Match 6 of the ECS T10 Capelle League pits Sparta Cricket 1888 against Excelsior 20 in Capelle.
Sparta Cricket had a decent opening day with three wins in three games. Although they tried to tinker around with their side, they were able to post scores above 100 with relative ease.
Their opponents, Excelsior 20, also started their campaign with a decent win against Voorburg. Despite being restricted to just 108, Excelsior 20 put in a spirited bowling performance to come away with the victory in the end.
Although both teams are in the running for a top-two finish, one would fancy Sparta Cricket's chances, especially with the presence of former Dutch cricketer Mudassar Bukhari.
However, Excelsior 20 have already shown that they are no pushovers and should give the favourites a run for their money in what promises to be a great contest.

Venue: Sportpark Bermweg, Capelle
Another high-scoring game is on the cards with there being no room for error for the bowlers. With there being little help on offer for them, the pacers have reverted to changes of pace more often than not.
The batsmen will look to take the spinners on, who will be tempted to flight the ball in the hope of getting a wicket or two. 100 is a bare minimum at this venue with batting first being the ideal choice on winning the toss.
