Cluj will be up against Baneasa in back-to-back ECS T10 Romania matches at the Moara Vlasiei Cricket Ground in Ilfov County on Wednesday.
Cluj got off to a flying start to their ECS T10 Romania campaign and are currently placed in second spot in the points table. Their batsmen managed to take complete advantage of the playing conditions on offer and posted healthy totals, which Cluj's bowlers defended in style to win their first two matches against last season's runners-up United. They will head into Tuesday's double-header high on confidence and will be looking forward to continuing their unbeaten run when they face an off-form Baneasa side.
Baneasa, on the other hand, will be extremely disappointed with their performances in the ECS T10 Romania so far this season. They have lost their first two matches against the ACCB and are currently placed at the bottom of the points table. While Baneasa's batsmen have done a pretty good job of racking up good totals on the board, their bowlers have failed to keep the opposition in check. The Abdul Shakoor-led side will be desperately looking to pick up wins from both games against Cluj and open their account in the ECS T10 Romania.
Both teams have some quality players in their squad and we can witness two thrilling ECS T10 Romania matches on Wednesday.

Matches: Cluj vs Baneasa, 9th & 10th matches, ECS T10 Romania
Date & Time: 14th July 2021, 11:30 AM & 01:30 PM IST
Venue: Moara Vlasiei Cricket Ground, Ilfov County.
The pitch at the Moara Vlasiei Cricket Ground has greatly favored the batsmen in the ECS T10 Romania thus far, with the batters able to hit the ball out of the park at will. Meanwhile, bowlers have struggled to control the leakage of runs on this ground with relatively shorter boundaries on offer. They will have to maintain tight lines and lengths to survive on this wicket. One must not hesitate to bat first and put up a big total on the board upon winning the toss as the majority of the games played at the venue have been won by the teams batting first.
