Projected Top Four: Vaibhav Patil, Chanti Pasupuleti, Arun Kumar, Amar Shankarappa

Projected Opening Bowlers: Sandan Chintanippu, Vaibhav Patil

Spin Options: Amar Shankarappa, Anilchandra Kavi



Arun Kumar, wicket keeper batsman, a talented middle-order batsman with the ability to hold innings together and go for big shots at end of the innings. 

Chanti Pasupuleti, the right handed opener is capable of playing shots all over the park and is especially elegant through the off-side. Scored 30 runs on Saturday.

Vaibhav Patil, hard hitting opening batsman, can also bowl medium pace and can be quite effective in the middle overs. The all-rounder scored 23 runs and picked up two wickets on Saturday.

Ravi Vanukuri, right hand batsman and death over specialist with the ball. Bowls some tight lines and is capable of controlling the run flow. Top scorer for BICA on Saturday scoring 36 runs in two games.


Founded in 2018, USC Magdeburg (USCM) is a relatively new club but boast an array of young and experienced talent in their ranks. It will be interesting to see how USCM fare on their first appearance on the grand stage of European Cricket.

Fellow newcomers Berlin International Cricket Academy (BICA) lost two last-over thrillers at the weekend, paying the price for some late lapses of concentration. BICA will have to bounce back quickly and have the advantage in the opener as USCM gets used to the conditions. 


Match Prediction: USC Magdeburg and BICA to share the spoils on Monday.
