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 49 runs from three innings, 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 five wickets and is leading run scorer for THCC with 92 runs from three innings.

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.

Sunny Rai, all-rounder, man of the match in VFB’s only win so far, contributing with bat and ball. Has racked up 61 runs and picked up five wickets.

 



THCC Hamburg have looked good in patches until being completely steamrolled by KSV in their last outing, while VFB picked up their first win of the campaign against SCE .

Match Prediction: Both these sides have struggled so far and are likely to share the spoils with a win a piece in this double header.
