The Indo-Bulgarian CC will take on BSCU-MU Plovdiv in back-to-back ECS T10 Bulgaria matches at the Vassil Levski National Sports Academy in Sofia on Thursday.
Indo-Bulgarian CC have had a great start to their ECS T10 Bulgaria campaign. They have won all of their first four matches and currently find themselves at the top of the standings. The Indo-Bulgarian CC beat VTU-MU Pleven by 35 runs in their last outing and will undoubtedly start as favorites when they lock horns with BSCU-MU Plovdiv.
Speaking of BSCU-MU Plovdiv, they are currently third in the ECS T10 Bulgaria points table, having won just one of their four matches so far. While they have lost twice, one of their games was abandoned due to rain. BSCU-MU Plovdiv will head into Thursday's double-header on the back of a six-wicket loss to Academic-MU Sofia. They will be desperate to return to winning ways and get their ECS T10 Bulgaria campaign back on track.

Matches: Indo-Bulgarian CC vs BSCU-MU Plovdiv, 13th and 14th matches, ECS T10 Bulgaria

Date and Time: 8th July, 2021, 11:30 AM and 1:30 PM IST
Although the pitch at the Vassil Levski National Sports Academy in Sofia is generally a good one to bat on, low-scoring games have been pretty common in the ECS T10 Bulgaria so far. Bowlers have immensely enjoyed the conditions on this ground, with wickets in hand being key for the batting team. More of the same is expected during Thursday's ECS T10 double-header between the Indo-Bulgarian CC and BSCU-MU Plovdiv.
