Botkyrka will lock horns with Stockholm in the 15th match of the ECS T10 Sweden at the Norsborg Cricket Ground in Stockholm on Thursday.
Botkyrka are having a decent ECS T10 Sweden campaign so far, winning three out of their five matches and are currently placed in second spot in the Group A points table. Botkyrka will head into Thursday's encounter on the back of a six-wicket victory over the Forenom Royals. They will be looking forward to picking up a win against Stockholm and further strengthening their position in the points table.
Stockholm, on the other hand, were phenomenal in their last ECS T10 Sweden game wherein they registered an eight-run win over Umea. They have managed to pick up two wins from their five matches and are currently placed in third spot in the Group A points table. Stockholm will have to be at their best to defeat the higher-seeded Botkyrka side.
When the two teams met earlier this season in the ECS T10 Sweden, Botkyrka registered a 11-run victory over Stockholm and will be starting as favorites to win today's game too.

Match: Botkyrka vs Stockholm, Match 15, ECS T10 Sweden
Date & Time: 22nd July 2021, 04:30 PM IST
Venue: Norsborg Cricket Ground, Stockholm.
The pitch at the Norsborg Cricket Ground has turned out to be a tricky one with an average first innings score of 96 runs. A few teams failed to score big on this wicket while others studied the pitch pretty well and managed to reap fruitful rewards. The pacers, who will get some movement early on with the new ball, are expected to dictate the proceedings in today's game. The batsmen will need to be wary of their shot selection on this two-paced wicket. The Norsborg Cricket Ground witnessed the 100-run mark being breached on three of the four occasions on Wednesday. Teams winning the toss should look to bat first and put up a big total on the board.
