We are almost at the midpoint in the Finnish Premier League and things are set up beautifully for the remainder of the tournament. The competition is stiff at the top of the table with Empire Cricket Club at the top and SKK Stadin ja Keravan Kriketti breathing down their neck. The teams below them are striving hard to get out of mid-table muddle with Bengal Tigers CC and GYM Helsinki Gymkhana placed at the third and fourth spot respectively and having six points each.
The upcoming match, which is to be played between Empire Cricket Club and Bengal Tigers Cricket Club is a crucial fixture on multiple accounts. A win for Bengal Tigers will not only push them out of the mid-table muddle but also stop Empire CC from running away at the top. A win for Empire CC, however, would put them in a pretty comfortable position, that is, four points clear of the next best team in the competition. This all-important match is to be played at Kerava National Cricket Ground (KNCG) - Main on Wednesday, 8th July 2020.
Placed at the top of the table, Empire Cricket Club has arguably been the best team of the tournament. From a total of seven matches that they have participated in, they have emerged on top in six matches and have, therefore, 24 points to their name.
As much as their position at the top of the table has been possible due to the teamwork, the individual contributions cannot be ignored. Jonathan Scamans, who bats at number three, has been in fantastic form and is consequently leading the batting charts of the tournament. He has hammered a total of 198 runs in six innings at an average of 28.28. Besides him, however, there is almost no one that Empire CC can rely upon, considering the performances of their batsmen in the tournament so far. Amjad Sher and Shoaib Tahir Quereshi have been their 112 and 111 second and third best batsmen with total tournament runs respectively.
While their batting has done well, its their bowling that has won them important games. They have three bowlers in the top five wicket-takers of the tournament thus far. Mahesh Tambe and Raza Mohammad have 10 wickets each to their name and Amjad Sher has contributed with 8 wickets. Amjad Sher, in particular, has bowled miserly, and his economy of 4.92 speaks volumes about that.
Also known as Empire Lions, Empire CC have remarkably lived up to their name. They are coming into this game on the back of two fantastic back to back wins. Their bowling and batting have both been doing well and despite a bit of over-reliance on Jonathan Scamans, the Empire Cricket Club appears to be in a solid position to challenge Bengal Cricket Tigers in the upcoming contest.
Amjad Sher, Ravi Kumar, Hemanathan Kumar, Raghavendra Sathyanarayana, Kushagra Bhatnagar, Chandra Sekhar, Muhammad Imran, Mahesh Tambe, Shoaib Qureshi, Abdul Ghafar, Jonathan Scamans.
Although Bengal Tigers Cricket Club, also known as BTCC Thundercats, have not been as consistent as Empire CC, the Tigers have certainly drawn a lot of positive attention. With three wins out of five completed matches, they have a decent win-rate and can be a tough team to deal with on their day.
Just when the Thundercats were looking in superb from, rain washed away the match they were favorites to win. Prior to that, they posted a scintillating win over Vantaa CC. Batting first in that match, BTCC Thunderbirds posted an intimidating total of 157, which proved to be too much for VCC. The Thunderbirds' bowlers were excellent in response as they dismissed Vantaa CC entirely for a total of just 83 runs.
The Thunderbirds are heavily reliant on their bowlers to do the business and it is evident from the numbers. None of their batsmen is in top ten run-scorers of the tournament with Md Nurul Huda and Tonmoy Kumar Saha at 12th and 15th spot in the batting ladder. On the bowling front, however, they have Tonmoy Kumar Saha leading the charts. He has so far picked up 10 wickets at an astonishing average of 9.20. Their next best bowler has been Md Beleyet Khan, who has dismissed seven batsmen so far.
All in all, the Tigers have delivered decent results so far, but have some gaps to fill. They appear to be too over-dependent on Tonmoy Kumar Saha to deal the damage in both the departments of the game. Additionally, their batsmen haven't really fired so far and that could be a differentiating factor against an in-form team like Empire CC. If their batsmen can step on the gas pedal in the upcoming contest, the Tigers' challenge will not be an easy one for the Empire Cricket Club.
Tonmoy Saha, Nurul Huda, Belayat Khan, Muhammad Abedin, Shahrukh Ali, Mehran Amin, Rony Sardar, Jabed Kaisar, Md jabed Khan Sohag, Mohammad Asaduzzaman, Habib Al Amin.
With rain likely to play a part, both the captains will be reluctant to come out and bat first as there will be some assistance on offer for the quicker bowlers early on. Also, the teams generally prefer to bowl first in this format and we expect the trend to continue. The captain winning the toss is expected to elect to field first.

The news is a bit gloomy for the fans following the Finnish Premier League T20 as rain is likely to play spoil-sport on the match day. We have already seen a few matches washed out due to rain and this one is likely to be affected as well. The ground features a lush outfield with plenty of value offered to the batsmen for their shots. However, due to the overhead conditions, there is expected to be assistance for the quick bowlers. Over the course of the tournament we have had teams post totals in the range of 130-140 and that will be the par score for this match as well.

The difference between the two teams at the ladder isn't much and it can all change in a matter of few matches. Having said that, Empire Cricket Club has done played consistently across all matches and has six wins to speak for them. They have a well-balanced unit with an excellent amalgamation of all-rounders and specialists. Bengal Tigers Cricket Club, on the other hand, looks over-reliant on Tonmoy Saha and with their batting not firing, the pressure will be immense of Saha. Considering that, as well as the other above-mentioned factors, Empire Cricket Club looks ahead, and is, therefore, firm favorite to win the upcoming encounter.
