The England XI side are rather new to the European Cricket Circuit and players from County Championships and T20 Blast are included in the England squad.

The Finland team is expected to open their account in the ECC T10 2021 with a victory in this match. In their first league match, they were accurate with the ball and need a little improvement in the batting department, and they will be able to go past the opponents. While, the England team with a little inexperience will have to perform well with the bat to win the match.
The England team has been impressive in their first league match against Germany team. They have picked up 8 wickets (until the writng of this article), and have put tremendous pressure on the experienced Germany team. They can certainly be a dark horse in this tournament and nothing short of brilliance is expected from the squad in the upcoming matches.
The experienced batsman has rubbed shoulders with top cricketers in England and is expected to the best batters from the England XI team. He has the ability to stabilize and attack well against the quality attacks, and will fancy his chances in the tournament. In 11 domestic matches (T20 format), Dan has scored 123 runs at an average of 13.66.
The bowler came out of syllabus for the experienced Germany team in the Match 3 of the ECC T10 Group C fixture. Rich bowled out hos full quote of 2 overs with the new ball and was impressive to take crucial wickets of Rohit Singh and Abdul Shakoor, who have been impressive batsmen for the opposition, which helped the team to contain them to a below par score.

The Finland team will look to find a way to secure a victory against the rampaging England XI team who bowled out opposition to a score of 55 in their last league match, While, Finland lost their first fixture of the tournament against Czech Republic by 13 runs and would look to improve their performance, and the key players for them will be Aravind Mohan and Naveed Shahid.
The prolific run-scorer for the Finland team will possibly be the best pick for this match due to his consistent performances in the recent months, whether be it in T20s or the T10 format. In the first league match, he was the top-scorer for the team with 29 runs and led a fight to chase the score, but other batters could not support him well.
The bowler has a fine experience of delivering for the team in crucial sitautions and will be looking to replicate the ECS T10 performances that he displayed earlier in the year, where he was pitch-perfect with his lengths and was able to take wickets at will. In the first league match against CZR, Naveed picked a wicket and scored 14 runs.
