RCD vs FBL Dream11 prediction

It certainly is a no-brainer that Rugby Cricket Dresden (RCD) will start as the outright favourites to win the game against Fuchse Berlin Lions (FBL). RCD's prior experience in ECS T10 Dresden give them a psychological edge in the contest but debutants FBL are likely to put up some resistance against the Bronze Final winners of the 2020 edition. 

RCD vs FBL Dream11 team tips for ECS T10 Dresden 2021

Top tip: Best batsman

Sandeep Kamboj top-scored for RCD in ECS T10 Germany Dresden 2020 and will start as the top batter for the series opener in 2021. With a career strike rate of 143.57, fantasy cricket owners can safely place their money on Sandeep to go all guns blazing. 

Top tip: Best bowler

RCD's Kapil Chandnani bagged 16 wickets to finish as the leading wicket-taker in the previous edition, and the medium-pacer is backed to replicate the exploits with a fine spell against FBL.

Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicketkeeper

For Fuchse Berlin Lions, Tharanga Loku Liyana will be the dangerman in the RCD vs FBL tie. Liyana is more of a bowling all-rounder and his impressive bowling for Berlin Lions First XI in 2020 (19 wickets) makes him likely to shine with the ball for the ECS T10 Dresden 2021 newcomers.

FBL's Indika Gunasekara is tipped as the first-choice pick among wicket-keepers for the RCD vs FBL clash in ECS T10 Dresden 2021. The wicket-keeper-batsman averaged 44 fantasy cricket points per game making him an undroppable player.
