SKK Stadin failed to chase 170 runs against Helsinki CC in their last group game. Skipper Nathan Collins scored 48 runs off 36 balls but had very little support from the other end. Openers Nathan Collins and Peter Gallagher have been their prolific run-scorers this season while the trio of Atif Rasheed, Jordan O Brien, and Jake Goodwin have come up with vital cameos very often.
