The Kandy Tuskers were served with a 54 runs cold defeat by the Jaffna Stallions on Tuesday. On the other hand, Dambulla Viikings conveniently registered a 28- run win over the Colombo Kings.
With matches on successive days and the tournament reaching its business end quickly, betting tips claim each team will be eyeing for a win. A win in this game will set their momentum; hence Dambulla Viikings will be the favorites.
Dambulla Viikings win this game.
Skipper Dasun Shanaka has led from the front registering two fifties to his name in three LPL 2020 games. Thus as per today match prediction, the Dambulla Viiking would be expecting their skipper to carry on his decent run. Even the veteran English all-rounder Samit Patel has been doing a reliable job for the bat and ball team.
As per match tips, the bowling lineup has prospered as a combined unit. Pulina Tharanga, Anwar Ali, and Malinda Pushpakumara, all claimed two wickets each. It is the top three in the batting order that is a matter for the Dambulla Viiking – they have tried multiple combinations, but nothing has driven so far.
The Kandy Tuskers have succumbed to easy defeats for the opponents. The bowling unit led by Nuwan Pradeep hasn’t been impressive and have kept leaking runs. This has caused uninvited pressure on the batting roster. Betting tips say the addition of Brendan Taylor has been bolstering, but they need to pull up their socks if they need to keep their hopes alive. Also, the likes of skipper Kusal Perera and Kusal Mendis will have to perform better given their skill and power.
The venue, Pitch Report, and Toss Prediction:
Although this is the second game for the day, we shall witness another high-scoring encounter between Hambantota’s two sides. The white ball will come on to the bat pleasantly, allowing the batsmen to attack.
However, the batsmen will be wary of a certain turn on offer for the spin bowlers, making for a smooth contest in the middle overs. Dew is assumed to play a role in the second innings. Thus as per the match tips, both teams will choose to bat first on winning the toss. Today match prediction claims toss will be critical.
Key Players to watch:
Veteran batsman Upul Tharanga, all-rounder Samit Patel and attacking batsman Dasun Shanaka of Dambulla Viikings, will be prime players to watch in this match as per the betting tips. Pacer Nuwan Pradeep, explosive batsman Kusal Perera, and Kusal Mendis of Kandy Tuskers will be the main players to watch in this match.
