The Zurich Crickets play their last league match of the ECS T10 St Gallen League on Wednesday as they face Olten CC.
The Crickets haven't managed a single win and are almost out of the race for a top four finish. They will look to end their campaign on a high but face a daunting challenge in the form of Olten CC. Olten pummelled Zurich Nomads and St Gallen CC on Day 1 and sit at the top of the points table.
Although it seems like a mismatch on paper, we can expect a riveting contest between the two teams on Wednesday.

A flat track with an even bounce and nice carry is expected on Wednesday. The batsmen haven't been troubled too often in this tournament with 100 being breached on a couple of occasions. The bowlers will have to vary their pace to get something out of the pitch, with 90 being a bare minimum on this surface.
