GHG vs GHC Team Previews
GYM Helsinki Gymkhana
After three matches in which HGCC struggled to reach 100 runs, it put in an excellent batting performance and chased down 155 against the Helsinki Cricket Club. It was an excellent win and a bit of an upset considering the manner in which Helsinki Cricket Club had played before that.
Runs from the bats of Pankaj Saharan, Arslan Gondal, and a fantastic 50 from Shahid Irshad Gondal won them the match.
Shahid Irshad Gondal smashed four sixes and got his runs at a strike-rate of over 200. Bilal Masud also got some quick runs at the end to put the finishing touches.
HGCC’s batting performed at its best in the previous match it played. Repeating the same kind of performance is going to be difficult, though. We have seen the batting fail in three matches out of four with almost exactly the same set of players.
Atti ur Rahman and Pankaj Saharan have been the best two bowlers for HGCC so far. Shahzad took three wickets in the previous match and is in decent form too.
HGCC will need to find a way to sustain its performance of the previous match because it seems like an aberration to us at the moment.

Ali Masood, Faisal Shahzad, Simaranjit Brar, Pankaj Sharan, Arslan Gondal, Shahid Gondal, Muhammad Hassan, Javed Jan, Muhammad Gawas, Atti Rehman, Saif Ur Rehman.
Greater Helsinki Cricket Club
Greater Helsinki CC has been able to score decent runs in every single match it has played so far. It got 132 against SKK Stadin but lost due to DLS calculations. It almost chased down 148 against Empire CC, falling short by just six runs, and got 161 against the Helsinki Cricket Club in its most recent match.
There are three batsmen that have got fifty-plus scores in the tournament already which is more than what most teams have.
Ghulfam Nazir, Muhammad Ziur Rehman, Naveed Shahid, and Abdullah Attique have all been scoring runs consistently. This should give GHC the confidence that it will be able to rack up more victories in the matches to come. A little bit of luck and some better bowling should help it make that transition.
Abdullah Attique and Ghulfam Nazir are the most dangerous power-hitters of the lineup while Naveed Shahid is perhaps the best suited to bat through the inning.
Naveed Shahid is also by far the best bowler fo the side. He has taken seven wickets when no one else in the squad has more than two. This is the weakness that GHC has to address. There is no point in getting runs if the opposition is just going to score that many more.
Bowlers such as Muhammad Ziaur Rehman, Ali Waris, and Sohail Amin need to step up.

Pitch and Conditions
The weather forecast in Kerava is pretty encouraging. It appears as if we are in store for a sunny day with next to no chance of rain. The outfield will benefit from having the sun bake down it and it could get a bit faster. The pitch is an artificial surface that will not change in character.
Totals may start to go up as the players get used to the conditions. Anything around 135 is going to be tough to chase down.
GHG vs GHC Betting Tips
We think that GHC has the ability to win this match against HGCC. Both teams have different strengths. We think that GHC has the better batting lineup but the bowling attack of HGCC is definitely better. Overall, though, GHC is a team that has yet to peak and we think backing it in this match is the right way to go.
Bet on GHC to win.
