Match Preview

Introduction

The group stage of the Taipei T10 League continues and it will be the ICCT Smashers taking on the FCC Formosans. Both these teams played very well in their opening match of the tournament and even though the ICCT Smashers suffered a defeat, they did not embarrass themselves like some fo the other teams.

It appears as of this group is the tougher one of the two and so winning this match is going to be pretty important. This will be the last group match for the FCC Formosans while the ICCT Smashers will have one more match to play after this. 

ICCT United

Rajesh Mehta and Devang Shah played pretty well for the ICCT Smashers but could not get the required momentum in the inning. They ended up scoring 70 against the PCCT Smashers, a score that can be described as barely par. 

We have seen from scores in the past couple of matches that something close to 75 or 80 is required by the team batting first to be confident of a win. Vinit Chattrani and Sandeep patil are two of the other batsmen to watch out for.

Dirvesh Jain and Devang Shah were the best bowlers in the previous match. AN improved show from the opening bowlers will be needed for ICCT United to get the better of the FCC Formosans.

FCC Formosans

The FCC Formosans absolutely trounced the Chiayi Swinger in their opening match. They kept the Swingers to 66 and then chased the total down without taking any risks. Pintu Kumar was the pick of the bowlers but almost everyone had a good day with the ball.

The FCC Formosans will be hoping to come up with a similar kind of batting performance in this match as well. 

Anthonu Liu and Aryadeep Mrinal were the two best batsmen from the FCC Formosans in the opening match and they are likely to be given the maximum chance to score once more. We can see a promotion for Aryadeep Mrinal in this match after he showed his big-hitting capabilities in the previous encounter.

The FCC Formosans seem to have more depth in their batting and the bowling is pretty good as well. It is easy to see why they would be regarded as the favorites at this stage of the tournament.

Pitch and Conditions

The conditions of the tournament are geared towards run-scoring and this is why we believe the totals are only going to get higher as the tournament goes on. The artificial turf is not going to change at all and the outfield will remain quick.

The size of the boundaries is pretty small so a lot of sixes can be hit.

The weather forecast for match day is very good and we should not see any interruptions.

Our Prediction

The bookmakers are offering exactly the same odds for both the sides in this match. This coud be because there is insufficient information about the teams playing as well as a small sample size to choose from.

On the basis of the performances in the previous match, we believe the FCC Formosans have a very good chance of winning.

Bet on the FCC Formosans to win at odds of 1.85 on Betway (at the time of writing)
