Helsinki CC is placed in the fifth position and has a close battle between Bengal Tigers & GYM Helsinki separated by only 2 points. Greater Helsinki CC is currently at the last position and they need to win all their remaining matches and hope the other results go their way to qualify for knockouts. We can expect a closely fought contest between these teams with a lot at stake in this match.

Ankith Pushthay (51 runs) and Adnan Qureshi (58 runs) shared a 108-run partnership to set the platform for the team. Zakiullah Kamal scored 40 runs off just 17 balls to finish the innings on a good note.
On the bowling front, Ghulam Butt, Ankith Pushthey, and Amrik Bhatia took 2 wickets each to restrict the opposition for just 130 runs. Adnan Syed and Maneesh Chauhan chipped in with disciplined bowling to aid good support to them.

Greater Helsinki CC ended up with just 80 runs chasing 148 runs and they have scores of 80/9, 104/7, & 116/9 in the last three matches. Muhammed Ziaur Rehman, Ghulam Nazir, and Naveen Shahid have scored over 150 runs but failed to cross the 20-run mark in the last three matches.
Their bowling unit gave away 147 runs giving away too many runs in the final four overs. Ali Waris, Sohail Amin, and Muhammed Kashif picked up a wicket each giving runs at less than 7 RPO. Naveen Shahid and Ziaur Rehman are the top wicket-takers for the team currently.
Naveen Shahid – Naveen Shahid have been lackluster in the last three matches scoring just 46 runs and claiming just a single wicket. He will look to regain form in this match with his all-round performance.
Ali Waris – Ali Waris has been in superb form in the last three matches with figures of 1/23, 1/20, 0/16 respectively. He will look to continue his superb rhythm with the ball and trouble the batsmen in this match too.

Kerava weather is expected to have bright and sunny weather on the match day with just 10% chances of the rain and we expect no rain interruption in this match.
Kerava pitch has a good balance between the bat and ball with a slight advantage to bowlers due to its slow nature. We expect scores in the range of 130-150 runs in this match.
Teams batting first and chasing ahs 50-50 winning ratio in the last 8 matches but no team has chased totals over 130 runs in those matches. Moreover Helsinki CC has two 180+ scores batting first in last two matches.
Helsinki CC team is peaking at the right moment with the qualification race in full swing. They will look to continue their dream run with the bat and break into the top-4 in this match. Greater Helsinki CC despite a lot of individual performers has failed to win matches. They need to come up with spirited performance before their chances of qualification vanish in thin air. We expect Helsinki CC to win this contest.
