Colombo Kings vs Kandy Tuskers, Prediction & Betting Tips

Colombo Kings will take on Kandy Tuskers in the inaugural match of the Sri Lanka Premier League. The match will be played on the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium and is scheduled to begin at 7:30 local time.

The upcoming months, or we can say the year is going to be a feast for all cricket fanatics. With all the International Cricket lined up, Sri Lanka Premier League will be an icing on the cake for the fans. The tournament will kick start with Colombo Kings taking on Kandy Tuskers. Colombo Kings are hoping for a stellar show from their two big players, Angelo Matthews and Andre Russell. However, both these players have their own issues. Matthew's career has been severely affected by injuries thus his fitness during the course of the tournament will be a big factor for Colombo Kings. Andre Russell on the other hand is coming back from a miserable IPL. Both these players need to be at their best to give Colombo Kings a fair chance.  Laurie Evans, Daniel Bell-Drummond performed brilliantly in the T20 Blast and can play a big part for Colombo Kings. In Qais Ahmed, Dhammika Prasad, Dushmanth Chameera, Amila Aponso, and Jeffrey Vadersay, the bowling looks decent.

They're up against Kandy Tuskers who arguably have the best batting line-up of all. Kusal Mendis, Kusal Perera, Asela Gunaratne, and Brendan Taylor, all can give a nightmare to any bowling line up. The inclusion of Irfan Pathan is an interesting move as well. With all his experience and all round abilities, he can be asset for Kandy Tuskers. Nuwan Pradeep, Vishwa Fernando, Dilruwan Perera, and Kamindu Mendis forms a quality bowling attack. Dale Steyn is also available for Kandy but we doubt that he'll make it to the initial playing XI. Overall, a stronger batting line up gives Kandy Tuskers a definite edge over Colombo Kings.
