GHC vs SKK Team Previews
Greater Helsinki Cricket Club
This is the first match for GHC in the tournament so there are more unknowns with this team than its opponent. We have to rely on past records from the previous year’s club championship to find out the key players. There can always be some new players that emerge or some changes in the team’s strategy.
For this match, we are looking at the wicketkeeper-batsman Abdullah Attiqe. He is a very good hitter of the cricket ball and will be counted as one of the main batsmen of the team. Unfortunately, not too many other good batting prospects jump out at the moment.
Choudhary-Shahzad Shabbir is the other batsman we would recommend keeping an eye on but the overall batting strength of the team is definitely a bit weak.
The real strength of the team lies in its all-rounders. Ziaur Rahman and Ali Wairs are both very good players that can be expected to contribute to the batting as well as the bowling. If the pair of them is able to score enough runs to get the team to a good total, GHC may be in with a chance of winning.
Kashif Muhammad and Naveed Shahid are the two bowlers that will be leading the attack.

SKK Stadin ja Keravan Krikettiseura
SKK won its first match after scoring 129 runs and defending that with ease. The batting performance of SKK in that match left a lot to be desired. None of the top-orde batters scored any runs and had to be bailed out by the middle-order.
That shows good depth in the batting, however, getting your key batsmen in form is going to be very important.
Players like Peter Gallagher got a start in the previous match but did not really convert it into a big one. We expect better from him, Mirza Zeeshan Baig, and Nathan Collins in the upcoming match.
On paper, the batting strength of SKK is definitely more than GHC.
Raja Waqas was touted as one of the best bowlers in the Finnish Premier League and he showed just why he is rated so highly. He picked up three wickets for just 15 runs and was key to SKK winning that match.
Nirav Shah and Yathu Vijayratnam are also pretty good bowlers to have in the side.

GHC vs SKK Betting Tips
We think SKK has the advantage heading into this match. Not only does it have a stronger batting and a decent bowling attack but it also has the advantage of knowing the conditions. Not having played a match earlier could cost GHC heavily.
Bet on SKK Stadin to win.
