KDW vs DHG Team Previews

Kandy Warriors

Kennar Lewis finally came good in the previous match for the Kandy Warriors but it was still not enough to help it win. No one else from the batting lineup was able to contribute. Charith Asalanka was impressive but his inability to convert his starts into big scores has been very disappointing.

None of the other batsmen are really in good form and it is difficult to see them being able to turn things around at this late stage in the tournament.

The bowling attack for the Kandy Warriors is also one of the weakest in the entire LPL. Lahiru Kumara and Binura Fernando lead the lineup but both of them can be quite expensive as well. There is also a lack of a world-class spin bowling option.

K Lewis, Charith Asalanka, Al-Amin Hossain, Angelo Perera, Kamindu Mendis, RS Bopara, Minod Bhanuka, Asela Gunaratne, Nimesh Vimukthi, Binura Fernando, Shiraz Ahmed.

Dambulla Giants

The Dambulla Giants lost a high-scoring match cut down by rain against the Galle Gladiators in their previous outing. That was not really a loss to be too concerned about. The nature of the format is such that teams are always going to lose one or two matches. The fact that the Dambulla Giants were able to play agressively and come close is much more important.

Philip Salt, Dasun Shanaka, and Najibullah Zadran are in good form. It was also encouraging to see Janith Liyanage bat with freedom in the previous match.

The bowling attack of the Giants is a bit of a weak link, though. Ramesh Mendis, Imran Tahir, and Joshua Little are good bowlers but they have been quite expensive in this edition of the Lanka Premier League so far.

The Kandy Warriors, though, may struggle to actually take advantage of the bowling weaknesses.

Pitch and Conditions

There is some rain around in Colombo but we don’t expect the match to be washed out. A couple of interruptions and some reductions in overs can be expected. The pitch has been a bit slow but the conditions still remain in favor of the batsmen. Scores of around 150 should be seen as par.

KDW vs DHG Betting Tips

We are going to bet on the Dambulla Giants to win this match. They have a stronger batting lineup than the Kandy Warriors and are definitely in better form as a team. The bowling attack of both teams is not very strong, though.

Bet on the Dambulla Giants to win.
