He was also the leading wicket taker for Romania in the recently concluded Sofia Twenty20 picking up seven wickets. His economy rate has been high, but has picked up FIVE wickets in four games leading the wickets column for his side..
Imran Haider, one of the most senior cricketers in Romania and represented United last term scoring over 50 runs. His previous ECS experience will come in handy for newcomers BUG. Has racked up 47 runs so far including a man of the match award as well.
Patras Masih, a classy right handed middle order batsman, loves playing through the covers, is a fine pacer with a natural ability to swing the ball. Scored 72 runs at a SR of 185 and picked up three wickets as well.
BUG will be refreshed after a day off from the action and will still be basking in the glow of their shock victory over ACCB. Facing a struggling Baneasa side that still seeks a first ever ECS win in two years, BUG should be full of confidence to back up their opening win.
