Kerava has a dark and cloudy weather with almost 60% chances of rain as per the weather forecast. We expect rain might some role with reduction of overs in the match.
Batsmen are getting used to the Kerava pitch and scoring more runs in the last few matches. We can expect teams to score around 140-150 runs in this match.
Chasing teams have 65-35 success rate in the matches so we expect both captains to chase down the total. A good score on board may bring DL equation in favor of team batting first in case of rain.
This match is going to be a cracking contest between two teams in good form, momentum, and wins on their side. Empire CC has a slightly better bowling attack when compared to GYM Helsinki which might give them a slight edge in this contest. Empire CC has won matches from crunch situations this season which might give them psychological advantage. We expect Empire CC to win this contest.
