The match 13 of Lanka Premier League 2020 will be held at the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium, played between Colombo Kings and Kandy Tuskers. The match will be kicked off on 5th December (Saturday) at 20:00 (GMT+6).
This is the second game of the day and the two sides are ready for an intense competition on the weekend. Thus far, Kandy Tuskers have won just one game and lost the other 4 games, and they are currently in 4th position in the points table with 2 points.
On the other hand, after their comprehensive victory over table-toppers Jaffna Stallions, Colombo Kings moved to second position in the points table. The side is able to defeat any opposition with enough firepower in the middle order, with the likes of seasoned campaigner Angelo Mathews and Andre Russell.
It will be partly cloudy in Hambantota with no chance of rainfall, the temperature will stay around 24 Degrees Celsius and the humidity will be high at 72%.
The pitch will give the quick bowlers extra pace and bounce, but they need to be very disciplined in their lengths and line. The outfield is very fast and travels well with the ball. A 180 plus score on this wicket is hard to chase, so batting first would be a good choice.
Average first innings score: 167 ( Last five complete games played on this venue )
