The 45th match of the Finnish Premier League T20 is all set to be played between the Finnish Pakistani Club and the KK Stadin ja Keravan Kriketti at the Kerava National Cricket Ground.
The match is scheduled to start at 06:00 PM Local Time (08:30 PM IST) and can be streamed live on FanCode.
Both the teams competing in this match have had a really contrasting run in the tournament so far and the same is reflected in their positions in the points table. The Stadin ja Keravan Kriketi are placed at the top of the points table having won 8 out of their 10 matches and have 17 points to their name. But their opponents in this match are the second last in the 8 team points table.
Out of the ten matches they have played in the tournament so far, they have won just two, getting 6 points in their bag. It will take a really special effort from the side of the Finnish Pakistani Club if they want to get past the might of the Stadin ja Keravan Kriketti successfully.
The weather on Wednesday does not look promising for the players. With a 50 per cent chance of rainfall, there might be some hindrances caused during the course of the match. And, the temperatures are expected to hover around the 19 degrees Celsius mark.
The pitch on this ground has been holding up pretty well in spite of the action it has seen unfolding. There is some help for the batsmen here, but they can face a lot of struggle as there is a lot of room to work with for the bowlers.
Average first innings score: 130 (Last five matches)
Record of the chasing teams: Won – 3; Lost – 2
