Projected Top Four: Abhinand Jha, Campbell Jefferys, Behram Ali, Abhik Jana

Projected Opening Bowlers: Rohan Phadke, Angus Pickering

Spin Options: Behram Ali, Mithun Jakati

 

THCC HAMBURG Key Players:

Abhik Jana, captain, an outstanding all-round cricketer, able to bat for long periods and bowl consistent spells, stops everything that comes his way in the field and keeps everyone's spirits high with his positive attitude.

Abhinand Jha, towering all-rounder who can bat anywhere and take key wickets with his medium-pacers moving the ball both ways, part of the cricket scene in Germany for 13 years and previously in Germany’s T20 squad in 2014. Racked up 44 runs from two games on Saturday, but could do with upping his scoring rate.

Angus Pickering, the Englishman is the newest member of THCC, boasts the rare feat of having taken 10 wickets in an innings, strikes the ball hard and is a smart pace bowler who uses a variety of slower ball variations. Picked up four wickets and scored 49 in his only innings on Saturday.

Rohan Phadke, bowling all-rounder and superb fielder, key new-ball bowler for THCC, consistently hits good lengths  and can shape the ball into the batsman and move it away, has a deceptive slower one as well.

 

THCC twice came unstuck against an experienced SCE outfit, while KSV, as expected, proved too good for VFB. KSV will be expecting similar results against THCC, who are getting their tough fixtures out of the way early in the group stages.

 

Match Prediction: Kummerfelder Sportverein (KSV) to win both contests comfortably.
