VfB Gelsenkirchen, established only in 2018, is one of the inexperienced hard-ball cricket team. However, once a social community of immigrants, it has grown into a skilled team capable of springing a few surprises.
On the other hand, Bayer Uerdingen Boosters is a brand-new team that will compete at Germany's new national training centre in Krefeld. The Boosters are coming into this tournament on a big learning curve in this tournament.
In 2020, both Swapnil Varhade and Suliman Hugakhil batted strongly for VfB Gelsenkirchen. VfB Gelsenkirchen would be in safe shape if they can re-establish their rhythm, which would have been broken by the forced break brought about by the pandemic.
Though Gobinath Sribalashanmugan is expected to lead the charge with the bat, Ahalavan Pius will be expected to do the same with the ball in hand. Last season, Pius was the top wicket-taker for Bayer Uerdingen Boosters.
