Match 17 of the ECS T10 Bologna League will see Baracca Prato taking on Pianoro at the Oval Rastignano on Friday.
Both Baracca Prato and Pianoro have been inconsistent in the tournament. Pianoro have flirted with consistency on a few occasions, but have only two wins to show for their efforts. However, they have a strong outfit led by Waleed Rana, who features among the top run-scorers and wicket-takers in the ECS T10 Bologna. Pianoro, who have a decent bowling attack, will be eyeing a win in Friday's fixture.
Baracca Prato, on the other hand, are a strong team, with Ghulam Dastgeer topping the run-scoring charts with 193 runs to his name. They might just be the favorites for tomorrow's ECS T10 Bologna game. The reverse fixture saw Pianoro lose, but with it being an important encounter, both teams should give their best in what promises to be a riveting contest to kickstart the day in the ECS T10 Bologna.

Match: Pianoro vs Baracca Prato, Match 17
Date & Time: 26th March, 2021, 1:30 PM IST
Venue: Oval Rastignano, Bologna
The pitch at the Oval Rastignano is a good one to bat on, with the ball coming on quite nicely onto the bat. There is some extra bounce and swing on offer for the bowlers, who have generally looked to hit the hard lengths throughout the ECS T10 Bologna, keeping the batsmen on their toes. However, the dimensions of the ground should play into the batters' hands, making for an even contest between the bat and ball. Both teams will look to chase upon winning the toss, with 100 being a bare minimum at the venue.
