In the 20th game of the Czech Republic T10 Super Series, 2020 which will be the fourth and last one for the day the Prague Barbarians Vandals would be taking on the Budejovice Barracudas CC. The Prague Barbarians Vandals are one of the powerhouse of domestic cricket and boast of having some of the biggest names in the country. Budejovice Barracudas CC on the other hand is a young side and it will be a big challenge for them.
The problem for the Budejovice Barracudas CC is the lack of depth in their bowling as they have few bowlers who have played competitive cricket in the past and against a strong side like Vandals this will be a huge test. The Vandals wouldn’t like to take on their opponents lightly though as one bad over can turn the course of the match in this format.

Batting wise the side has great resources on its side starting with Sabawoon Davizi who can hit the ball hard. Pradeep Gangappa is also a good hitter of the ball and down the order the side has good players in M Sai Vandrasi, Honey Gori Birendra Kumar and Pradeep Balakrishnan who will look to exploit the weakness that Barracudas have with their bowling.

Anbu Poosakkannu has a big task at hand as his side takes one of the strongest teams in the tournament.

The side needs to play aggressive cricket to win against the Vandals.

There are predictions for overcast skies over Prague on June 27. The heavy conditions would make it a tough wicket for the batsmen who will have to be watchful playing their strokes. The odd ball skids on and this is something that will aid the bowlers. A score of around 90 runs would be a fighting total on this surface.
Vinor Cricket Ground, Prague is a small park with thick grass cover. Batsmen who play the long ball have done well here as the grass cover doesn’t allow too many boundaries. Fast bowlers have always enjoyed bowling on this surface where they get good bounce and movement with the ball. It is a tough venue for the spinners given the size of the ground.
Toss: To Bat
Win the toss and bat first is usually the mantra in T10 cricket as it offers advantage to the side batting first. We hope to see something similar in this game as well. The side that wins the toss would have little hesitation in batting first and aim at putting the opposition out of the game.
It will be a game between two sides that are on opposite ends of the spectrum. The Budejovice Barracudas CC is a new outfit and hasn’t played too much of competitive cricket. This is something that would be difficult for them to overcome. The Prague Barbarians Vandals on the other hand is an experienced team that boasts of several all-rounders with years of experience in the squad. This will make them the outright favorites to win this game.
