Every match of the 2019 Mumbai T20 League will be played at the Wankhede Stadium which is known to be a belter of a pitch for batsmen. However, we saw two low-scoring games on Day 1. We don’t expect that trend to continue and I’ll pack my fantasy team with 5 batsmen for most matches in the MPL 2019.
In Game 3 of the season, Eagle Thane Strikers take on North Mumbai Panthers in a Group A match and both teams are playing their respective first matches of the tournament. Due to lack of match details, ensure you pick both captains and icons players who are most likely to play. Keep reading for our complete Howzat (sign-up with code “READ1234”) fantasy preview of the ETS vs NMP game…
- Tournament: Mumbai T20 League 2019.
- Date: 15th May 2019, 3:30pm IST
- Venue: Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai
- Capacity: 33,000+
- Series status: Game 3 of MPL 2019.
- Average 1st innings score at Wankhede – 187 runs.
- Shardul Thakur had 14 wickets in 10 games in the 2019 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.
- 46*, 39, 67 – Sarfaraz Khan’s scores in 5 innings in IPL 2019 for KXIP.
Eagle Thane Strikers
This team has a couple of big players who have been consistently performing in the Mumbai circuit, one being Shardul Thakur. Being a part of the CSK squad in IPL 2019, Thakur had a brilliant role to play in the final which saw him picking up 2 wickets. His pace will be threatening and you can certainly expect him to be among the wickets against these local players.
Another couple of IPL stars in this squad are Aditya Tare, famous for his last ball six for Mumbai Indians that led them to the play-offs in 2014; and 21-year old attacking batsman Sarfaraz Khan. Both these batsmen should be in your fantasy team while Sachin Wagh could be an option if budget is an issue. After a successful 2018 season, Alpesh Ramjani was signed and no one can forget his 64(34) to take his team into the final last year.
North Mumbai Panthers
Talking about the known faces in the Panthers squad, Prithvi Shaw is your number one bet. Seeing Suryakumar’s 90* in Game 1 encourages me to keep Shaw as my captain as he will be up against a mediocre bowling attack on a good batting pitch. The next known player in the line-up is the 47-year old Pravin Tambe.
Don’t let age fool you. Tambe has an IPL hat-trick and even picked 8 wickets in 4 games at last year’s T10 league in UAE. 17-year old Yashasvi Jaiswal is tipped to be the next big thing in Mumbai cricket with a recent match-winning 173 vs South Africa U19s and and 104 vs Nepal U19s. Pick him in your Howzat (sign-up with code “READ1234”) fantasy team for this ETS vs NMP game. All-rounder Neil Narvekar is also in the squad and could be a game-changer, given he also has a 29-ball 100 in Kanga League to his name.
