Kerava weather does not look promising with high chances of rain. This will be second match off the day so can expect a shortened match if the first match is washed away.
Kerava pitch will favor and the moisture due to rain will further slow down the track considerably.The batsmen will find it difficult to time the ball with ease here. We can expect average scores in the range of 120-140 runs in this match.
Chasing is the best option with the rain expected to interrupt and both teams will look to have an eye on the DL par score at all points of the match.
SKK Stadin has a superb well-balanced team with good batsmen and bowlers in the mix. They have excellent depth in their playing XI to provide long batting lien-up and variety of bowling options. Bengal tigers CC depend heavily on few players only such as TonmoySaha, Belayet Khan, and Nurul Huda to perform. We expect SKK Stadin tow in this match.
