SVH vs DRX Dream11 : Dreux Cricket Club play their second match in the space of an hour as the French champions look to consolidate their position in Group A
Playing in a hectic and congested schedule in the European Cricket League, French side, Dreux Cricket Club’s perseverance and depth in squad will be tested on the international circuit for the first time today. Representing their country as the champions of the county’s cricket league, Dreux find themselves back in action for their second encounter against Svanholm Cricket Club today.
Beginning the much awaited league with their encounter against V.O.C Rotterdam, Dreux return to the field in the space of an hour to square off for their ensuing fixture against Denmark’s champions Svanholm. For Dreux, the schedule albeit a hectic one, it is one which offers them a massive opportunity to find themselves in with one foot inside the qualifiers slated to be held in the space of the next days.
Meanwhile for Svanholm, this encounter which will be their first in the league is a massive opportunity for the side to showcase the immense rise it has been on in the cricketing fraternity. A part of ICC’s Development Program for the European Region, Denmark have over the course of the last couple of months registered some stellar showings to repose the faith placed in them.
And with Svanholm packed with several of the country’s international star performers, the side come across as one of the firm favourites for the glistening trophy. Expect them to make things jittery from Dreux as they leave no stone unturned to begin their soiree in the league with two crucial points.
Despite Dreux having been better acclimatised with the conditions at hand and having a good know of the league having already indulged in an encounter, we are going to favour Svanholm for this one. This might just be a 10 over encounter but it’s still one which requires pristine work ethic and for Dreux recovering from a draining opening encounter might not be the easiest of tasks.
Paired with the immense pool of skilled players at their disposal, Svanholm Cricket Club should emerge from this encounter on the greener side of things.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
This might be a well used pitch with this being the third match to be played on it inside 4 hours but that is by no means going to deter the batsmen. The extremely small ground dimensions, format of the match and solid batting friendly conditions will see the batsmen love their time batting on this track.
Expect the pitch to only settle in even more nicely rather than wearing out and seeing batting become an extremely easy proposition over here. A big score is palpable with the side winning the toss choosing to bat first.

Dream 11 Picks
Wicket-Keepers for SVH vs DRX Dream11
Zahir Amir from Dreux Cricket Club has been picked up by us for this match solely due to the high role he occupies in the side’s batting order which will see him get a good amount of overs to come out and score runs in.
Batsmen for SVH vs DRX Dream11
We are picking up opener Shuaib Rashid from Svanholm for this encounter down to his knack of hitting some hefty blows in the early period of his inning. Although he’s not enjoyed the most fruitful of times out in the cricketing arena recently, the T10 format might be one which plays heavily in his favour, seeing him come out and get a small but quick little score for his side.
Number 3 bat, Zishan Shah is akin to Rashid and we are picking him up as well from the side. Elsewhere from Dreux we have gone in with the lone pick of Mohammad Nisar for this match.
All-Rounders for SVH vs DRX Dream11
With a 100 in his last outing and 10 wickets to go along with it in his previous five encounters, we have roped in Saud Munir into our playing 11 with massive expectations. He’s reverberated astute displays with both the bat and ball on a pertinent basis, emerging as one of the most crucial player for his side in recent time and was an undoubtable pick for us.
Accompanying him is middle-order bat Mads Henriksen from Svanholm with him having registered scores of 57 and 43 in his last two matches. With the top-order inconsistent at best for the side, he could come in pretty early in this match and get a bagful of runs in this one.
Muhammad Bhatti is opted as the only player from the French outfit by us for this fixture.
Bowling Order for SVH vs DRX Dream11
Our most heavily packed department, we have decided to imbed into our side the four bowlers with two coming in from either side. Svanholm are going to be represented by Jonas Henriksen with him having snared 6 wickets in his recent outings for the side with Eugene Moleon coming as well.
With today’s surface bound to offer some kind of purchase to the pacers with a 10 over match meaning that the ball is going to be as good as new across the full course of the match, we have Sher Afridi and Ahmad Nabi come in from Dreux.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Munir has been picked up to captain our side while Henriksen is our vice-captain for this one.
