Sivakumar Periyalwar, another current member of the national team, endured an ordinary campaign last season scoring 62 runs in four matches. The right-hander will be looking to turn things around this time. Played a nice little cameo of 14 off 5 balls. Would be looking to play a big knock on Wednesday.

BANEASA Key Players:
Sheriyar Sohail, left hand opening batsman and wicket-keeper, making his ECS debut, would be eager to perform on the grand stage of European Cricket. He loves playing cover drives.
Waqar Abbasi, right hand fast bowler and lower order batsman, capable of hitting long balls, finished top scorer for BAN with 60 runs and scalped two wickets in three games last year.
Abdul Shakoor, right handed middle order batsman, second highest run scorer for BAN last term racking up 56 runs in three games at a good strike rate of 193. Vice captain of the national side. Looked in good touch scoring an unbeaten 49 on Monday.
Cluj were mightily impressive in their opening games against previously unbeaten United and will be strong favourites to beat winless Baneasa who are yet to taste victory, including last season.
Last time they met: CLJ 94(9.2) def BAN 91 (12 Sep 2020)
Match Prediction: Cluj (CLJ) to win two entertaining affairs.
