UNITED CSALAD Key Players:
Vinoth Ravindran, right-hand batter and medium-fast bowler. One of the best cricketers in Hungary. A true asset for the team. Mullered a brilliant 78 off 31 balls to take his side to a debut victory. He is currently the second highest scorer with 273 runs to his name at a staggering SR of 227.5.
Amit Parihar, boasts previous ECS experience playing for Dunabogdany CC. Sure to be a factor with bat and ball. Second highest wicket taker for UCB picking up FIVE wickets and has also mustered 49 runs.
Ashrith Darapureddy, classic top order batsman who is a huge addition to the UCB ranks. A genuine off break mystery spinner who can also take responsibility with the new ball. Has been solid with the bat scoring 147 runs in eight games, and has picked up four wickets as well.
Hrishikesh Chekuri, talented top-order batsman with a calm head on his shoulders. Can deceive batsmen with his pace with the ball. Has racked up 100 runs in four games including a fifty and has picked up three victims as well.
Hassan Ashfaq, a decent top order batsman, already has a ton to his name in club cricket. Scored 113 runs in seven innings and has picked up three wickets.
United Csalad have impressed on debut with wins against the top two in the standings and possess impressive firepower with both bat and ball. Runners-up last season, COB have improved and beat UCB twice in the group stages. This eliminator could go either way and a preference would go to the side batting first and setting a 105+ target.
Last time they met: ECS21.497 | COB 130(9.5) def UCB 126 (1 Jul 2021)
Match Prediction: Cobra CC seem to have the wood over UCB and will start favourites for this game.
