Indo-Bulgarian CC has been the team to beat so far with no losses in three outings. Blessed with an explosive batting unit, the reigning Bulgarian champions are well on course for a top-two finish.
Their opponents, Indian Tuskers CC started on the wrong note, courtesy a disappointing loss to MU Dons. However, they did hit back with a dominant nine-wicket win over Barbarian CC on Tuesday.
Although all the signs point towards another one-sided affair in Indo-Bulgarian CC's favour, they will be wary of the Tuskers bowling unit, led by their captain Romald Lazarus.
All in all, another entertaining game awaits in Sofia with both sides looking to sustain their momentum with a win in this fixture.

Another high-scoring game is on the cards in the ECS T10 Bulgaria League with a batting-friendly pitch on offer. Although the pacers have troubled the batsmen early on with some movement off the surface, they should be in for another long day.
The batsmen will look to take the spinners on with there being no spin available off the surface with the shorter dimensions of the ground favouring the former as well.
With this being an evening fixture, the pitch could be a tad slower with 90-95 being a competitive total in Sofia.
