The Czech T10 Super Series is proving to be an entertaining affair despite being a little lowscoring. The Velvary Cricket Ground has been a difficult one to clear and hence we haven’t seen a lot of big hits, nevertheless, there is decent scope for that to happen in the coming games.
Group 2 saw some fine games played out at the Velvary Cricket Ground yesterday, with Prague Spartan Vanguards taking full command of the top position. Both clubs from Vinohrady, the Rossos and Blancos, didn’t have the best of days though.
The Blancos had their first game cancelled due to rain and they should consider themselves unlucky to not get a good shot at the Prague Club Knights. They lost their second game by a big margin to the group favorites in Vanguards, which puts them under severe pressure going into this game.
The Rossos on the other hand, started their campaign on a positive note. They registered a 10-run win against the Knights and played out a thriller against Vanguards, which they lost by just five runs. If they win this fixture, they will steer clear from the Blancos and Knights, given Vanguards defeat the Knights in the second game.
The Rossos have a better batting lineup, which stood up well against Vanguards the other day. This advantage could benefit them in this fixture and perhaps if they get a shot at redemption against the Vanguards in the group knockout, you never know what could happen.
Predicted Playing XIs

Stats to remember
1. Ritik Tomar chipped in with a brilliant 15-ball 29 in the game against the Knights and scored another 29 runs off 18 balls against Vanguards.
2. In the group, Rossos have scored most aggregate team runs thus far (155 runs) whilst Vanguards are just two runs behind them with (153 runs).
The Rossos are in good shape with the bat and ball, definitely better than their opponents for the day. This could give them an edge over the Blancos and we’re expecting them to emerge victorious.
We would bet on the Vinohrady Rossos to register a win in this fixture. They have solid batting depth to go with a decent bowling attack.
