Hazrat Said, a young fast bowler, has impressed with his speed and accuracy with the ball, is leading the wicket taking charts for KSV picking up seven victims from seven overs at an economy of six!
Victor Moyo, tall all-rounder, has been impressive with the ball picking up five wickets so far. He would love to fire with the bat as well.
PSV return to the action after their double header against VFB. Irrespective of the earlier results, KSV are a step up in class, although PSV were good enough to bowl KSV for only 53 in the opening game of the Dream11 European Cricket Series Kummerfeld last summer. PSV topped the group with four wins in five games, before KSV gained revenge in the semi-finals on their way to the title. On the face of it, PSV would appear the more likely of the two teams to challenge KSV on Wednesday, but in the third outing of the day there's bound to be some tired legs and minds in the PSV camp.
Last time they met: KSV 89(8.1) def PSV 88 (3 Jul 2020)
Match Prediction: Kummerfelder Sportverein (KSV) to win an entertaining match with plenty of huge hits.
