Kerava is expected to have a much improved bright and sunny weather on the match day. We expect no rain interruptions in the match whatsoever.
The pitch is hugely in favor of the bowlers and batsmen struggle to time the ball owing to the slow nature of the pitch. We can expect scores of range of 100-120 runs in this match and pitch might slow down further as the match progresses.
Teams batting first has good success rate in the league and chasing teams are struggling to score even targets over 100 runs in last two matches. We expect both captains to bat first if they win the toss.
Both teams have a struggling batting line-up and is yet to post a big score. GYM Helsinki Gymkhana has a strong bowling unit that has taken 19 wickets in two matches with all six bowlers taking wickets. Bengal Tigers CC bowling unit was taken for runs in the rain affected 5-over contest but they bowled well in their opening match. We expect GYM Helsinki Gymkhana to win the match as they will high on confidence after a come from back victory in their last match.
