The Italy and Germany team will lock horns in the Match 1 of European Cricket Championship T10 2021. The Italy team will require the contributions of Hassan Ahmad and Janaka Wass, while Germany have the presence of Shoaib Azam Khan and Abdul Shakoor. The all-rounder Rohit Singh will lead the Germany side, while Baljit Singh will captain the Italy side.
The Italy team last played an international tournament against the Germany side in 2019 and won the series.

While, Germany is playing active cricket in the T20 as well as ECS T10 series. The Match 1 of the Group C tournament is set to be exciting between both the teams being quite proficient in the T10 format. They both will make ECC debut with this match.

Pitch Report: The match between Italy and Germany is scheduled to played in Cartama Oval, Malaga.

There isn’t much for the bowlers, and they have to try variations to disturb the flow of the batters. The par score on this venue will be 120, which is taken as it will take some nerves to settle down on the first day.
Brief score of the last result at the venue: Netherlands XI 126/6 won by 4 runs against Austria 122/8 in ECC T10 2021.
The 7 players from Italy and 4 players from Germany are chosen for your Dream11 prediction. This is due to the recent ECS T10 performances of some players. The captain pick for your team will be Rohit Singh who can contribute in both departments, and vice-captain can be Hassan Ahmad who has a good track record in the T10 format and would look to continue the same form.

BATSMEN: Shoaib Azam Khan, Damith Kosala, Abdul Shakoor Rahimzei
ALL-ROUNDERS: Amir Sharif, Rohit Singh
BOWLERS:Janaka Wass, Jaspreet Singh, Muhammad Imran
The Italy team is expected to fare better in this fixture due to their recent T10 leagues, which has made them habitual of scoring quick runs and taking crucial wickets. They have chosen the right squad and have a better bowling attack. While, it might be an uphill task for the Germans to compete well, but they are likely to rely on their batting prowess to win the match.
Almost all the squad members participated in the ECS T10 Bresica which was conducted earlier this year. They are coming into this tournament after a sufficient game time ahead of this tournament and will look to play well. The team’s bowlers will play a vital role in the success of the team due to their performances in Brescia. The top picks will be Hassan Ahmad and Janaka Wass.
The experienced campaigner was the highest run scorer in the ECS T10 Brescia 2021. He displayed terrific consistency in scoring runs at the top-order, and has a ability to attack and play responsible innings at the same time. In 9 matches, Hassan scored 274 runs at an average of 54.80 and can be a vice-captain pick for this fixture against Germany.
One of the most improved cricketers in the recent times, Janaka was impressive in both departments in the ECS T10 Brescia. He has the ability to pick wickets with the new ball and score crucial runs in the lower-order. In the ECS T10 Brescia, Janaka Wass picked 10 wickets and scored 112 runs and will be vital to the team’s campaign.
Captain: Baljit Singh
Wicket Keeper: Nisar Ahmed
Possible Top-4: Nisar Ahmed, Amir Sharif, Hassan Ahmad, Simranjit Singh
Pace Bowlers: Muhammad Imran, Ravi Paul, Amir Sharif

The Germany team has under performed in recent international T20I series, but they have a well built squad with a fine experience in the T10 format. The team has a solid batting department that is capable to destroy any bowling attack in small grounds like Cartama Oval, but will need the support of their bowlers. The top picks will be Rohit Singh and Shoaib Azam Khan.
The best pick for this game was terrific in the ECS T10 Dresden which was played earlier in the year. He was the best performer for the team with all-round contributions and helped his team to lift the title as well. In 10 matches, Rohit Singh smashed 234 runs at an average of 46.80 and also scalped 8 wickets at a fine average.
The leader of one of the teams in ECS T10 Dresden has been impactful with his contribution at the top-order. In his ECS carer, he has used his aggressive style of batting to boost the team and help them to post a good target, which will be very much needed in this tournament for Germany. In 18 appearances in the ECS matches, he has scored 436 runs at an average of 29.
