ECC T10 2021: Match 16, Finland vs England XI – Preview, predicted XIs, pitch report, weather forecast, match prediction, and live streaming details

A formidable England XI will take on a reeling Finland side in Match 16 of Group C of the European Cricket Championship – ECC T10 – on Thursday, September 30 at Cartama Oval, Spain.

England XI had a perfect winning record coming into the third day of the tournament, but much to everyone’s surprise, they were beaten by a motivated Italy side by 6 wickets.

After a loss on the third day, England XI got themselves back on track, thrashing the Czech Republic to secure a mammoth 72-run win along the way.

England XI stand comfortably atop the Group C points table with five wins and a solitary loss to their name. Coming into this contest, they will look to give their star players some game time while also sorting out their batting line-up ahead of the playoffs.

Finland, on the other hand, will need to play some good cricket on the final league stage day if they are to cement a playoff berth. Their win against Italy seems ages ago and the Finnish outfit need to come out all guns blazing if they are to qualify.

They had a forgettable third day, losing some crucial fixtures against Italy and Germany. The loss against Italy hurt their qualification chances as the Italians leapfrogged them to secure fourth place in the Group C points table.

Despite going up against a side of England XI’s caliber, Finland must not lose hope. They must take inspiration from Italy and look to target the chinks in the England XI side’s armor which were exposed in their loss against Italy.
