Both teams have had contrasting fortunes so far in the tournament. While Barbarian CC has lost all its games at the time of writing, Indo-Bulgarian CC finds itself at the top of the points table with six points.
With the likes of Steve Jordaan and Hristo Lakov firing on all cylinders, it isn't going to be easy for the Barbarians.
With a loss in this fixture ultimately ruling them out for a playoff place, the Barbarians will look to put in a commendable performance, although that might not be easy against Indo-Bulgarian CC.
Either way, we should be in for a high-scoring game with two valuable points up for grabs in this fixture.

As for the bowlers, there isn't much help on offer with change of pace being their best option. 100 should be a competitive total on this surface with both teams likely to bat first on winning the toss.
