Greater Helsinki CC vs Empire CC Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Greater Helsinki CC will look to avenge their opening loss as they take on Empire CC at the Kerava National Cricket Ground on Tuesday in the Finnish Premier T20 League. With the season barely underway form is hard to read but I’m backing the team from the capital to get the business done.

Greater Helsinki CC Form


Greater Helsinki CC have played one game and lost it by 6 wickets to KK Stadin ja Keravan Kriketti. Kriketti are however a very strong side and among the favourites to go all the way this season.

Batting first at the Kerava National Cricket Ground, Greater Helsinki CC scored a par 132 runs in their allotted 20 overs.  Opening batsman Ziaur Rehman was impressive scoring 55 runs not out. 

Rain however intervened which caused the match to be reduced in overs. This left KK Stadin ja Keravan Kriketti only needing 104 to win – a chase they achieved with the loss of four wickets.

Despite the defeat the capital team will still be confident that they can bounce back. The batsman look in solid form but the bowling department may need to up their game.

Greater Helsinki CC News


After only one defeat I don’t see Greater Helsinki CC making any drastic changes for this clash.

Empire CC Form


Empire CC won their opening match without being particularly impressive against the Bengal Tigers CC. The batsmen from Empire CC struggled to get going with Jonathan Scamans top scoring on 38 runs. The total of 111 runs never looked enough considering it was at under six runs to the over.

Bengal Tigers however offered little resistance with the bat and fell 10 runs shy of the total. The bowling performance from Empire would certainly have pleased them but on the batting side they’ll need drastic improvement.

Empire CC News


After a victory in the first match expect Empire CC to remain largely unchanged for this clash.

Greater Helsinki CC vs Empire CC Match Up


First impressions may last but I’m not convinced that the first matches of the Finnish Premier T20 league tell the full story. Empire CC walked away with a victory but their batsmen struggled to get going. On the other hand, the bowling department is clearly a strength for them.

Greater Helsinki CC will be buoyant despite defeat to a very strong side last time out. Opening batsman, Ziaur Rehman scored 55 and will loom large for Empire as they plan on how to make it two wins from two.
