In the third match of the ECS T10 Bologna 2021 tournament, Bologna CC will take on Pianoro CC at the Oval Rastignano on Monday.
Bologna CC are coming into the ECS tournament with high hopes, given their impressive roster. They have one of the best batting units in the competition, with the likes of Razzak and Kumar expected to play key roles in their ECS campaign.
Meanwhile, their opponents, Pianoro, also have a decent team in place, but inexperience could be their undoing. Like Bologna, Pianoro also have a talented batting unit, with Suresh likely to be one to watch out for with the bat.
Although 'hosts' Bologna CC have the upper hand going into this ECS game, Pianoro could give them a good run for their money. Nevertheless, a cracking game of cricket beckons at the Oval Rastignano on Monday.

A decent batting track beckons at the Oval Rastignano. The bowlers could get some movement off the surface.
The batsmen should look out for the odd ball keeping low, though, which might make for an even ECS contest in Bologna. Both teams will look to bat first on winning the toss, with 100 likely to be a bare minimum total at this venue.
