The first game of what promises to be an action-packed Sunday features a Vinohrady derby as the Rossos take on the Biancos at the Velvary Cricket Ground in Prague.
Both teams had similar outings on Saturday. While the Rossos won their first encounter, they did succumb to the Prague Spartans Vanguards in a close match. Similarly, the Biancos also came up short against the Vanguards and have only one point against their name after two games. With this being their final game, this is essentially a virtual knockout.
While the Rossos have a better chance of qualification, the Biancos cannot afford to lose on Sunday. With a lot at stake for both teams, we can expect a highly competitive game between the two home sides.

Although some inclement weather is on the cards on Sunday, play should take place as scheduled with a lot of help on offer for the pacers. However, the batsmen will be the key on this surface with no variable bounce to keep them in check. Both teams would look to bat first and put on a score of at least 80 upon winning the toss.
