The 15th match of ECS T10 Romania 2021 will see Asian Cricket Club Bucharest (ACCB) taking on Cluj (CLJ) at the Moara Vlasiei Cricket Ground, Ilfov County, Bucharest on Thursday, July 15.
ACCB have played six matches in the league so far, winning four and losing twice. They sit on top of the standings with eight points and a net run rate of 2.704. Meanwhile, Cluj have played four matches so far, winning all of them and are currently second on the table with eight points and an NRR of 2.635.
ACCB vs CLJ Dream11 prediction
Cluj head into this fixture on the back of four consecutive wins and will be the favourites to extend their winning run to five matches. Defending Champions ACCB’s run in the tournament has been erratic so far and while they are expected to reach the knockout stage, they are unlikely to outplay an in-from CLJ unit.
ACCB vs CLJ Dream11 team tips for ECS Romania T10
Top tip: Best batsmen
Gohar Manan of ACCB has been in great form this season. Tallying 214 runs in five matches, Manan is averaging 53.30 at a strike rate of 281.57. He is a must-have batsman for this fixture.
Cluj's Taranjeet Singh has also been firing on all cylinders. In four matches, the batsman has tallied 210 runs with his highest being an unbeaten knock of 94. He already has two half-centuries to his name and is expected to score big against ACCB.
Top tip: Best bowlers
ACCB skipper Sukhbinder Singh has been the leading wicket-taker for his team this season. He has five wickets in just as many matches at a strike rate of 9.60 and will be ACCB's biggest weapon against a high-flying Cluj side, making him someone fantasy team owners can bank on.
For Cluj, Vasu Saini has been instrumental with the ball. He has five scalps in four matches so far, with his best return being 3/20 in two overs. Fantasy team owners can rely on his form for Thursday's fixture.
Top tip: All-rounder and wicket-keeper
Taranjeet Singh will be the best all-rounder option in this fixture. Apart from his 200 plus run tally, Taranjeet has also taken five wickets in four matches and is a point-getter fantasy owners crave for.
Cluj's wicket-keeper Satwik Nadigotia is proving to be a vital lower-order batsman. His 23-ball-40 against UNI on Tuesday caught eyeballs and fantasy owners could gamble on his hard-hitting prowess to get more points.
