BTC vs FPC Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Jun 16, 2020
The Bengal Tigers CC will be taking on the Finnish Pakistani Club (FPC) in this next match of the Finnish Premier League 2020. Both the two teams are right next to each other in the league standings. They have played three games each and have just one win to their name right now.
The FPL T20 league table is pretty cramped and a single win will help elevate the teams to the top half of the standings.
Neither team is in any great form leading up to this match and so we could be in for a close game.
BTC vs FPC Finnish Premier League T20 2020 is going to be played at the Kerava National Cricket Stadium, Kerava on the 16th of June 2020.
BTC vs FPC Team Previews
Bengal Tigers Cricket Club
BTC won its most recent match against HGCC and finally got some points to its name. The stand out player of the match was Nurul Huda who scored 28 runs off 21 deliveries and then took two wickets while bowling as well.
He is the most important player for BTC and a lot will depend on his performance once more.
Rony Sardar also picked up three wickets while Tonmoy Kumar Saha picked up two wickets too. All in all, BTC put in a commanding bowling performance which will put it in a good frame of mind against FPC.
Muhammad Imrul Abedin scored 44 in the previous match and held the inning together.
The batting is a bit frail when it comes to BTC and they will find it very tough to recover from a couple of early wickets.

FPC Finnish Pakistani Club
FPC was up against a tough SKK Stadin side in its previous match. SKK Stadin is unbeaten in the tournament and was tested by FPC but more than enough for it in the end. FPC gave up 159 runs in its allotted 20 overs.
That is a massive total according to the games we have seen in the FPL T20 so far.
Teams in this competition have struck scores of around 130 for the most part. The lack of batting depth in FPC was always going to be a concern and so it turned out to be.
37 for no loss after three overs is a spectacular start. That is what FPC managed but could not maintain the momentum. Waseem Qureshi scored 57 at the top of the order but no one else really stuck around. Bilal Khan struck two fours and a six in his seven ball stay, Muhammad Aqeel scored 21, and Nadeem Qureshi got 14 as well.
The game was lost the moment FPC lost its first two wickets and everyone in the ground knew that.
The form of Waseem Qureshi is a big positive but the rest of the batsmen need to start contributing more as well.
Bilal Khan, Mohammad Sarfraz, and Adil Khan were all a bit expensive in the previous match. Jaree Ullah Junbah took two wickets but none of the bowlers looked at their best.

Pitch and Conditions
There is a fair bit of rain predicted for match day and we could have some delays. If the weather gods are kind then we may be able to get a full game otherwise a washout is likely. The outfield is going to be heavier than usual with the rain around and will make run-scoring more difficult.
The pitch will be helpful to the bowlers as well. Anything around 130 is going to be competitive batting first. DLS calculations could come into play.
BTC vs FPC Betting Tips
These are two flawed teams with obvious weaknesses. The dependence of FPC on Waseem Qureshi makes us nervous. If he gets out early, FPC is done for. The all-round talent in BTC is a bit better than FPC and this is why we think they are the team to back in this match.
Bet on Bengal Tigers CC to win.
