Preview for Dream11 Fantasy

It’s match number eight and Levante C.C will be in action for the first time. Out of the six teams, four have already played one game on the first day and Levante C.C along with Madrid United C.C play their first game on the second day. Levante C.C play their first game against Madrid United C.C before squaring off against the current table-toppers Pinatar Pirates C.C who have been really good in this tournament so far.

Sporting Alfas C.C beat them comprehensively in the first game but they came back strongly. They won their next two games against Intellectuals C.C and La Manga C.C to move to the top of the table. Moreover, both those wins were convincing as well. They are looking pretty strong at the moment.

Weather Condition/Report

Alicante is set to experience a largely cloudy day. However, there is absolutely no rain predictions. The temperatures will hover around 21 degrees and humidity won’t be much either. Humidity will range largely under 40% throughout the day.


Pitch Condition/Report

This is going to be the fourth game of the day. 80 overs of cricket would’ve been already played on it. But it is likely to be a good batting surface. The ball will most likely come on to the bat nicely and we could be in for a high-scoring game.

Average first innings score – 104 (considering the first four games of this tournament)

Wins batting first – 2 Chasing – 2
