BTC vs ECC Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Jun 03, 2020
The next match of the Finnish Premier League T20 is going to be played between the BTC Thundercats and the Empire Lions (ECC). This is the first match for both the teams. They will have the advantage of having seen a couple of games be played on the surface and will know what to expect.
We saw 129 defended with ease in the previous match and that gives us an indication of what we can expect in the upcoming matches.

BTC vs ECC Team Previews
Bengal Tigers Cricket Club
Most of the players that are taking part in this tournament are relatively unknown. We have to go by the stats that are available and this is where it appears as if the BTC Thundercats have a pretty weak batting lineup.
A few players that stand out to us include M Imrul-Abedin who is also the wicketkeeper for BTC. He was the highest run-getter for BTC last season with 471 runs. His strike-rate was not too great but that is not something that is going to concern BTC too much.
They also have two pretty decent all-rounders in their squad. Nurul Huda and Shahed Alam are extremely capable of scoring runs with the bat and picking up wickets on a regular basis. These two are probably the most important players for the side and will be crucial to their results.
We don’t see too many other good batting options, to be honest.
The bowling is also a bit weak. Tonmoy Saha is the standout in this aspect. He picked up 36 wickets at an economy rate of just 4.30 in the previous season. He is also pretty capable of contributing with the ball. A must for anyone playing Dream11 as well.
The lack of depth is a big concern when it comes to the BTC Thundercats. One of their big players needs to have a great game every time otherwise the side could struggle.

Empire Cricket Club
We think the ECC Empire Lions have more going for them in this match. They have some very good players that have consistently performed at this level. They also have two all-rounders that are going to be very crucial for them.
Amjad Sher and Mahesh Balasaheb Tambe. No one took more wickets in the previous tournament than Tambe while Sher was consistent in both the batting and bowling departments. We think both of these players are better bowlers than they are batsmen but having them available in the middle-order is a big advantage.
Vanraaj Padhaal was the third-highest scorer in FPL 2019 and is going to open the batting for ECC. His ability to get some big-hits early makes him very dangerous as well. Abdul Ghaffar will lead the bowling for his side. His economy rate is among the best of all the bowlers in the FPL 2020 and he often helps his other teammates pick up wickets as well.
The balance of the ECC Empire Lions seems to be better than the BTC Thundercats.

Pitch and Conditions
The weather forecast is very good and we should have a nice sunny day to watch cricket. The pitch is on the slower side. A total of 130 should be seen as par and anything above 140 is going to be very hard to chase. Accurate bowlers will thrive in these conditions.
BTC vs ECC Betting Tips
There are some dangerous players in both the teams but ECC Empire Lions seem to have an edge in every single aspect of the game. They have a better batting lineup, quality all-rounders, and one of the best bowlers in the league leading the attack.
We think the ECC Empire Lions are the better team in this contest.
Bet on the ECC Empire Lions to win.
