Indo-Bulgarian CC haven't done their reputation any harm with some clinical performances in the tournament so far. Although they did lose a game to Medical University Sofia, Indo-Bulgarian CC have been spotless with the willow.
On the other hand, it has been a sorry campaign for the Barbarians, who are win-less after five games.
Both teams did face off earlier in the tournament with Indo-Bulgarian CC beating the bottom-placed side by a whopping 67-run margin. While the reigning Bulgarian champions will eye an encore, they will be wary of a wounded Barbarian side who have nothing to lose ahead of this contest.

Match: Indo-Bulgarian CC vs Barbarian CC
Date: 10th September 2020, at 7:30 PM IST
Venue: National Sports Academy Vasil Levski, Sofia
The pitch at the National Sports Academy looks a batting paradise with scores in excess of 100 being notched up at an alarming rate. The bowlers haven't found much success although changes of pace seem to be preferred option towards the end of the innings.
With the dimensions of the ground helping their cause, the batsmen will look to go big from ball one as both sides would look to bat first on this batting-friendly track.
