Colombo Kings vs Dambulla Viiking, LPL 2020

Colombo Kings will take on Dambulla Vikings in the seventh match of the Lanka Premier League. The game will be played on the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium and is scheduled to begin at 3:30 PM local time.

Dambulla Vikings couldn’t survive a Thisara Perera assault as they went down by a massive margin of 66 runs to Jaffna Stallions in their previous game. The problem is not the loss but the way they’ve played in the first two matches. 

Yes, they won the first game but their performance was far from decent. Apart from Samit Patel and Dasun Shanaka, none of the batsmen has looked like getting big scores.

Niroshan Dickwella is one of the senior members of this team but he’s been very disappointing. On this wicket if you get a start, you’ll have to convert them into a big score. Upul Tharanga too look finished.

To be fair, their batting looks very vulnerable. The bowling isn’t too good either. Lahiru Kumara has been expensive, so does other bowlers like Anwar Ali and Lahiru Madushanka. Samit Patel, Ramesh Mendis and Aftab Alam bowled well in the last game and Dambulla Vikings will look up to them for some inspiration in the next game.

Colombo Kings on the other hand looks a real force. First, they chased 219 in 20 overs then Andre Russel’s blitz helped them smash 96 in 5 overs in their next game. 

Runs from Andre Russell especially will be a big relief for Colombo Kings. Players like Laurie Evans, Dinesh Chandimal, Daniel Bell Drummond, Angelo Mathews form a very strong batting line up. Isuru Udana and Qais Ahmed were good in the first match but still, there is a lot of scope for improvement in this department. Overall, the bowling for both teams is an issue but Colombo has a much, much better batting line up and are our favourites for this game.
