The eighth match of this week's European Cricket Series (ECS) T10 Bulgaria 2022 will see VTU-MU Pleven (PLE) taking on Indo-Bulgarian CC (INB) at the Vassil Levski National Sports Academy in Sofia on Thursday.
VTU-MU Pleven didn't have the best of starts to their ECS campaign, losing both their games earlier in the week. They will look to return to ways, with the likes of Kadyan and Harikumar being key to their fortunes. However, they face a strong Indo-Bulgarian side who are filled with explosive firepower and experience. Led by Prakash Mishra, the Indo-Bulgarian will start as the clear favorites in what promises to be a cracking game in Sofia.

PLE vs INB, European Cricket Series (ECS) T10 2022, Match 8
Date and Time: 21st April 2022, 7:30 PM IST
Venue: Vassil Levski National Sports Academy, Sofia
The pitch in Sofia is a good one to bat despite there being a hint of inconsistent bounce. While there is some movement available for the pacers, they will look to take the pace off and stick to the defensive lines to get the most out of the surface. There isn't much turn available for the spinners, who will need to be spot on with their lines and lengths. Both teams will look to bat first upon winning the toss, with 100 being par at the venue.
Today’s PLE vs INB Dream11 match top picks
Nithin Sunil: Nithin Sunil didn't have the best outing against BSCU - MU Plovdiv, scoring just 16 and six in the two games. He is a decent batter who can bat deep into the innings and clear the boundary at will. With Sunil due for a big knock, he is the one to watch out for today.
Bakhtiar Tahiri: Bakhtiar Tahiri has been a mainstay in the Bulgarian cricket scene with his contributions with both the bat and ball being noteworthy. While his bowling has served his side well, Tahiri's real value lies on the batting front, making him a good addition to your PLE vs INB Dream11 fantasy team.
Chris Webster: Chris Webster is a household name in the Indo-Bulgarian side, often churning out useful contributions with the bat and ball. He has a lot of experience under his belt and given the conditions on offer, he is a must-have in your PLE vs INB Dream11 fantasy team.
Mohammad Arham: Mohammad Arham gave a good account of himself in the previous game, conceding less than a run-a-ball in his two overs. Although he hasn't picked up many wickets in his two ECS T10 Bulgaria games this season, his ability to vary pace and nail yorkers makes him a handy pick.
