The pitch at the Vassil Levski National Sports Academy greatly favored the batsmen on the opening day of the ECS T10 Bulgaria. However, low scores have been more frequent on this ground in the last few matches, with the bowlers enjoying the conditions. Batting second should be the preferred option at the venue as most matches in the tournament have been won by the chasing teams.
