Table-toppers Indo-Bulgarian CC (INB) take on bottom dwellers Barbarians (BAR) in the 17th match of ECS Bulgaria T10 2021 on Friday, July 9 at the Vassil Levski National Sports Academy in Sofia.

INB are in good form this season, winning all of their four games in fine fashion. BAR, on the other hand, have managed just a solitary win in their six games so far as they sit fourth on the table.

INB vs BAR Dream11 prediction

While INB’s first two games were close encounters, they breezed past VTU-MU Pleven rather easily in their following games. On the contrary, all of Barbarians’ games this season have been low-scoring encounters, showing the team’s evident weakness in batting. So if one has to choose a winner, Indo-Bulgarian CC are the clear favourites.

INB vs BAR Dream11 team tips for ECS Bulgaria T10

INB’s middle-order batsman, Agagyul Ahmadhel has been in fine form so far, scoring 42 runs in four games at a strike rate of 210. The 20-year-old is averaging 21.3 fantasy points per game and should find a place in your fantasy team.

For BAR, Mohammad Fayaz remains the outright choice. The veteran batsman has been his team’s highest run-scorer, having accumulated 61 runs in five innings. This has come at a strike rate of 148.78. The opener is averaging 36 fantasy points per game and deserves a place in your team too.

Rohit Dhiman of INB can be the safest pick amongst the bowlers. The 32-year-old has picked four wickets in as many matches and has bowled at an economy of just over seven. Furthermore, the fact that he is averaging 54 fantasy points per game is enough to get him in your squad.
