JJB vs CLJ Dream11 : Bottom of Group A, Cluj Cricket Club clash heads against JCC Brescia in the first qualifier today
Owing to the format of the ongoing European Cricket League, both JCC Brescia and Cluj Cricket Club have been given an opportunity to revive their campaign. Facing off against each other in the first qualifier of the day, for the two sides, this match comes across as a chance to stem a horrid run of successive defeats.
For Romanian based outfit, Cluj Cricket Club, this edition of the showpiece league has been a harrowing experience. The side have ended up floundering both the batting and bowling department with the unit fully unravelling against Dreux Cricket Club in a defeat which saw them being obliterated by 95 run. It was a flabbergasting performance by the side, one which left them in the dearth of Group A, taking their total to 3 defeats from three matches.
And taking on a JCC Brescia side who won three out of three matches, the predicament doesn’t seem to be improving any time soon for the Romanian side. They are up against a clearly superior outfit, a side who have outshone them in every department of the game across the first two days of the group stage encounters.
Expect this match to be as one sided as they get with the scoreline heavily favouring JCC Brescia at the end of it all. We just don’t see Cluj having anything in them to trouble the Italian champions, a side who have been a testament to the level of cricket being played in their country at the moment.
Brescia win this one as comfortably as possible.
