The Kostanay team lost quite a lot of players in the offseason. Konstantin Dvirny, Dmitry Klimov, Daniil Seleznev, Mikhail Shvab, Farid Karimullin, Ruslan Chernyavsky, Stanislav Rovovoy, Konstantin Neff, Dmitry Luchko and Vasily Belozor have not continued their careers in the Kostanay team since last season. That is, quite a few key players have left the team. In terms of the roster, «Tobol» remains true to its principles this season, and again plays without the help of imports. From last season, there are several key players left — Anton Bykov, Shaim Kuanov, Maxim Voeikov and Pavel Ilyin, as well as Rustam Valiev, Mikhail Mudragela and Anuar Simbaev. All the newcomers to the team, of course, were Kazakhstanis and have spent their careers in local teams. The team was joined by players from the “Almaty Legion” — Nikita Timofeev, Daniel Albrant and Vadim Korzhov, as well as Gleb Zhukov from “Kaspiy” and Askar Akhmetzhanov from “Barsy Atyrau”. In addition, the young guard Maksim Zhukov will make his debut for the team.
There have been no changes at all in the coaching staff of Kostanay. The head of «Tobol» is still Timur Sultanov , and Sergey Ratnikov helps him.
Before this series, both teams played two games each and achieved 100% of the result, leading the standings. But “Astana” quite confidently dealt with “Barsy Atyrau” in an away game, and “Tobol” barely coped with “Aktobe” at home. Thanks to the score difference, the capital team occupies a higher position.
Leaders of the rivals:
Shaim Kuanov helped his team a lot in both victories over “Aktobe”, on average gaining 26.5 points, 9 rebounds and 8 assists per game. Pavel Ilyin was also very effective in the last matches of the team. The leader of the Kostanay team, Anton Bykov, is very close to a double-double on average per game. Rustam Valiev and Nikita Timofeevs started in both past games, while Askar Akhmetzhan and Maxim Voeikov spend on average about twenty minutes on the court.
History of games:
Over the entire history, teams have held more than 40 games between themselves. Last season, “Astana” received a technical defeat in one match with the Kostanay team, in all other games our guys outplayed their counterparts.
- Pavel Ilyin and Maxim Voeikov are former players of “Astana”.
