Indo-Bulgarian CC have been the standout team in this competition with just one loss in nine outings. Their quality in all three departments was on show in their crushing victory against Indian Tuskers in the semi-final.
However, they face a much tougher test against MU Dons, who got past a formidable Medical University Sofia side courtesy a Sulaiman Ali special.
Despite both sides being pretty well-matched on paper, one would fancy an Indo-Bulgarian CC win, especially with the reigning champions beating MU Dons in both of their league games.
With all to play for in this much-awaited final, both teams would not want to give the other an inch in what should be a high-scoring affair.

A high-scoring final awaits us in Sofia with the batsmen ruling the roost in this tournament. While the pacers have fared better over the last few games, the batsmen should feel at ease in the middle with no variable bounce on offer.
With the dimensions of the ground also playing into the batsmen's hands, we should be in for a few fireworks in this game. 100 represents a par score at this venue with both sides looking to bat first on winning the toss.
