In the 10th Sri Lanka Premier League match, Dambulla Vikings will play the Kandy Tuskers. The Dambulla Vikings had a great game against Colombo Kings which will give them confidence in this match. Dasun Shanaka and Samit Patel were the two standout performers in the batting department once again for Dambulla. However, they would wish to see their other batsmen get back to form soon.
On the other side, Kandy Tuskers have only one win against his name. They boast of a quality batting line-up, but a weak display from the bowlers spoiled their games. The batting has been very inconsistent and has put the bowlers under extra pressure. The responsibility must be taken up by senior players such as Kusal Perera and Kusal Mendis and help Kandy get enough runs.
It is forecast that the weather will be partly cloudy with only a 10% chance of precipitation with a temperature of about 28 degrees Celsius.
Although this is the second game of the day in Hambantota, another high-scoring encounter is on the cards between the two sides. The ball should skid nicely on to the bat, helping the batsmen with their attacking shots to go through.
However, for the spinners that should make for an even contest in the middle overs, they will need to be wary of any turn on offer. At this venue, 170-180 is a competitive total, with both sides likely to chase after obtaining the toss. In the second innings, Dew is expected to play a part.
