The second qualifier of ECS T10 Hungary 2021 will see Budapest Blinders (BUB) taking on United Csalad (UCB) at the GB Oval, Szodliget in Hungary on Saturday, July 3.
While United Csalad defeated last year’s finalists Cobra Cricket Club (COB) in the eliminator to reach the second qualifier, Budapest Blinders will get a second chance after being beaten by defending champions Royal Tigers (ROT) in the first qualifier.
BUB vs UCB Dream11 prediction
Picking a favourite will be tricky coming to the BUB vs UCB match. The two teams have clashed twice in the league stages with a win apiece. While the first match had seen United Csalad beating Budapest Blinders by 11 runs, the Blinders had avenged the loss by a 32-run win in the second match.
However, UCB head into this match with three wins on the trot with momentum clearly on their side as compared to BUB, who lost to ROT in the afternoon itself.
BUB vs UCB Dream11 team tips for ECS T10 Hungary
BUB opener Abbas Ghani was brilliant against Royal Tigers in qualifier one. His knock of 52 runs off 20 balls had propelled the Blinders to a great start. Ghani is expected to click for the second time on Saturday and is a must-have in any fantasy team.
UCB skipper Vinoth Ravindran has led the team from the front in the most literal manner. Opening the innings for his side, he has been their best batsman throughout the tournament and was their best performer in the last match against Cobra CC. His score of 65 in 27 balls was the perfect start UCB needed to chase down 128 runs in 10 overs
Despite Royal Tigers' comprehensive win, BUB's Izhar Khan put up a good fight and was the only lethal bowler against the defending champions. His return of 2/26 kept the Tigers at bay for long, and fantasy team owners will hope he can repeat his bowling performance again.
While another UCB opener Hasan Ashfaq was the wrecker-in-chief with the ball on Saturday, it was Kamran Shah's 2/20 that really turned the tide for Csalad in the knockout match. Though Shah hasn't played many games for UCB this season, he could prove to be the differential for fantasy team owners ahead of the second qualifier.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Ravindran's opening partner Hassan Ashfaq can be a brilliant all-round option. Apart from his sumptuous knocks in the top order, the batsman has also chipped in with the ball with his most recent exploits being a two-wicket haul against Cobra CC in the eliminator.
There cannot be a better wicket-keeping option than Vinoth Ravindran, going into this fixture. Not only is the opener likely to face more balls than his teammates, but his superior form also means that he could fetch high bonus points.
BUB vs UCB probable playing XI
Budapest Blinders playing XI (probable): Abbas Ghani, Mahela Daub, Ali Farasat, Maaz Bhaiji (wicket-keeper), Sandeep Mohandas, Steffan Gooch (captain), Salman Khan, Danyal Akbar, Nisantha Liyanage, Asanka Weligamage, Izhar Khan
