Bulgaria Team Preview
Bulgaria appeared in Continental Cup 2021 and this series was a disaster for them as they were not able to win a single game in that tournament and their current form is five successive losses.
Bakhtiar Tahiri and Hristo Lakov have played 12 and 14 matches for Bulgaria and they are without doubt the most experienced batsmen on the team. Hristo Lakov is the highest run-getter for the team also as he scored 334 runs overall for the team with an average of over 33. He has 3 half-centuries also in his name. Bakhtiar Tahiri too has decent stats while playing for the Bulgaria team. He has made 317 runs with 66 being his highest total. These two batsmen certainly fill up the spot of top batsmen for the Bulgaria Team.
Prakash Mishra who has played 18 matches for Bulgaria is the highest wicket-taker for the team. He has taken 18 wickets in the same number of matches and his best bowling figures are 3 for 12 runs. Hristo Lakov is a top allrounder who has taken 12 wickets for the team also.
Switzerland Team Preview
Switzerland is relatively new to the Cricket world and they do have not much experience of playing cricket at the international level. Still, there are many players in the Switzerland team who have done very well for the team in domestic cricket. Faheem Nazir has played most domestic matches for Switzerland and in the 10 matches he has played, he has scored 630 runs with an impressive average of 63.
Osama Mahmood is the second-best batsman for Switzerland in terms of runs. He has scored 299 runs in the 6 domestic matches that he has played.
Faheem Nazir can create difficulties for the opposition with his bowling also because he has grabbed 12 wickets in domestic cricket. Noorkhan Ahmadi is also a great bowler in domestic cricket and it will be the appropriate time for him to show his potential.
