The Italy team has been brilliant in the last 3 matches, and would look to keep the same momentum and form in this fixture. They have produced credible performances in both departments and are likely to beat the struggling Czech Republic team. The CZR team need to take special care to bat as deep as they can to accumulate runs, in the area, which they have been lacking in the last few games.
The Italy team picked up the momentum after beating the best side in the tournament, England XI. In the last league match, they were terrific with the ball to dismiss opposition to 48 runs. The key performers with the ball was Amir Sharif and Jaspreet Singh. While, the team chased down the score in 6 overs, and Nisar, Amir, and Baljit were sensible enough in their performances.
The experienced batsman has been a consistent performer in the T10 circuit, and was impressive in the ECS T10 Brescia as well. In this tournament, Baljit Singh has led from the front and along with his six hitting abilities, he has stabilized the team as well. In 7 matches of this tournament, Baljit has scored 128 runs at an average of 25.60.
The best pick for this match has been terrific for the Italy team, and is one of the biggest reasons of the team going into the playoffs. Amir has picked the most wickets in the tournament (most among all groups). He has scored 114 runs at an average of 16.28 and has 15 wickets to his name at a fantastic average of 7.13.

The Czech Republic team could not win their last 3 league matches, and had only 3 victories in 7 league matches. In the last league match, Sabawoon Davizi was a fine contributor for the team to post a modest target of 74, which is way below par total.

The explosive batsman finally came back to form in the last league match, which helped them to put a respectable total on the board. In 8 matches, Davizi scored 128 runs at an average of 16. He has a very good track record of delivering in both departments in the T10 format and would look to keep contributing in an efficient manner.
The all rounder will look to keep up his fine form in the tournament and perform in the most crucial match of the tournament. He has displayed the ability to perform well in both departments, and can be a good pick for your fantasy team. Sudesh has scored 152 runs and has scalped 6 wickets in the tournament, which depicts his all round brilliance.
