The second semi-final of the ECS Prague T10 League 2021 will see a dominant Brno Rangers (BRG) team taking on Vinohrady CC (VCC) at the Vinor Cricket Ground on Saturday, May 15.
BRG are the only team this season yet to lose a game. They finished the group stage at the top of Group B after winning six of the eight matches. Two matches were abandoned due to rain and points were thus shared.
VCC, on the other hand, finished second in their group. They had equal points as group leaders Prague CC Kings, but finished second due to an inferior run-rate.
VCC vs BRG Dream11 prediction
BRG have momentum on their side and will undoubtedly be the favourites. Although, one cannot overlook VCC either. Apart from their previous game which was washed out due to rain, VCC have won their last four matches in the competition. Even though both teams are evenly matched, BRG can be expected to shade the game based on their form this season.
VCC vs BRG best players; picks for ECS T10 Prague fantasy cricket team
Top tip: Best batsmen
For VCC, batting has been a little concern, but a certain Nirmal Kumar has managed to be among the points. The middle-order batsman is averaging a little more than 20 points per game and remains your safest bet.
It goes without saying that BRG’s Ali Kashif is a must-have player in the fantasy team. The 29-year-old opener is averaging 53 points per game and has been a handy option with the ball too. He isn’t a bad pick to be your captain either.
Top Tip: Best bowlers
VCC’s Venkatesh Margasahayam is an option to consider. While he hasn’t picked many wickets, he has managed to bowl economical spells in each of his last four outings.
BRG’s Sandeep Tiwari had a slow start to the season, but has now picked his moment. The 36-year-old has picked three wickets in his last two matches and is definitely one to keep an eye on.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
VCC’s Ritik Tomar has been a revelation this season. The all-rounder, who opens the batting for his team has scored runs at will and has been among wickets too. He is averaging 54.1 points per game and is someone who should be in your team.
Among wicket-keepers, BRG’s Jan Hoffman can be the safest option to go with as he averages almost 25 points per game.
