Kerava have a good weather prediction with just 10% chances of rain on the match day. We expect rain to have no impact in this match.
Kerava pitch is getting better as the tournament progressed and the average scores have increased in the last 4-5 matches. We can expect teams to score around 140-160 runs in this match.
Batting first is the safe option in this pitch as the pitch might slow down a little as the match progresses.
Helsinki CC batting is in red-hot form with four 150+ scores in the last 5 matches. They also have a good bowling attack to complement and are in superb form with consecutive wins. SKK Stadin has been the team of the tournament with good all-round team. But, Helsinki CC`s surge in the last few matches might prove to be the difference in this contest and we expect them to win this match.
Helsinki CC will win the match
