Bohemian CC’s tough battle against the Prague CC Kings!
Prague CC Kings to win!
In the 4th game of the Czech Republic T10 Super Series, 2020 the Bohemain Cricket Club would be battling it out in the middle with the Prague Cricket Club Kings. The Kings are one of the best sides in the domestic circuit and have highly experienced players in their ranks which will add to their advantage. The lack of experienced players for the Bohemain Cricket Club is a cause of concern for their side. They will need their young players to rise up to the challenge in this game.
The Bohemian Cricket Club will look to make the best use of the promising talent they have in the squad. Some of their players have done well in the recent tournaments which will add to their confidence. The Prague Cricket Club, on the other hand, would look to play to its potential. The format of the game is uncertain and hence the Kings despite being a stronger side cannot take things lightly.
Javed Iqbal would have to inspire the confidence in his side as they are up against a very strong opponent in this game. They don’t have the best of records against the Kings and Iqbal would like his team to put these behind. They need to approach the game aggressively to come out as winners in this contest.
Muhammad Zubair and Saqlain Saqib Mukhtar have a lot of experience behind their back and the side will need a good start from them. Zahid Mahmood is a dependable batsman at No. 3 but beyond that, the side lacks experience. Ravindra Singh Bisht and Iqbal will have to free their arms in the final overs for the side to do well with the bat.
Moving over to their bowling, the side has a good attack with Waheed ur Rehman and Ali Waqar starting with the new ball. Both of them are known to be wicket-takers and shall need to provide the side with a good start. Arif Javed and Waseem Sardar Khan will need to play the supporting act well to prevent their opponents from putting up a big score on the board.

Arun Ashokan’s side looks strong going into this game. They have played well as a unit over the last few tournaments and it was good to see the side playing well as a unit. They have a good record against the Bohemian CC but this is a different ball game and Ashokan would be looking forward to seeing positive cricket from his side.
In Hilal Ahmad and Sudhir Gladson, the side has a very strong opening combination and the team would be looking at them to provide a good start to the side. Sudesh Roy Dias Wickramasekara, Martin Glew, and Sharan Sundareswaran who shall follow in the batting are also known to have good hitting ability which is much needed in this format of the game.
As far as their bowling is concerned, Ramesh Guruswamy and Sameera Maduranga shall be looking to pick early wickets for the side and they are proven performers in the short format of the game. Sivagnanam Gnanatheeswaran, Prakash Sadasivan, and Manish Sahijwani complete a good bowling attack for the side.

There are predictions for overcast skies and light rains on June 13 at Prague. Bowlers would enjoy the weather as this will allow them to extract swing from the surface. Batting would be slightly challenging and batsmen would need to play to the merit of the ball. A score of 100 runs would be a fighting total on this surface.
The smaller size of the venue does make it a good wicket to bat on. There is always some assistance for the bowlers at the Vinor Cricket Ground, Prague which balances it out well between the batsmen and the bowlers. This isn’t the best track for spinners as they have struggled to do well in the past.
It will be the 4th game of the day and the conditions are likely to be best for batting after all the games have been played. The side batting first always has the advantage in this format and hence the skipper is likely to opt for batting first after winning the toss.
The Bohemian Cricket Club has a young side and they would be tested well in this game against a stronger opponent. The side will need its young players to deliver the goods if they are to do well in the game. The Prague CC Kings on the other hand are coming into this game with a formidable line-up and need to play to their potential to win this one. At the start of the game, the Kings would be the favorites to win here.
Prague CC Kings to win!
