The 4th match of Finnish T10 League 2020 will be played between Empire CC and Otaniemi CC at the Kerava National Cricket Ground in Kerava.
The match starts at 03:30 PM local time (06:00 PM IST) (12:30 PM UTC). This game can be streamed live on Fan Code and the YouTube channel of European Cricket Network.
On Sunday, the cricketing action in Finland is set to get more exciting as an even shorter format will be adopted. It will only be 10 overs per side and one can surely expect some big-hitting and enthralling matches of cricket. Six teams will compete with each other in a total of five games from June 7
In the penultimate game of the day, the Empire CC will be playing Otaniemi CC. While this will be the second match of the day for the former, the latter will be playing its first game. Empire CC came up with an impressive performance in their recent T20 game where they won by 10 runs. Otaniemi CC isn’t a part of the Finnish Premier League T20.
The rain has been a concern in Finland for the ongoing cricketing action. But it is good news as the chances of precipitation are quite low on Sunday. With the sun out and good weather, the players should enjoy themselves on the field.
The pitch has been getting better as more games are being played. In a way, the batsmen have also adjusted accordingly and have been bringing out better performances. At this juncture, though, it seems to be a sporting one and neither the batsmen nor the bowlers have an added advantage.
Average first innings score: 66 (Last two T10 matches played at the venue)
