The European Cricket Network live broadcasts the 2020 Dream11 European Cricket Series Kummerfeld encounter between VFB Fallersleben and MTV Stallions.
Tune in to the live action Wednesday from 11:30am CEST * 10:30am UK * 9:30am GMT * 3pm IST from the Kummerfeld Sports Verein ground in Germany.
Team Preview for VFB Fallersleben
The Wolfsburg club have had a horror start to the tournament, without a win in three appearances. With Germany’s ECL19 representatives SG Findorff waiting for them in their final preliminary match, this is probably their best chance to register a win in Kummerfeld.
Captain: Shivaray Jan
Main Wicket-Keeper: Saran Kannan
Saran Kannan has looked good at times opening the batting. He must go on with the job if they are going to post a competitive score and put the Stallions under pressure.
Ankit Tomar has shown patches of brilliance but has been inconsistent. Can he step up to help his side cause an upset?
Mahesh Badhe has been an effective bowler at times, picking up 2 for 5 in his last match.
Team Preview for MTV Stallions
MTV Stallions sit outside the four on net run rate, but they play all three of their remaining preliminary matches in a row on Wednesday. They must win two of them if they are to be sure of a place in Friday Finals.
Captain: Gaurav Singh-Rathore
Main Wicket-Keeper: Brijesh Prajapati
Basit Orya hasn’t quite rediscovered his big-hitting form from the Hannover Hitout, but I feel like this is the match that could get him going. He will open the batting and is also likely to send down some of his in-swingers.
Suraj Lal Putta-Motilal will open with Orya and this is a great chance for him to hit his straps. He will need to be consistent at the top of the order if MTV are to advance to the final stages of the tournament.
Ujwal Gadiraju has been the most economical of the MTV bowlers so far in Kummerfeld, and I feel like he might be able to pick up some well-deserved wickets in this match.
Mr Maximo’s tip: MTV Stallions
MTV have to go hard or go home on Wednesday, and I mean that quite literally. Nothing less than a comprehensive win against VFB keeps them on track for the business end of the week. VFB have one foot on the bus back to Wolfsburg and don’t seem like they have what it takes to challenge MTV who desperately need this game to go their way. The Stallions to gallop home in this one.
