The two struggling teams of Group B in the ECS T10 Prague 2021 tournament, Prague CC Rooks and United CC will battle it out at the Vinor Cricket Ground in the 20th match of the tournament.
Prague CC Rooks have had an underwhelming start to their campaign, losing both games and are currently dwelling at the bottom of Group B with a negative net run rate (NRR) of -2.476.
Though United CC are yet to win a match themselves, the side looked sharp against Brno Rangers on Thursday and their narrow loss sees them sit fourth in the table with an NRR of -0.693.
PCR vs UCC Dream11 prediction
Though both teams have remained winless in the tournament so far, United CC will come into the game as the favourites given their morale-boosting performance against Brno Rangers on Thursday, where United CC lost by seven runs.
Apart from that, some individual performers in the UCC team have been impressive in the likes of Ayush Sharma and Pramod Bagauly, who are expected to rise to the occasion.
Top Tip: Best Batsmen
For Prague CC Rooks, Jinu Panilet will be the man to watch out for. Though the batsman is yet to click so far this season, he sits atop the list of highest run-scorer for the team with 29 runs in two matches. With a strike rate of 103.57, Panilet hit one boundary and a maximum in his knock of 27 runs last game.
Listed as an allrounder, Ayush Sharma remained the best batsman for United CC as his 27-balls-37 runs remained his team's biggest chance of chasing the target set by Brno Rangers, which eventually ended in a losing cause. Ayush is the highest run-scorer for his team as well, with 82 runs in three matches.
Top Tip: Best Bowler
Though Pramod Bagauly went wicketless against Brno Rangers on Thursday, he still remains United CC's best bowler with three wickets to his name. With his best bowling figures reading 2/10, Bagauly will be a threat for Prague CC batsmen.
Despite the team's poor form and horrid opening to the campaign, Naveen Padmaraju has kept on working his magic with the leather in hand. Playing two matches, Padmaraju has scalped three wickets in four overs, conceding just 21 runs in the process. He also enjoys a strike rate of 8.
Top Tip: Best All-rounder
In terms of who could be the better bet behind the stumps, Abhimanyu Singh and Chetan Sharma remain the main contenders - and both are from the United CC team. However, Chetan Sharma has executed one catch and one dismissal so far and should definitely be in your team.
As far as points go, Padmaraju tops with 161 points. The PCR man has 25 runs in two matches apart from picking three wickets as well. He is followed by UCC's Bagauly with 114 points but it is the former who should be a safe pick.

Prague CC Rooks probable playing XI: Karthick Gopalakrishnan, Jinnu Panilet, Kasi Viswanathan, Naveen Padmaraju (captain), Naveen Gunasekaran, Jahangir Wani, Rohit Deshmoyni, Jeet Shah (wicket-keeper), Vinod Suthar, Christopher Tebb, Dipankumar Patel
