VCC vs PCK Dream11 prediction
While Vinohrady CC will fancy their chances to make it two consecutive wins against Prague CC Kings, the defending champions are the most successful club in Czech cricketing history, having won the T20 league Division 1, three years in succession from 2018-2020. However, going by current form, Vinohrady CC will start as favourites against Prague CC Kings on Wednesday.
