After two whirlwind league matches on Sunday, we have a repeat of Match 1 of the ECN Czech T10 Super Series Week 2 between the Vinohrady Biancos and the Prague CC Knights.
Both teams were under the pump at the end of the first day, with a NR and a loss each to their names. However, gritty performances against the Vinohrady Rossos and the Prague Spartans Vanguards respectively have earned them the right to fight for a place in the final.
The corresponding fixture in the league phase was abandoned due to inclement weather, which adds intrigue to the already exciting match-up.

The pitch has slowed down considerably, with the last two league games yielding only 245 runs in nearly 40 overs. With extra bounce on offer, both pacers and spinners should come in to play, although the relatively smaller boundaries square of the wicket might go against them. Batting first would be the ideal option for both sides, with this being a must-win game.
