Heavyweights GYM Helsinki take on Finnish Pakistan CC
GYM Helsinki Gymkhana will win the match
Finnish Premier League matches have gained good viewership this season and cricket is slowly regaining its lost field with international cricket back. GYM Helsinki Gymkhana is expected to wrestle Finnish Pakistan CC in this match. GYM Helsinki has won three of their last four matches and is slowly gaining momentum in the league. They will look to continue their impressive run and seal their place in the knockouts earlier. Finnish Pakistan CC is currently placed last in the points table and has the catching up game to play to stand a chance for qualification.
GYM Helsinki posted a good total of 140 runs on board against Vantaa Cc last night. Openers Saif Ur Rehman (64 runs) and Pankaj Saharan (31 runs) set up the platform with an 81-run opening partnership. Their lower order scored just 16 runs in the last 3 overs after both openers were dismissed.
Their bowling unit never really gave the opposition any chance in the chase. Jaleel Ahmed was the pick of the bowlers with 3 wickets. Faisal Shahzad, Junaid Khan, and Irfan Yousafzai bowled superbly with combined bowling figures of 9-0-31-4.

Finnish Pakistan CC were bowled out for just 104 & 92 runs in their last two matches. They were reeling at 18/5 at the end of 5 overs chasing a total of 140 runs last night. AB Rehman (26 runs), Mohammed Tariq (18 runs), and Jaree Junah (14 runs) helped their team cross the 100-run mark but were never going to trouble the chase.
AB Rehman and Bilal Khan picked up three wickets each but gave away runs at an economy rate of over 8 RPO. Mohammed Tariq, Jaree Junah, and Shaid Sarfraz had economy rates below 6 RPO but failed to take wickets and had combined match figures of 11-1-57-0.
AB Rehman – AB Rehman picked up 3 wickets and scored 26 runs with the bat for the team. He must look to improve his economy rate to further strangle the opposition effectively in the middle overs.

Kerava has dark, gloomy, and rainy weather on the match day. The weather forecasters predict rain interruptions to make an appearance in this match. Hope we get some action even if it is a shortened match.
Bowlers are expected the dominate the batsmen owing to the damp and slow nature of the pitch. The overcast conditions will further tilt the pitch in favour of bowlers. We expect the average score to be in the range of 120-140 runs in this match.
Teams must bat first in this match as the rain interruptions may blow up the required run rate if the match gets shortened.
GYM Helsinki has a good batting and bowling attacks that are working in cohesion for the team. They are really gaining momentum and will look to continue their domination on other teams. Finnish Pakistan CC has the most inconsistent batting line up that is yet to cross 130 runs after 7 matches. Their bowlers are often left with very less to score on board and have fared better than the batting department. We expect GYM Helsinki Gymkhana team to win this match.
