In their previous clash, Vantaa CC lost the toss and bowled first. The bowlers failed to make any breakthroughs with the new-ball as Stadin ja Keravan Kriketti openers added 57-run partnership.

Once the openers were dismissed, spinners put on a chokehold on the middle-order.

Off-spinner Ameer Warsha Mohamed was the standout bowler on display and claimed 2 for 12 in his four overs. Medium pacer Sanjeewa Peththahandi produced a splendid bowling performance and claimed important wickets of Atif Rasheed and Areeb Quadir.

Chasing 91 runs from 20 overs, Vantaa CC got off to a worse possible start as the side lost half their side with just 23 runs on the board.
