Prague CC Kings and Vinohrady CC will battle for bragging rights in the ECS T10 Prague final at the Vinor Cricket Ground on Saturday.
PCK and VCC will face off in a championship match for the first time since the final in the previous edition in October 2020, which Prague CC Kings won by eight wickets.
Prague CC Kings, who topped Group A, secured a 65-run victory over Prague Spartans Vanguards in the semi-final to book their second consecutive final.
Vinohrady CC, meanwhile, pulled off a 32-run win to set up a meeting with Prague CC Kings while seeking revenge for missing out on the title last term. Furthermore, VCC will take confidence from the fact they were the only team to beat PCK this season.
PCK vs VCC Dream11 prediction
Both Prague CC Kings and Vinohrady CC ended the group stage with an equal tally of points (13) and results (six wins, one loss and one N/R), but it is PCK who have the edge in the contest due to their impressive net run rate.
That being said, the performances of PCK’s players also provide a monumental advantage to the defending champions’ quest to retain the trophy.
ECS T10 Prague fantasy team picks for PCK vs VCC
Top tip: Best batsmen
PCK captain Arun Ashokan has pivoted his team into their second ECS T10 Prague final, contributing 204 runs at an impressive strike rate of 138.25. Having forged a strong batting combination with leading run-getter Sudesh Wickramasekara, Ashokan will be eager to showcase why he is rewarded with 413 fantasy points ahead of the championship match.
Nirmal Kumar is VCC’s best bet in the batting department. Nirmal has tallied 207 fantasy points and despite a few ups-and-downs, Vinohrady CC remain confident of their batter piling up the runs.
Top tip: Best bowlers
Venkatesh Margasahayam is the pick of the bowlers for the ECS T10 Prague final between Prague CC Kings and Vinohrady CC. Venkatesh has accounted for eight wickets at an economy rate of 6.34 and should be an automatic starter in your fantasy team considering he enjoys a tally of 374 fantasy points.
PCK’s Ali Hassan Sittar is poised to be a gamechanger with the ball against VCC. The bowler might be the most expensive amongst all Prague CC Kings bowlers but given his haul of seven wickets, Hassan Sittar is backed to spell trouble for VCC’s batters.
