Swieqi United and Mater Dei will lock horns in the 15th and 16th matches of the ECS T10 Malta at Marsa Sports Club on Thursday.
Swieqi United have been unlucky in the tournament as they got steamrolled in both the matches they have played so far. They need to regroup and aim to bounce back strongly before things get out of hand.
Mater Dei’s story is pretty similar to United’s as they started the tournament with two back-to-back defeats. They are currently reeling at the bottom and are facing the risk of elimination. Before it gets too late, Mater Dei would love to add some wins to their kitty.

With both matches scheduled to be played on a used pitch, we expect it to be on the slower side with spinners getting a lot of turns. There should be something for batsmen too, with the pacers not getting any swing.
90 should be the average first innings score and both teams will look to bat first on this tricky surface.
