Vinohrady CC’s run rate and form guide give them a narrow edge against Prague Barbarians Vandals, but one can expect a tough contest in the second quarter-final of ECS T10 Prague.
VCC vs PBV Best players
Top tip: Best batsmen
Sahil Grover of PBV has scored 85 runs in seven games so far and is the top batter to watch out for in the second ECS T10 Prague quarter-final. With an average and strike rate of 42.50 and 146.55 respectively, Grover is someone to cash on into your fantasy cricket team.
VCC’s Siddarth Goud is someone well-placed to make an impact. Having smashed 11 boundaries and three sixes at a strike rate of 137.23, Goud is tipped to take PBV’s bowlers to the cleaners.
Top tip: Best bowlers
Venkatesh Margasahayam from VCC enters the contest as the most rewarded player, as he has stacked 356 fantasy points. Venkatesh has taken eight wickets at an economy rate of 6.34 and is likely to frustrate PBV on a ground which averages 95 for teams batting first.
PBV, on the flip side, will look up to Amritpal Rai. The second-highest wicket-taker for Prague Barbarians Vandals bagged a solitary wicket in his previous outing and will be hungry for more.
Top tip: All-rounder and wicket-keeper
It’s a no-brainer that Sabawoon Davizi should be the top pick as an all-rounder or a captain in your fantasy team. With 227 runs and 10 wickets, Davizi has been rewarded a whopping 731 fantasy points and is a contender for the Player of the Tournament.
Chris Pearce is touted as a budget pick for a fantasy team in the VCC vs PBV fixture, solely on the basis of him leading the dismissals chart by a fielder. The wicket-keeper has accounted for six stumpings as part of seven dismissals, meaning the opposition batter must be alert at all times in the fixture.
