The 17th match in the Finnish Premier League, 2020 will be played between Gym Helsinki Gymkhana and Greater Helsinki CC at the Kerava National Cricket Ground, Kerava.
The match starts at 6:00 pm local time (8:30 PM IST) (3 pm GMT). This game can be streamed live on Fan Code.
Both Helsinki Gymkhana and Helsinki CC have not got off to the greatest of starts in the Finnish Premier League, however, they remain optimistic of picking up some good form as the tournament progresses. GYM Helsinki Gymkhana started their campaign with a defeat to the Bengal Tigers CC but responded with a victory in a low-scoring encounter against Finnish Pakistani Club the next game. They played four games thus far, winning two and losing two. Their opponents for the day though, are off to a dismal start, losing both their fixtures and are in desperate need of a win.
The temperatures are expected to be pleasant throughout the day in Kerava, with a maximum temperature of 26 degrees celsius. It could cool down a bit more in the evening before the game starts.
The National Cricket Ground has not proven to be a high-scoring paradise as yet and the same is expected to continue in this game. If the team batting first can get anything in excess of 130, the chasing side will struggle with the pitch slowing down.
Average first innings score: 129 (Last five games)
Record of the chasing teams: Won – 2; Lost – 3

Muhammad Ghawas could turn out to be one of the differential picks for this fixture. He chipped in with a crucial performance against Finnish Pakistani club, where he smacked 35 runs with the bat and picked up 3 wickets.
