The Great cricket battle of Helsinki`s
Helsinki CC will win the match
Finnish Premier League enters into the third round of the tournament with every team having played their opening matches. Helsinki Cricket Club takes on the Greater Helsinki CC on the first match of the day. Helsinki CC has been in good form winning both their encounters so far against the likes of Bengal Tigers Cc & Vantaa CC. Greater Helsinki are not having a good campaign as they succumbed to two losses so far against KK Stadin Keravan and Empire CC teams. They will look to end their losing streak with a win in this match against a strong Helsinki CC team.
Helsinki CC successfully defended the target in both the matches to win by 35 & 24 runs respectively. Khalid Rahman is on a purple patch with 44 & 17* runs in the two innings he batted. Akhil Arjunan and Ghulam Abbas have come up match-changing contributions with the bat.
Their bowlers took 8 wickets in just 5 overs last match and they kept picking up wickets from both ends. Obaidullah Sathique and Zakiullah Kamal picked two wickets each while Ghulam Abbas, Akhil Arjunan, and Adnan Syed chipped in crucial contributions in the bowling department.
Ghulam Abbas – Ghulam Abbas set the tone in a 5-over shoot-out with his 20-ball 40 runs. He smashed 3 boundaries and 2 sixes in his knock. He complimented his batting with bowling figures of 1-0-5-1 in the match.
Zakiullah Kamal – Zakiullah kamal has 4 wickets to his name at an economy less than 5 RPO. He figures read 4-0-20-2 & 1-0-4-2 in the two matches. We expect him to continue his good form with the ball.

Greater Helsinki fell short of the target by 6 runs against Empire CC. Naveen Shahid played a superb knock scoring 50 off just 29 balls. Their middle order got starts with 15+ scores but failed to continue till the end. Ziaur Rehman scored fifty in their first match.
Their bowling unit is guilty of conceding too many runs in both the matches. Kashif Muhammed, Ziaur Rehman, and Naveen Shahid took a wicket each and bowled well in the last match. Sohail Amin and other bowlers are giving runs at an economy rate over 8 RPO.
Naveen Shahid– Shahid came in at 37/3 in 7.2 overs and scored fifty despite wickets falling around him regularly. He also contributed with the ball taking 4 wickets in two matches with match figures of (3/16 & 1/25).
Ghulfam Nazir – Ghulfam Nazir has scores of 30 & 21 in the two matches he batted. He should look to convert his starts into fifties and help his team post or chase down big scores.

Kerava is expected to have much improved sunny and bright weather with no chances of rain. We can expect a match with full quota of 40 overs.
Kerava pitch is on the slower side with variable bounce of offer. Batsmen cannot play the ball freely and must wait for the loose balls to score. We expect scores in the range of 130-140 runs in this match.
Teams batting first have an 8-1 win-loss ratio in favor of them. We expect both the captains to be aware of this stat and bat first if they win the toss.
Both teams have a strong batting line-up that has scored runs consistently in the matches so far. But Helsinki CC easily overpowers Greater Helsinki CC in the bowling department. Helsinki CC ahs a all-round good team performing well with bat and ball and have form and momentum with 2 wins on their side. We expect Helsinki CC to win this match too.
Helsinki CC will win the match
