Prague CC Kings (PCK) will lock horns with Cluj (CLJ) in the eighth Group C encounter of European Cricket League 2022 at the Cartama Oval in Malaga, Spain on Tuesday, February 22. The match will start at 5:30 PM IST.
PCK vs CLJ Dream11 prediction
Led by captain Arun Ashokan, Prague CC Kings thrashed Zeytinburnu Zafer by 10 wickets in their opening match of ECL 2022. Formed in 1997, PCK have been the most dominant club in Czech cricketing history, winning the T20 League Division for three successive years from 2018 to 2020. Prague CC Kings also clinched the ECS T10 Prague title last year after defeating Vinohrady CC by nine wickets in the final.
On the other hand, Cluj also made a winning start to their ECL 2022 campaign after pipping Brescia by just one run in a thrilling encounter. Furthermore, the Arun Kumar-led CLJ have entered the ECL tournament as winners of ECS T10 Romania 2021 and will be eager to continue their impressive T10 record.
However, going by experience and team combination, Prague CC Kings will have an edge over Cluj on Tuesday.
PCK vs CLJ Dream11 team tips for European Cricket League 2022
Top Tip: Best batter
Prague CC Kings captain Arun Ashokan will be the batter to watch out for against Cluj. The 28-year-old forged an unbeaten 56-run opening stand with Hilal Ahmad to secure a 10-wicket win over Zeytinburnu Zafer on Monday. Ashokan was also the standout batter for his side last year, amassing 212 runs in 10 matches at a strike rate of 135.03.
Top Tip: Best bowler
In the bowling department, one must pick Prague CC Kings’ Sameera Maduranga in your fantasy cricket team. Maduranga picked two crucial wickets against Zeytinburnu Zafer, giving away just four runs in his quota of two overs. The right-arm pacer has bagged nine wickets in 17 T10 matches at an economy of 6.74.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
As far as all-rounders are concerned, Cluj’s Abdul Asif will be the overwhelming choice for this clash. He scored a blitzkrieg 22-ball 38 and also claimed one wicket against Brescia on Monday. Having already accrued 120 fantasy points, Abdul Asif will be a worthy fantasy pick at 9 credits.
For the wicket-keeper spot, Satwik Nadigotla of Cluj pips Prague CC Kings’ Hilal Ahmad due to his consistency with the bat. Nadigotla smashed 28 off just 20 balls against Brescia to give his side a quick-fire start. At 9 credits, he could be a valuable addition to any fantasy team.
