The 21st match of the Finnish Premier League 2020 will be played between Vantaa Cricket Club vs SKK Stadin Ja Keravan Kriketti at the Kerava National Cricket Ground.
The match starts at 6:00 PM Local Time (8:30 PM IST) (3:00 PM UTC). This game can be streamed live on the Fan Code app.
Things seemed to be getting better for Vantaa CC when they managed to defeat a strong Empire CC side, a team that didn’t taste a defeat till that point in the tournament. Also, that was the only time when their batsmen lived up to the expectations to a certain extent. While it seemed that they would get better from there on, their batsmen failed miserably in the previous game where they were bowled out for only 83 runs.
With only one win in four games and a last spot on the points table, Vantaa CC will come up against the table leaders SKK Stadin Ja Keravan Kriketti in their next game. Kriketti missed out on a victory by a narrow margin against Empire CC but bounced back in their last game with an extremely clinical performance. They’d like to firm their grip on the points table by bagging yet another win in the upcoming game.
It is sad news for the fans if we were to go by the weather predictions. There could be rain after 5 PM and the chances of precipitation increase as time passes. There is every possibility that a part of the match or the entire game could be washed out.
The pitch is quite bowler-friendly. It is best suited for the pacers. Not a lot of high scores were witnessed at this venue. Batsmen have to toil hard for every run.
