Kerava is expected to have a rainy weather for this week with 60% chances of rain on the match day. We expect rain to have an impact in this match.
Kerava pitch has a good balance between the bat and ball and both teams scored 140+ runs in the previous match here. We can expect teams to score around 140-160 runs on this pitch.
Both teams will look to bat first and put the opposition on pressure while chasing the target. .
Vantaa CC performed better than their last few matches despite losing the match last night. They have a very weak batting line-up with no batsmen yet to score a fifty so far. FPC Pakistan will be high on confidence after ending their streak and will look to continue their winning momentum. They too have an inconsistent bowling attack but a strong bowling attack when compared to Vantaa CC. We expect FPC Finnish Pakistan to win this match.
