Match Details

The 51st match of the Finnish Premier League T20 between the Greater Helsinki CC and Empire CC will be played at the Kerava National Cricket Ground.

This match starts at 05:30 PM local time (08:00 PM IST) (02:30 PM UTC). It can be streamed live on the Fancode app.

Preview:

Two teams, that are on the opposite ends of the spectrum, will come face-to-face in the upcoming Finnish Premier League 2020 encounter. This has been a terrible season for Greater Helsinki CC with them having won only their second game in their previous encounter against Vantaa CC. With two wins in 11 games, they are placed at the bottom of the points table.

On the other hand, Empire CC has been one of the best performing teams in the tournament. They are second on the table with 9 victories out of 12. They would see this game as a wonderful opportunity to improve upon their NRR and possibly aim for that first spot on the table. Greater Helsinki CC must make amends to the batting performance if they are to create an impact.

Expert Advice:

Abdullah Attique bats too low down the order and could be a risky pick for your Dream11 Fantasy team.

Shoaib Tahir Qureshi didn’t feature in the last game. If he plays the upcoming game, slot him into one of your Dream11 Fantasy teams.

You can only pick four all-rounders and it is tough to leave out Raaz Muhammad. If you don’t wish to take a risk, have the same four all-rounders as we have in Suggested Playing XI No.1.

Probable Winners:

Empire CC is predicted to win this game.
