After an impressive six-wicket win over Colombo Strikers in the opening game of the ongoing Lanka Premier League, Colombo Strikers will take on Kandy Falcons on July 2 at Pallekele International Cricket Stadium. The defending champions Kandy defeated Dambulla by six wickets in the previous match and would be confident of getting the job done against Colombo.

They were fabulous in all departments, which is a position. With the ball, Dasun Shanaka managed to pick up three wickets while opener Dinesh Chandimal had a terrific time in the middle. Towards the end, Shanaka delivered with the bat, smashing 46* runs in 15 deliveries. Veteran all-rounder Angelo Mathews supported him well with a knock of 37* runs off 20 balls as Kandy chased 180 runs in just 17.2 overs.

Meanwhile, Colombo will play their opening game of the campaign on July 2. They have built a strong squad that features the likes of Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Glenn Phillips, Matheesha Pathirana, Taskin Ahmed and captain Thisara Perera among many others. Gurbaz particularly is in brilliant form while Glenn Phillips can change the course of a game at any moment. Overall, a feisty match is expected when these two sides face.

Pitch Report

The surface at Pallekele International Cricket Stadium pitch is generally a balanced one. Bowling first will be ideal but however, a target of 190 runs or above can prove to be tricky.

Probable Playing XIs

Colombo Strikers:

Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), Glenn Phillips, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Chamika Karunaratne, Thisara Perera (c), Shadab Khan, Kavin Bandara, Matheesha Pathirana, Muhammad Waseem, Dunith Wellage, Binura Fernando.

Kandy Falcons:

Andre Fletcher, Dinesh Chandimal (wk), Mohammad Haris, Kamindu Mendis, Angelo Mathews, Dasun Shanaka, Wanindu Hasaranga (c), Chaturanga de Silva, Dushmantha Chameera, Chamath Gomez, Mohammad Hasnain.

Probable Best Batter of the match

Rahmanullah Gurbaz is in terrific form at the moment. He was a force to reckon with in the recently concluded T20 World Cup, where he finished as the leading run-scorer. He smashed 281 runs in eight matches at an average of 35.12 and if he keeps up with the form, it can prove to be difficult for Kandy.

Probable Best Bowler of the match

Sri Lanka international Dasun Shanaka picked up three wickets in the previous match. He gave away just 20 runs in his four overs and was sensational with the new ball. He can be key again.
