Both teams managed a win against bottom-dwellers Greater Helsinki Markhors in comfortable fashion. Despite the Rapids losing out to Helsinki CC, they are the overwhelming favourites for this game owing to their superior batting unit.
However, they are in for a tough test with the Empire Blades possessing a well-balanced side.
All in all, an exciting game beckons in Kerava with two valuable points up for grabs on Sunday.

Match: SKK Rapids vs Empire Blades
Date: 9th August 2020, at 2:30 PM IST
Venue: Kerava National Cricket Ground, Kerava
An even contest between bat and ball awaits at the Kerava National Cricket Ground on Sunday. The pitch is slightly on the slower side with the batsmen unable to take the bowlers on from the outset.
Also, the spinners should extract some turn off the surface, keeping the batsmen in check in the middle overs. Both teams will ideally look to bat first with 100 representing a par score at this venue.
