Betting Tips

  • Hafnarfjodur Hammers’ first match of the ECS Iceland T10 tournament sees them take on Reykjavik Vikings.
  • The Hammers go into the tournament without a win in any format so far this season, losing all four matches they have played.

Chance of Winning



Our Prediction

Reykjavik Vikings are favourites to win

Hafnarfjodur Hammers vs Reykjavik Vikings, ECS T10 League, Iceland

Hafnarfjodur Hammers enter the fray at the ECS Iceland T10 tournament when they take on Reykjavik Vikings in the second match of day one. The game, on August 1 at the Vidistadatun Ground, Hafnarfjodur, is scheduled to start at 13:00 local time.

The Hammers are outsiders for this three-team tournament, having lost all four matches they have played in all formats so far this season. They open with back-to-back fixtures and need Mohammad Younus, their key all-rounder, to deliver if they are to upset the odds.

Reykjavik Vikings are favourites for this game therefore. Their key all-rounder is Lakmal Bandara and they go into this game fresh from taking on Kopavogur Puffins in their opening match.

Hafnarfjoraur Hammers Team News & Playing 11

HFJ Team News

Hafnarfjodur Hammers have only played four matches so far this season so there line-up is open to change. Lee Nelson could keep wicket and open the batting with captain Mohammad Younus.

HFJ Key Players

  • Lee Nelson: The wicket-keeper opens the batting and, while it is a small sample so far, he leads the Hammer’s batting too.
  • Mohammad Younus: Alongside Nelson at the top of the order, he top-scored when the Hammers last played and also claimed three wickets.
  • Nolan Williams: A useful bowling option and in the wickets last time out, he has been a consistent wicket-taker over the seasons.

Final Verdict

Hafnarfjodur Hammers to beat Reykjavik Vikings

HFJ vs RKJ Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket-keeper(s)

    Chamley Brendon Fernando is a key batsman for the Vikings and at nine credits he looks good value. He is not the only one worth picking though, as you could say exactly the same thing about Lee Nelson for the Hammers. Both should be selected – although it does cost you an all-rounder place.

  • Batsmen

    Max Sandaru is nine credits, while Agha Khan and Javed Khan both come in at 8.5 credits. All three have the potential to make their mark with the bat. Sandaru is the more prominent but with so many all-rounders in the top order, choices are admittedly limited.

  • All-rounder(s)

    Of those all-rounders, Derick Deonarain may have to be the one to miss out. That is because Lakmal Bandara and Mohammad Younus are key all-round picks for their respective teams and Vikings’ captain Sadun Lanathilaka is among their leading bowlers. You are spoiled for choice.

  • Bowlers

    That is less true of the bowlers, but Prabhath Weerasooriya is in decent enough wicket-taking form for the Vikings. That leaves two Hammers’ spaces and Nolan Williams is a long-serving key bowler while Abdur Rehman also comes in at nine credits. You can afford all three top-priced bowlers so why not?

  • Captain/vice-captain

    Lakmal Bandara is top of the batting and bowling charts for Reykjavik Vikings so far this season so he looks a key choice for Dream 11 captain. Mohammad Younus could be the key man for the Hammers, meanwhile and may make a decent vice-captain.

HFJ vs RKJ Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Max Sandaru, Agha Khan, Javed Khan

  • All Rounder:Lakmal Bandara (c), Sadun Lankathilaka, Mohammad Younus

  • Wicket Keeper:Chamley Fernando, Lee Nelson

  • Bowler:Prabhath Weerasooriya, Nolan Williams, Abdur Rehman
