Vantaa is expected to have a good bright weather on match day with no chances of rain. We expect an exciting contest with no weather interruptions for sure.
This is the second match at the Tikkurila Cricket Ground. Last match we had a match tally of 197 runs with 18 wickets falling in the match. We expect the bowlers have an upper hand in this match too with average scores around 120-130 runs.
Chasing teams have won just 3 out of the 15 matches played so far and teams succumbed to loss due to inability to handle the pressure in chases.
Bengal Tigers CC has a good all-round team with both their batting and bowling units peaking after two early losses. Vantaa CC came back strongly last night but their batting still lacks the consistency and bowling unit has performed well so far. We expect Bengal tigers CC to win this match owing their stronger batting line-up of the two teams.
BENGAL TIGERS CC will win the match.
