Kashif Shahab, reliable all-rounder and all-time club leading wicket taker.
Nilay Patel, stroke maker and gun fielder, loves playing the lofted drive, will be the key man in the middle overs.
The two sides have contrasting histories with Dusseldorf Blackcaps being the more experienced side with multiple state and national championships. Formed earlier this year, Bayer Uerdingen Wolves are a very new side but do enjoy the benefit of home advantage. With nothing to lose, BUW will be seeking to upset a vastly more experienced Dusseldorf side.
Match Prediction: Dusseldorf Blackcaps (DB) to win with plenty to spare.
