The England team is expected to keep the momentum and win this fixture to keep their 1st position intact and continue to be positive ahead of the playoffs. While the Finland team will be under pressure to perform well, due to the risk of getting out of the tournament’s playoffs due to only 1 win in the league matches. It is expected to be a one sided contest, but everything can not be predicted.
In their last league match, the batters were brilliant to put a score which was not chaseable at all, and was one of the highest totals in the ECC T10 history. The top contributors in the batting department were Alex Mellor and Tom Bevan. Then in the bowling, Sam Pearce and Andy Rishton, and Rich Edwards turned up with 2 wickets each and impressive economy.
The left handed batsman has been in full flow since the last few matches and helped the team to post one of the highest total of 165 in the European Cricket history. Alex has been building the innings well and his finishing has been impeccable and would look to continue the same form. In 5 matches of the tournament, Alex has smashed 127 runs at 45.33.
The bowler has been picking consistent wickets in the tournament and can be your differential pick. He has put in hard lengths in the death overs, and his natural pace with swing has done wonders in the power play overs for the team. In 5 matches of 2021, Rich has done a fine work of scalping 8 wickets at a fantastic average of 6.12.
