The 18th match of the ECS T10 Prague 2021 will see in-form teams Brno Rangers (BRG) taking on Prague Spartans Vanguards (PSV) at the Vinor Cricket Ground on Friday, May 7.
Starting their ECS T10 Prague campaign after Prague Spartans Vanguards and Prague Barbarians Vandals (PBV), Brno Rangers registered consecutive victories on Thursday to move atop the Group B table with four points.
On the other hand, the Spartans Vanguards currently sit third in the Group B points table after winning two matches. However, their inferior net run rate (NRR) of 0.206 keeps them below PBV who lost on Thursday but sit on second with an NRR is 2.829.
PSV vs BRG Dream11 prediction
BRG, the winners of the Czech Super Series Week 4 2020, will easily be the favourites in the match against PSV on Friday. Thursday saw the Rangers defeating United CC by 7 runs before registering a comprehensive 32-run victory against the Vandals. PSV, despite their decent form, are unlikely to stop BRG’s relentless run.
Top Tip: Best Batsmen
The enigmatic Dylan Steyn remains BRG's best bet with the bat at the moment. After scoring a quickfire 40 in the first match against UCC, the batsman hit seven boundaries to score a fifty against the Vandals. His 30-balls 57 ensured that BRG made a strong start and posted a mammoth total of 105 runs in 10 overs.
For PSV, Satyajit Sengupta has clearly been the best player after the first two games. While his bowling and fielding have been praiseworthy, he has been handy with the willow as well, scoring 58 runs in two matches.
Top Tip: Best Bowler
Zain Tariq should definitely be your pick of the bowlers from BRG. Like Sengupta, Tariq has been handy with both the bat and the ball but it was his spell of 2/7 in one over against the Vandals that makes him a must-have for this clash.
Without a doubt, PSV's go-to bowler will be Arman Bhuiya. The player has changed the course of the game in his team's favour with four wickets in two matches with his best figures being 3/11.
Top Tip: All-Rounders
Satyajit Sengupta becomes your pick again. Apart from scoring 58 runs, he also has a wicket to his name and currently sits with 139 fantasy points.
PSV’s Varun Mehta will easily triumph Rangers’ Ushan Gunathilake as your man behind the stumps. With one catch and dismissal in two matches, Mehta has 25 points to his name.
