Pick

Reason

Kensington

Nitro

Hyattsville

Kensington

This can go either way. Both teams have had losses early in the season and are both hungry for success. It does appear that Kensington is finally coming together and putting in some strong performances. Kensington will take a close game.

Virginia

AFCA

Galway Park

Virginia

Virginia played really good cricket last week and on their day, could’ve walked away with a win. They would have their chance against AFCA who have also hit some form after defeating Kensington last week.   Another interesting game but Virginia has more firepower lower down the order and should take this one.

Boyds

Zolon

Soccerplex

Zolon

Game of the week! Boyds is a very talented side. Their big name players are stepping up and scoring runs and they are also ably supported by others in the team. Boyds are also very strong at home and defeated a strong Tigers side last week. However, this is my upset of the week and I think Zolon has a stronger batting line up and should score more runs on a small ground. Close game but Zolon will win!

Vikings

Cosmos

Hyattsville

Vikings

Vikings played some interesting cricket last week. They crossed the line against a depleted Virginia side but their frailties against quality bowling are not a secret to anyone. Cosmos has been playing some high quality cricket this year on the back of players like Ashwin. They’d need him to score runs this game and if Cosmos does manage to score 150+ against Vikings   they would stand a good chance of taking this one. Vikings players are finally hitting form though and Waleed is due for a big score. Vikings are the inform team and should be able to take this one.

Titans

Virginia

Veterans

Titans

This matchup is going to be intense! The Titan players seem particularly irked by some of the comments made about them. There are plenty of scores to settle from last year as well and that would make for an interesting match. . Interesting fact: no playing member of Virginia CC has made a comment about any Titan player or their team however, no Virginia player has ever shown displeasure or tried to stop such comments as well. I think Titans are way too charged up this time and have the side to back up any talk they might want to dish out to others. Titans to win on their superior batting.

Dulles

Tigers

Veterans

Dulles

This is a hard week to call games because of matchups like this one! A red hot dulles against a fiery Tigers side both coming off losses. This is the crunch time of the T20 season and a mistake here or there can cause significant damage. I think Dulles have a better chance of taking this one in the absence of a couple of Tiger players. Close game but Dulles to take it!

UMBC

Boyds

Woodmoor

Boyds

Boyds are back at what they do best. They just keep on winning! They are coming together real well and playing some good cricket. Shabir has been on fire for Boyds and amongst the wickets consistently. If Boyds can adjust to Woodmoor wicket after playing at Soccerplex and Veterans mostly, they should take this one on the back of more depth and versatility in their bowling attack.

Tigers

Dulles

Veterans

Dulles

Another day, another Tigers V Dulles game. Everything points towards Tigers making a strong comeback and giving Dulles a tough fight but I will back my instinct on this one. I think Dulles will complete a sweep of Tigers this weekend.

Bengals

Titans

Veterans

Titans

Titans will win this one. Bengals are a good side with some good talented players but Titans is one of the best sides this year and Bengals should look to learn from this one and take notes for any future encounters. Titans all the way!
