PCK vs PSV Dream11 prediction

PCK vs PSV best players for ECS T10 Prague fantasy team
Top tip: Best batsmen
PCK’s Sharan Ramakrishnan has been in blistering form of late. He has scored 63 runs in his last two matches and averages almost 50 points per game, which is the highest by any batsmen from both teams.
PSV, on the other hand, are bound to count on their opening batsman Kranthi Venkataswamy. The 36-year-old heads into the game on the back of a half-century and deserves a place in your fantasy team.
Top tip: Best bowlers
PCK’s Ali Sittar is a man in form. The 28-year-old has not only been economical this season but has managed to pick six wickets in his last four outings. He might be an expensive option, but he’s guaranteed to give you points.
PSV’s Shanmugham Ravi has had a similar impact for his team. Apart from being economical, he has picked four wickets in his last four matches and averages 36 points per game.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
PCK’s Sudesh Wickramasekara is a must-have player in your fantasy team. The 38-year-old has been scoring runs at will and has been picking wickets too, meaning that he is averaging 71.1 points per game. A no-brainer here.
As far as the wicket-keeper position is concerned, Shobhit Bhatia of PSV could be a decent pick. Besides scoring runs at the top of the order, his wicket-keeping skills can get you added points.
