We are heading into the business end of the tournament and it's time for the first semi-final of the ECS Sweden 2022 between Evergreen and Malmohus (EVE vs MAL). The match will kick start from 12:30 PM IST at the Landskorna Cricket Club.
After 40 action-packed group stage matches which saw each team play back-to-back matches against the same opposition on the same day, eight teams -- Hisingens, Malmohus, Evergreen, Ariana, Jonkoping, Seaside, Helsingborg Stars and Lomma qualified for the last-8 stage of the tournament. Evergreen clashed against Hisingens in the third quarter-final, while Malmohus faced Seaside in the second. The winner of the match heads into the final which will be played on May 14 itself. The two teams losing in the semifinals will lock horns in the Bronze Final which will precede the final.
Mentioned below is the top team bet from the EVE vs MAL head-to-head contest.
Evergreen have been rampant since the start of the tournament, winning all their eight matches in the group stage. The team stayed unbeaten after thrashing Hisingens by eight wickets in the quarter-finals. No other team has achieved the feat in the ongoing T10 tournament and that makes it very obvious that Evergreen are the clearcut favourites to thump Malmohus and advance into the final. Evergreen have been ruthless in all the departments of the game. Their batsman Umar Nazaz has scored staggering 362 runs -the most by any batter in the ECS Sweden 2022 - at an average of 60.33 and strike rate of 241.33 and all eyes will be on him once again. The top two wicket-takers also belong to the Group A table-toppers. Imran Kiyani has scalped 12 wickets, while Muhammad Qadeer has as many wickets to his name. Another Evergreen bowler Basit Abdul is eighth on the list with nine wickets. Malmohus, with 5 wins in 8 matches, finished second in the Group B. After losing their first three matches on the trot, Malmohus have now won six matches on the bounce. What's worrying is that they lost both their matches against strong opposition like Ariana who topped Group B standings in group stage. Their best batsmen Dheeraj Malhotra and Ankit Gupta have scored 184 and 181 runs each Prasanjit Behera and Dheeraj Malhotra ( 9 wickets apiece) are the leading wicket-takers for Malmohus. It's quite obvious that the team is good but too dependent on Malhotra. Evergreen are almost certain of booking the final berth on Saturday. If you feel the same, head over to Pari Match and place your bet on Evergreen from the EVE vs MAL head-to-head encounter.
