Prague CC Kings comfortably entered the summit clash by registering a massive 65-run win over Prague Spartans Vanguards in the semi-finals. They also topped Group A with six wins from their eight matches and will start the ECS T10 Prague final as favorites.
Vinohrady CC, on the other hand, defeated Group B table-toppers Brno Rangers in the second ECS T10 Prague semi-final by 32 runs. They finished just below Prague CC Kings in Group A. Having defeated the Prague CC Kings earlier this season, Siddarth Goud and co. will be high on confidence to avenge last season’s ECS T10 Prague final loss.

Match: Prague CC Kings vs Vinohrady CC, Final
Date & Time: 15th May 2021, 08:00 PM IST
Venue: Vinor Cricket Ground, Prague.
The track at the Vinor Cricket Ground has favored the bowlers, and one can expect another low-scoring encounter in the ECS T10 Prague final. The pitch is better suited to the pacers than the spinners, who will have to bank on the mistakes committed by the batsmen to pick up wickets. Both teams will look to field first upon winning the toss, with the average first innings score at the venue being 51 runs.
