XFT Vs QE Dream11 Team Overview, Match Centre And Probable Playing 5: A rejuvenated Qingdao outfit strives to fulfil its designs of a spot in the echelons of the points tally
After losing their opening game of the second round of the CBA 2019-20, Qingdao were quick to head back to the drawing board and chalk out their gameplan for the remainder of the season. They knew it needed to address the issues which were attributed to their defeats if they were to have a chance of become an untenable side.
And the side has won hearts with performances to write home about with the side covering itself in glory after that defeat. With two defeats on the bounce, the team has managed to arrest its harrowing form and coax its way a staunch stature, one much earned for this season.
Where they are on a winning spree, Xinjiang on the other hand saw their two game winning spin be cured the last time around. The side was putdown by Beijing in a 78-67 defeat, a performance which was an underwhelming showing from one of the outright favourites for the title.
While the Tigers won’t be massively overwhelmed or fazed by their defeat the last time around, the side knows another stern test awaits it today. And with their attacking plight exploited the last time around, the team has developed a chink, one it needs to paper over at the earliest plausible.
This will be a humdinger of a contest between two luscious teams, a game we see just about swinging Tigers’ way but the slightest of margins given their well versed defensive slot.

XFT Vs QE Dream11 Picks
With 14 points and 7 assists the last time around, Lingxu Zeng from Xinjiang once again saw his side erupt into unbridled celebrations. His performances this season have been a bedlam, showings which have seen him ensure the side’s attacking gameplan has been carried out with pinch perfection.
The architects of their side’s win the last time around, this shooting guard partnership from Qingdao is a formidable and daunting one. We begin with Chengu Zhang who dropped a behemoth 22 point showing to his name the last time around, a showing which saw him dwell into his repertoire of alleyoops, crossovers and reverse scoops.
He finds company in Dapeng Zhao who delivered 15 points for the team, a performance whose stature grew owing to the manner in which he cajoled his way the points from the deep.
Although his number in neither ambit were staggering, his all-round display meant Yinchuan Shao made for pristine value on the day. Not only does he help fill our yearning for the cheap pick but at a mere 5 credits, his 7 points, 4 assists and 6 rebounds hold gargantuan value.
The Tigers on the other hand will see us repose faith in the services of Shirelijian Muxtar after he managed to send down 8 points from the deep for the side.
Despite being part of the losing side the last time around, Chandong Yu didn’t let the way the game transpire effect his performance in the lightest. He was his imperious best, regaling the side in a wondrous soiree with his 16 points and 9 attacking rebounds.
Qingdao will on the other hand see us indulge in the services of the enterprising Tailong Zhao after the player was responsible for the 14 points for his team the last time around.
With a third double-double in succession, Zhou Qi is slowly starting to take on designs as one of the contenders for this season’s player of the year. His 17-14 double-double was a ravishing one, a performance which alluded towards the quirky and radiant brand of basketball he’s added to his side to spur this soiree.
His all-round and dependable skill set sees Qi captain our side while Yu is the vice-captain.
