playing their second tournament since their inception last year. They finished in the penultimate position in the Malta T20 standings on their debut, winning just one of their five matches. Nonetheless, Swieqi United will be hoping for a change of fortunes in ECS T10 Malta, having acquired the services of some capable players who can do well in this format. While Imran Ameer and Rana Hamza are expected to open the innings for Swieqi United, their bowling department will be led by Bilal Khan and Imran Ameer.
