The 15th match of the ICC Men's T20 World Cup Europe Qualifiers will see Estonia (EST) take on the Czech Republic (CZR) at the Tikkurila Cricket Ground in Vantaa on Thursday, July 28.
Both Estonia and Czech Republic are winless after two attempts and will be desperate to open their accounts. The Czechs have a strong roster with a good blend of youth and experience. The Estonians, meanwhile, have given a good account of themselves despite coming up short in crunch moments. Although both teams look evenly matched on paper, the Czech Republic will hold the edge going into this much-awaited clash.

Both teams will look to bat first upon winning the toss, with 150 being a good total at the venue.
Today's EST vs CZR Dream11 match top picks
Stuart Hook: Stuart Hook has been brilliant in the middle order, scoring valuable runs at times of need. He is a good player of pace and can more than hold his own against the spinners. Given his recent form and ability, he should be a good addition to your EST vs CZR Dream11 fantasy team.
Sabawoon Davizi: Sabawoon Davizi is an exciting batter who has the ability to tee off from ball one. He is known for his explosive batting ability and can also chip in with the ball. Although his form has not been great, Davizi's potential should make him one to watch out for in this game.
Ali Masood: Ali Masood has been brilliant at the top of the order for Estonia, scoring over 100 runs in two matches. While he has gotten off to quick starts in each of the games, he is also capable of holding one end in the middle overs. With Masood also adding value with the ball, he is a must-have in your EST vs CZE Dream11 fantasy team.
Sameera Maduranga: Sameera Maduranga has been the Czech Republic's best bowler in a rather disappointing campaign so far. He has the ability to stifle batters with his pace and accuracy, holding him in good stead. With Maduranga in decent form heading into the game, he could be backed to pick up a wicket or two today.
