Kandy Tuskers vs Dambulla Viiking, LPL 2020
Kandy Tuskers will take on Dambulla Vikings in the third match of the Sri Lanka Premier League. The match will be played on the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium and is scheduled to begin at 3:30 PM local time.
Kandy Tuskers failed to defend 219 in their first match and will be hopeful of a better bowling performance this time around. Kusal Perera is one of the most dangerous T-20 batsmen going around and his 87 in the first game is evident of the fact that he’s in great form and will be very hard to stop. Rahmanullah Gurbaz was another batsmen that looked really good. A breezy 53 off 22 balls is not bad to start a multi team tournament.
Kusal Mendis and Asela Gunaratne spent some crucial time in the middle and got themselves some handy runs. Overall their batting looks really good; the only worry is their bowling that was completely off colour. Kandy need to make some definite changes in their bowling combination. Replacing Irfan Pathan with Dale Steyn is not a bad idea at all.
Dambulla Vikings will be playing their first game of the tournament thus bringing out their best XI will be a task in itself. We expect Paul Stirling to open alongside Upul Tharanga. In Oshada Fernando, Angelo Perera, Niroshan Dickwella and Dasun Shanaka, Dambulla have a decent batting line up.
Their bowling also looks pretty solid with Anwar Ali, Kasun Rajitha, Lahiru Kumara and few talented Sri Lankan youngsters. So, who’s the favourite to win the match? We would like to go with Kandy Tuskers because of their outstanding batting line up but don’t completely count out Dambulla.

KDT vs DVK Toss Prediction
Toss will play a crucial role it’s a difficult ground to defend. Dew can also have it’s say thus bowling first looks the most feasible option.
Few clouds are hovering over the city and a couple of showers are expected during the day.
The pitch is a nightmare for bowlers. It’s a placid wicket for the batsmen to make merry.
