It's a Prague derby in the final of the ECN Czech T10 Super Series Week 2 as the Knights battle the Spartans Vanguards at the Velvary Cricket Ground.
The Spartans Vanguards have been the team to beat, and finished atop the points table in the league phase. Their opponents, the Knights, had to take a longer route to the final via a thumping win against Vinohrady Biancos in the first knockout game.
The game is nicely poised, with the Knights already pulling off an upset earlier today against the Vanguards, and the former will be hoping for another such performance. With all to play for in the final, both sides should go all out with an enticing game in the offing.

The pitch has improved with each game so far, with the Knights chasing down 70 in the previous game without breaking much of a sweat. While the batsmen will target the square boundaries, the bowlers should also be kept interested by the help on offer from the pitch, making the contest between bat and ball a very competitive one.
