Finnish Premier League has almost come to the end of round seven of the league phase with every team facing other team once. GYM Helsinki Gymkhana will meet Vantaa CC in the last encounter of first set of round-robin matches. Both these teams are currently placed in the middle of the points table and a win this match will give them a good surge ahead in the points table. GYM Helsinki have fared batter in the last couple of weeks while Vantaa CC put up inspired performances in last 2 matches despite losing one. We can expect a cracking contest between two teams that are looking to gain momentum.

Kerava has 60% chances of rain on the match day and we expect rain to have a say in the match like reducing the overs or even abandoning the match.
The continuous rain and damp nature of the pitch is slowing down the ball and not helping the batsmen to score freely. We can expect average score in the range of 120-140 runs in this match.
Teams will look to chase the target with rain threat looming and DLS equation coming into the scene.
GYM Helsinki Gymkhana team has a consistent batting lien up comparing to Vantaa CC. Addition of Saif Ur Rehman and Jaleel Ahmed has strengthened their playing XI and they have all bases covered. Vantaa CC will be high on confidence after winning their last match but their batting unit needs to put good score on board more often to win more matches. We expect GYM Helsinki Gymkhana to win this match.
