Fantasy Cricket Match Predictions: ECS Bulgaria T10 2020 - MU Dons vs Indo-Bulgarian CC - Match 5
The 5th match of the European Cricket Series Bulgaria T10 2020 will be played between MU Dons and Indo-Bulgarian CC at The National Sports Academy Vasil Levski in Sofia.
MU Dons will bank on Sulaiman Ali to do most of the damage with the bat on the opening day of European Cricket Series Bulgaria. Ali can be a tentative starter but once he finds his groove, he is hard to stop. MU Dons will expect him to be this version of himself in their first match.
While Sulaiman Ali is likely to lead the charge with the ball, the onus of doing the same with the ball in hand will be on the shoulders of Rohan Patel.
All-rounders Kiran Dasan and Saim Hussain form the backbone of the side, and even if one of them clicks, it will be very difficult to stop MU Dons.
Prakash Mishra and Rohit Dhiman are the top batters for Indo-Bulgarian CC with 376 and 363 runs respectively from 16 matches each.
Mishra has the best of 73 and has struck four half-centuries. He possesses an average of 30 and a strike rate of 214.86. Dhiman has struck three half-centuries at an average of 36.30 and a strike rate of 220.
Hristo Lakov is Indo-Bulgarian CC's main bowler and has represented Bulgaria in 3 T20 matches, bowling at an economy of 6 RPO. Lakov can also bat and has an average upwards of 20.
Let's have a look at the squads of both teams:
MU Dons - Zain Abidi, Kiran Dasan, Umar Naveed, Zain Asif, Saim Hussain, Karthik Sreekumar, Sulaiman Ali, Sunny Talpur, Asad Ali Rehemtulla, Rohan Patel, Arif Khan, Thiekshan Suresh, Huzaifah Babur and Borislav Metodi
