Match Details

The 16th match of 2020 ECS T10 Stockholm League will be played between Stockholm CC and Alby Zalmi CC at the Marsta Cricket Club in Stockholm.

The match starts at 10:00 AM local time (01:30 PM IST) (08:00 AM UTC). This game can be streamed live on Fan Code.


The first match of the final day of the league stage will be played between the Stockholm CC and Alby Zalmi CC. The hosts lost to Kista Cricket Club in their previous game as they failed to chase down 104. They could only reach 76/2 in their 10 overs and their approach was quite baffling given they always had wickets in hand. However, the Stockholm CC would like to put up their best foot forward in this game and win it.

Alby Zalmi CC, on the other hand, haven’t played for the last two days thanks to rain. However, they registered a big win over Stockholm Mumbai Indians in their previous outing. With this being their penultimate game, they would like to make amends for the earlier abandoned matches and win the last two games of league stage.

Weather Report

There is no chance of rain at the venue during the match timings. With the humidity hovering around 50%, the temperature will be 19 Degrees Celsius at 10 AM.

Pitch Report

The surface has been extremely conducive to batting in this tournament. But somehow, the teams chasing haven’t found easy to play their strokes. The team winning the toss is expected to continue to bat first.

Average first innings score: 85 (Last five matches played at the venue)

Record of the chasing teams: Won – 2; Lost – 3

Top Picks

Azam Khalil did well in the previous outing for Alby Zalmi scoring an unbeaten 36 and then picked three wickets as well. He will be crucial again for the team. Faraan Chaudhry scored 31 off just 15 balls with four fours in the previous game and his performance will be key once again. Muhammad Iftikhar opens the innings and will get a chance to score big. Qudratullah Mir Afzal is a decent finisher (scored 11 off 5) and he will bowl his two overs too.

For Stockholm CC, Himanshu Patel’s all-round ability was on display in the losing cause. He picked two wickets conceding only 11 runs with the ball and then scored an unbeaten 33 off just 24 balls with the bat. Apart from him, Niranjan Komalla will be key with the ball having returned with the figures of 2/19 in his two overs. Abhishek Mathur, if he plays, will be key with his all-round abilities yet again.
