Chance of Winning



Our Prediction

Kopavogur Puffins are favourites to win

Kopavogur Puffins vs Reykjavik Vikings, ECS T10 League, Iceland

Having already met in the opening game of the tournament, Kopavogur Puffins and Reykjavik Vikings close the first day of action as well. Their second meeting at the Vidistadatun Ground, Hafnarfjodur, on August 1, starts at 17:00 local time.

The Puffins are playing their second consecutive game, having met Hafnarfjodur immediately before this game. Dashun Bandara leads the batting and bowling, but they will be up against one of their leading batsmen of the season – Chamley Fernando having switched to the Vikings.

The Vikings – who had a game off last time out, but started with the Puffins-Hammers double-header – have the other key Bandara all-rounder, Lakmal, leading the way for them.

KPG Team News

His form when these teams last met highlighted Dushan Bandara’s importance to this team. Chamley Fernando is their second highest run-scorer this morning, but he is playing for Reykjavik.

KPG Key Players

  • Dushan Bandara: Came into this tournament on the back of an excellent one-day performance against the Vikings and is the Puffins’ key all-rounder.
  • Leslie Dcunha: A useful run-scorer in one-day cricket who can still make an impact at the top of the order.
  • Abhishek Chauhan: Consistent wickets means the captain has contributed throughout the season, albeit less spectacularly than Bandara.

Final Verdict

Kopavogur Puffins to beat Reykjavik Vikings

KPG vs RKJ Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket-keeper(s)

    Chamley Brendon Fernando is the top-priced wicket-keeper but then he has showcased his best form for both teams so far this season. At nine credits, he is good value.

  • Batsmen

    Leslie Dcunha had runs for the Puffins going into this tournament, while Max Sandaru is an option for the Vikings up the order. Of the three nine-credit batsmen, those are the two who stand out most on pre-tournament expectations. At the other end of the pricing scale, Bala Kamallakharan is just eight credits.

  • All-rounder(s)

    Dushan Bandara is the key all-rounder and his ten-credit cost reflects that, while Lakmal Bandara is nine credits, which is excellent value considering he leads the Vikings’ batting and bowling this season. Vikings’ captain Sadun Lankathilaka is a key bowler, while Derick Deonarain is a top-order batsman and all four are well worth selecting.

  • Bowlers

    Sampath Nagarajan and Prabhath Weerasooriya are both nine credits and have both been in decent wicket-taking form this season. Abhishek Chauhan, the Puffins captain, is another key wicket-taking bowler and he comes in at 8.5 credits.

  • Captain/vice-captain

    Dushan Bandara leads Kopavogur Puffins’ batting and bowling and Lakmal Bandara leads the Reykjavik Vikings’ charts in both categories. Either would be a good pick, but Bandara has starred in this fixture recently too.

KPG vs RKJ Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Leslie Dcunha, Max Sandaru, Bala Kamallakharan

  • All Rounder:Dushan Bandara (c), Lakmal Bandara (vc), Sadun Lankathilaka, Derick Deonarain

  • Wicket Keeper:Chamley Fernando

  • Bowler:Sampath Nagarajan, Abhishek Chauhan, Prabhath Weerasooriya
