The reigning champions Indo-Bulgarian CC have been utterly sensational over the week with just one loss in eight outings so far. Their opponents, Indian Tuskers have only won a couple of games and haven't done well against the higher-ranked opponents on the points table.
Both league fixtures between the two sides finished in an Indo-Bulgarian CC win with the Tuskers not able to withstand the former's batting might.
However, we could see a much more competitive fixture with the raised stakes this time round. With all to play for in this game, we should be in for a cracking encounter in Sofia.

Another high-scoring game beckons in the ECS T10 Bulgaria League with there being not much help on offer for the bowlers. Although the odd ball has kept low, the batsmen have been able to play their natural game from the outset.
They will have to be careful against the pacers towards the back end of the innings with slower balls being quite common in this tournament. Both teams would love to bat first with 100 being a bare minimum at this venue.
