Without a win in all of their four games of the ongoing ECS T10 Prague 2021 season, Brno Raiders (BRD) are set to take on Bohemian Cricket Club (BCC) in the 37th match of the competition on Thursday, May 13 at the Vinor Cricket Ground.
The two teams have already met once this season and it was a game of sheer dominance of BCC. Saqlain Mukhtar and Zahid Mahmood played crucial roles with the bat as their side posted 94/3 in 10 overs. Later on, Saurabh Kakaria and Ali Waqar combined for five wickets to restrict BRD at 53/8. BCC won the game by 41 runs.
BRD vs BCC Dream11 Prediction
On paper, both BRD and BCC have struggled for results this season, but the latter managed to win two games, meaning that they sit third in Group A. A win over BRD on Thursday, however, wouldn’t change much as second-placed Vinohrady CC are still four points clear of them.
With momentum on their side, one can safely put their money on a BCC win.
BRD vs BCC Best Players
Top-Tip: Best Batsmen
While BRD’s campaign has been plagued by extreme inconsistency so far, a certain Ashish Matta has managed to score runs quite regularly so much so that he averages 33.5 points per game. A no-brainer in the team.
For BCC, Saqlain Mukhtar can be your go-to man. He may have struggled for runs in the last couple of games, but has made up for this by his bowling, meaning that he averages more than 19 points per game.
Top-Tip: Best Bowlers
Suresh Ramarao averages 0.8 wickets per match at the Vinor Cricket Ground and remains the safest option to go with. He has picked three wickets in four matches this season and averages a decent return of 36 points per game.
There are a couple of bowling options to choose from as far as BCC are concerned, but judging by the current form, Ali Waqar could be the man to go with. He has picked four wickets in his last three matches and has done so with an excellent economy. Not to forget that he averages 39 points per game.
Top Tip: Best All-rounder and wicket-keeper
There isn’t much competition in the all-rounder’s department, and hence, Arunkumar Vasudevan of BRD should be your pick. The 27-year-old has picked a wicket and has chipped in with crucial runs too, meaning that he returns with an average of 28 points per game.
For wicket-keeper, there’s no one better than BRD’s Sureshkumar Nagraj. The 38-year-old has scored 78 runs in four matches this season and has also picked a wicket. A handy option to go with.
