GYM Helsinki Gymkhana batting unit has failed to chase down two 120+ totals and are bowled out in all three matches so far. Pankaj Saharan waged a lone battle scoring 41 runs in the last match. Faisal Shahzad, GM Muhammed, and Irfan Yousafzai have come up with a few cameos but lack consistency.
Bowling is their stronger suit and they have 29 wickets in three matches and restricted the opposition for scores less than 130 in all matches (124/10, 98/9, & 128/10). Atti Ur Rehman and Pankaj Saharan leads the bowling charts for the team with 5 & 4 wickets respectively. Jaleel Ahmed and GM Muhammed have chipped in crucial wickets for the team.
Pankaj Saharan– Pankaj Saharan put on an all-round performance with 2/12 & 41 runs in the last match. His all-round exploits will give great balance & depth to the team composition.
Atti Ur Rehman – Rehman is their best bowler so far with 5 wickets at an economy of less than 5 RPO. His bowling figures read 3/21, 1/17, & 1/21 in the three matches. His ability to pick wickets in powerplay will derail the opposition.

The weather forecast does not look good with 50-60% chances of rain on the match day. We keep our fingers crossed and hope rain won’t play spoilsport in the match.
The batsmen are scoring runs more freely in the last 2-3 matches. Teams have posted 150+ scores consistently batting first. The overcast conditions may help faster bowlers early in the match. The pitch is expected to slow down as the match progresses.
Teams batting first have won almost all the matches so far and batting first is a no-brainer in this pitch.
Helsinki bowling team was taken for a lot of runs in the last match while GYM Helsinki Gymkhana has never conceded more than 130 runs so far. But Helsinki CC has a strong batting line-up and has a good overall balance in their playing XI when compared to GYM Helsinki team. We expect Helsinki CC to win this match.
Helsinki CC will win the match
