The Finland team is quite a talented squad but the results have not gone into their favour in the first few matches of the tournament. They have to hold their nerves better in crunch moments of the game. In the last league match, although they scored 110 runs, but could not bowl better to defend the score. The top picks for the team will be Aravind Mohan and Amjad Sher.
One of the most reliable players of the Finland team will need to maintain composure and stitch crucial partnerships with the team-mates to secure crucial victories in the upcoming matches. Aravind has started his innings well, but has not been able to convert that into a big one, and need a sincere effort in this aspect to win the match for the team.
The bowling all-rounder will be crucial to the team with his middle-order contributions. In the last few matches, Amjad has been terrific with his ball-striking and has hit glorious sixes to help the team in finishing the team well. Along with the bat, he needs to contribute with the ball to give a helping hand to the team in securing a much needed victory.
