The 52nd match of the Finnish Premier League T20 between the Bengal Tigers CC and Helsinki Cricket Club will be played at the Kerava National Cricket Ground.
This match starts at 05:30 PM local time (08:00 PM IST) (02:30 PM UTC). It can be streamed live on the Fancode app.
It will be a No.3 vs No.5 battle as far as the points table is concerned in the upcoming Finnish Premier League T20 game. Given that we are reaching the business end of the tournament, with just one game each left after this one for both these teams, this is a very important fixture. The competition is quite tight for the third and fourth places on the table.
While Helsinki CC will want to win this and firm their grip over one of the top four places, Bengal Tigers will fancy winning both their last two matches and giving themselves a chance at the playoffs. Considering the recent form, though, Helsinki CC will go in as the favourites having won four out of their last five games. Bengal, on the other hand, won only one.
There isn’t any chance of precipitation during the course of the game today even though it will be a cloudy day. The temperatures will hover around 19 C.
In the last match, the pitch completely favoured the bowlers and less than 160 runs were scored in both the innings combined. However, there is something in it for the batsmen given that they give themselves some time in the middle and be patient.
Average first innings score: 138 (Last 5 games in the tournament)
Record of chasing teams: Won – 3, Lost – 2, Tied – 0
