The final game on Day 3 of the ECS T10 Stockholm League pits Kista CC against Stockholm CC at the Marsta Cricket Club in Stockholm. With the points table slowly taking shape with each passing match, both teams would be eager to get the two points on Wednesday.
At the time of writing, Kista CC have just played one game. Although just the one match isn't much, they showed enough grit and character to pull off the first successful run-chase in the tournament against Alby Zalmi CC. While KCC are scheduled to face bottom-dwellers Stockholm Mumbai Indians in Match 14, they will head into this game as the clear favourites.
Their opponents Stockholm CC are also in the mix for a semi-final spot. Although STO lost both their games on Monday, they came out with three points from their two games on Day 2.
Although they are the lesser fancied of the two sides, Stockholm CC have invaluable momentum on their side, which makes for an intriguing match-up. With this being a very crucial game in the context of the semi-finals, you can expect to see some thrilling action between the two sides.
