HUN Playing 11 (likely)
The Romania team have lost all their 2 league matches and is expected to make a strong comeback in this game. Their batting performances have been disppointing and bowlers have been average. In both the matches, the team gave away a good amount of runs and could not chase down the target.
The opener of Romania team has been the best performer in the national cricket circuit due to his prowess of hitting big sixes and wicket-taking abilties. He was the best batter in the ECS T10 2021 season and performed pretty well in the Continental Cup as well. In this tournament, he started off quietly but can certainly be the differential pick for this fixture.
The top-order batsman looked confident in the first match of the tournament, where he provided lusty blows to counter the batsman, but was soon dismissed by a well-bowled yorker. But, he can be trusted once again due to his terrific track record in the Portugal T10 circuit and can win the games on his own due to his ball-striking capabilities.
Captain: Ramesh Satheesan
Wicketkeeper: Satwik Nadigotla
Possible Top Four: Taranjeet Singh, Gohar Manan, Satwik Nadigotla, Ramesh Satheesan
Possible Opening Bowlers: Vasu Saini, Rajesh Kumar
Spin Bowlers: Pavel Florin, Taranjeet Singh, Ramesh Satheesan
