Kerava is expected to have a good sunny and bright weather with no chances of rain. We can expect a match with a full quota of 40 overs.
Kerava pitch is not a kind of pitch where batsmen will enjoy the true pace and bounce on offer. They need to play the ball late and on merit to score runs. Bowlers will dominate the batsmen in a low scoring encounter. We expect scores in the range of 130-140 runs in this match.
Batting first has more success rate than chasing and captains will look to follow the trend in this match too.
KK Stadin ja Keravan has an inconsistent top order while Finnish Pakistan CC struggles to make use of the good start. Both teams have a strong bowling line-up and have strangled the opposition for low scores. KK Stadin has a middle-order that is helping them in the batting department and may well prove to be the difference between both the teams.
