Denmark are all set to host Finland for a three-match T20I series, called the T20I Nordic Cup, from May 7. All games will be played at Svanholm Park in Brondby. The series provides a great opportunity for both sides to prepare for the 2022-23 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Europe Qualifier subregional tournaments.
Denmark haven’t had the best of times of late, having failed to win a single game out of their last five. Frederik Klokker will be leading Denmark in the T20I series. He will be looking to lead his team by example.
Finland, on the other hand, have won two out of their last five games. They have some exciting players on their side who will be looking to step up in the Nordic Cup.
Nathan Collins has been handed the responsibility of leading the Finnish side in the T20I series. It will be interesting to see whether they manage to beat Denmark at the latter’s backyard.
