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. 

Weather Report

Few clouds are hovering over the city and a couple of showers are expected during the day. 

Pitch Condition

The pitch is a nightmare for bowlers. It’s a placid wicket for the batsmen to make merry.

Kandy Tuskers Team News & Playing 11

KDT Team News

Kandy Tuskers boast of a quality batting line-up but need to make some changes in their bowling attack. We expect them to bring in Dale Steyn in place of Irfan PathanKDT Key Players

  • Kushal Perera – Kusal Perera was at his brutal best in the first match and scored a magnificent 87. He would like to carry on his good form in LPL 2020 against Dambulla too.
  • Rahmanullah Gurbaz– A flat pitch, hard ball, short boundaries, Rahmanullah Gurbaz will be itching to get back to the field. He was terrific in the first match and Kandy will be hoping a similar sort of performance from him.
  • Kusal Mendis – Kusal Mendis spend some crucial time in the middle against Colombo and have got well used to the pace and bounce of the pitch. He’s one batsman that can hold the innings together while other attacking batsmen can play their shots around him. He’ll be a key batsman for Kandy Tuskers.

Dambulla Hawks Team News & Playing 11

DVK Team News

We expect Dambulla to start with Paul Stirling, Samiullah Shinwari, Anwar Ali and Samit Patel as their first-choice foreign players

DVK Key Players

  • Paul Stirling – Paul Stirling can be dangerous at the top. Though he hasn’t played a lot of cricket of late, he’ll be eager to start the tournament on a high.
  • Niroshan Dickwell – Dickwell is another batsman to watch out for. He is a decent batsman and Dambulla would want him to get among the runs at the start of the tournament.
  • Kasun Rajitha – Kasun Rajitha can rush the batsmen with some genuine pace. He’s Dambulla’s best bowler and can be backed to come good against Kandy

DVK Team Form

A lot of Dambulla players are going to play after a long time so they might take some time to get used to the condition.
