The Capelle T10 League 2020 has reached its decisive phase, with the champions to be crowned today. All the four teams have played five encounters each on the first two days, with their final group stage matches scheduled for today.
The day's proceedings will start with the last two league stage matches. They will be followed by the third-place playoff match and the all-important final to decide the championship winners.
Sparta Cricket 1888 are sitting atop the points table of the Capelle T10 League 2020 with 8 points to their name. They have won four of the five matches they have played and are the first team to have qualified for the finals of the tournament.
Excelsior 20 occupies the second spot on the points table with 6 points in their kitty. A win in their last league match against SV Kampong Cricket would assure them of a spot in the final, although they could still make it through on net run rate even if they lose the encounter.
SV Kampong Cricket, with 4 points, is placed third in the points table of the Capelle T10 League 2020. They would have to register an emphatic victory in their last league match against Excelsior 20 to leapfrog them on net run rate and qualify for the finals.
Voorburg Cricket Club is the only team that is out of contention for a place in the title-deciding clash. They are placed last on the points table with 2 points to their credit and would be one of the teams contesting the third-place playoff match.
