Two teams without a win so far take on each other as THCC Hamburg (THCC) play host to VFB Fallersleben (VFB) in the 29th match of the ECS T10 Kiel 2021 at the Kiel Cricket Ground.
After two rounds of fixtures, both THCC and VFB are reeling for results and sit fourth and fifth in Group B. The only thing separating the two is the net run rate (NRR). THCC are fourth on the points table with an NRR of -0.746, while VFB sit fifth with a mountain to climb, having an NRR of -3.800.
THCC vs VFB Dream11 prediction
While both the teams are on the same front - result wise - VFB have suffered heavy defeats and have shown relative weakness in batting. If THCC can exploit that rightly, they could get their first win of the season. Hence, one can expect THCC to win this game.
THCC vs VFB best players
Top Tip: Best batsmen
THCC’s Abhi Jha might have missed the trick in the previous game, but he showed quality in his team’s opening match against SC Europa, scoring 41 off 33 balls. With VFB’s bowling attacking leaking runs, one can expect him to do similar damage.
As far as VFB are concerned, Vedant Shetye remains the best bet. The batsman has scored 41 runs in two innings, which has come at a strike rate of 124.24. Therefore, he could be a decent option to go with for your fantasy cricket team.
Top Tip: Best bowlers
Like VFB, THCC, too, have shown a deficiency in bowling. That said, Michael Anderson seems like an ideal choice as although he has taken a solitary wicket in two matches, he has done so at an excellent economy of 4.90.
For VFB, it’s the other way around. While three bowlers have picked three wickets so far, all of them have conceded over 10 runs per over. And hence, Yogesh Pai should find a place in your team given that his economy is the best (10.25) from the lot.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
THCC’s Angus Pickering is an outright choice for an all-rounder. The 25-year-old is coming on the back of a scintillating inning of 49 runs and taking four wickets as well. You might as well make him the captain for this game.
No wicket-keeper from either side has managed to make a significant impact so far because they haven’t got an opportunity to bat. So it all comes down to personal preference, which is Rohit Koul of VFB for us.
