Match Summary: 

Nice weather in Helsinki after a while and it was perfect for a challenging match like this one. This match was very important for us as it was our eternal rival Empire CC and at the same time we are hoping to be the champion in the second division. However, we batted first and could score only 172 runs. This total was not at all a good score because of the ground size and outfield. We had a fantastic opening partnership. Unfortunately, none of the middle order batsman could honor that until Fahim and Rony could hold the game and took us to a standard position.

However, our bowling was extra ordinary and in front our team spirit Empire CC just got shattered like a sand castle. We took some early wickets and kept them under pressure throughout the match. Finally, we got our victory on a nice sunny day.

Match Result: 
BTCC won by 35 runs
