PSV vs PBV Dream11 prediction
Both Vanguards and Vandals will head into this match on the back of consecutive wins in the ECS T10 Prague tournament and have momentum on their side.

An in-from PBV's only loss in the tournament has come against Group B table-toppers Brno Rangers.
PSV vs PBV best players
Top Tip: Best batsmen
Vanguards' Arman Bhuiyan has been a real point maker for fantasy team owners this season. Though the batsman has hardly clicked with the bat, his contributions with the ball has been a bonus for PSV. Tallying just 23 runs in four matches, Bhuiyan is still finding form with his bat but he has compensated with five wickets, garnering 241 points so far.
Sahil Grover has been PSV's highest point earner this season. Like Bhuiyan, the 32-year-old has also struggled for form with the bat, scoring 31 runs in four innings, but has chipped in with the ball at times. With 99 points, Grover could be a handy option.
Top Tip: Best bowlers
In Amritpal Rai, PBV possesses a brilliant bowling option who has been productive in almost every match that he has played. Rai has taken four wickets in five matches so far, collecting 235 points in the process.
For PSV, Farooq Abdullah Shaik has had a similar impact with the ball, picking up three wickets in five matches and having 128 fantasy points to his name.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
The real battle in this match will be between all-rounders Satyajit Sengupta of PSV and Sabawoon Davizi of PBV. Both players' superior form with both bat and ball have kept their respective teams in the top half of Group B. While Davizi has scored 164 runs and taken five wickets so far, Sengupta has tallied 101 runs and taken six wickets. However, Davizi's super batting form means that he has 575 fantasy points to his name as opposed to Sengupta's 385.
Among the wicket keepers from two teams, Divyendra Singh is ahead by quite a distance. Having scored 33 runs in four innings, Singh has pitched in with the ball as well and has 124 points.
