Live Scores and Stats - Luxembourg vs Sweden - Match 5

Boasting a long history of playing international cricket dating back to 2003, Luxembourg are the lowest ranked of the sides in Group A in the ICC T20 rankings at 54, but although slight underdogs, Luxembourg have absolutely nothing to lose.

Luxembourg's captain in the European Cricket Championship 2021 is Tony Whiteman. Akhilesh Kumar will don the big gloves for the side. He can also get help from Whiteman from time to time if the skipper fancies the wicket-keeping gloves.

Roshan Paul Vishwanath, Thomas Martin, Tony Whiteman, Aanand Pandey are the leading batsmen for Luxembourg while Raju Akulwar, Amit Dhingra, Ansh Trivedi are their top bowlers.

Spinners have already proved their worth in the ECS and if the conditions hold true, Harpal Virdee is expected to have a good time in the competition. If captain Tony Whiteman does not have the gloves on, he can also roll his arms over.

Currently ranked 45th in the ICC T20 Mens rankings, Sweden will be a fiercely competitive T10 unit as most of their line-up have impressed in a host of European Cricket Series tournaments staged in Sweden over the last two years.

Sweden will be captained by Abhijit Venkatesh in the European Cricket Championship. With Belgium, Luxembourg, Norway and Spain in the Group, Sweden will not find it easy, but they certainly have the ability to shine through.

Wicketkeeper Ismaeel Zia will play a crucial role for the side. He is not only impeccable behind the sticks, but has a tactical brain which helps him to keep manoeuvring the field throughout the bowling innings.

Sweden's projected top three batters are Share Ali, Rahel Khan, Azam Khalil. Khalid Azizi, Zabi Zahid, Qudratullah Mir Afzal have ample pace to unsettle the opposition. With Azam Khalil, Oktai Gholami, Rahel Khan giving it a tweak, Sweden's bowling line-up is a varied one.


Sweden - Abhijit Venkatesh, Azam Khalil, Hassan Mahmood, Humayun Kabir Jyoti, Imal Zuwak, Ismaeel Zia, Khalid Zahid, Oktai Gholami, Qudratullah Mir Afzal, Rahel Khan, Sami Rahmani, Share Ali, Zabi Zahid

Luxembourg - Aanand Pandey, Akhilesh Kumar, Amit Dhingra, Ansh Trivedi, Harpal Singh, Mohd Dilshad, Mohit Dixit, Oscar Whiteman, Raju Akulwar, Roshan Vishwanath, Sambhav Puri, Thomas Martin, Tony Whiteman
