Colombo Strikers vs Dambulla Aura Match Pitch Report

No match has been played at Pallekele in the ongoing season. Hence, it is a little tricky to understand how the pitch would behave. Teams should look to the field first after winning the toss.

What to expect: 

Team news:

Colombo Strikers: It was a poor batting performance from Niroshan Dickwella’s side in the last game against the Jaffna Kings. The captain led from the front but didn’t find support from the other players. Dickwella would like to see a more determined effort from his players as they look to earn their first points.   

Niroshan Dickwella played a good knock in the last game and will look to set up a big partnership with Babar Azam. The middle order has a poor outing, and they need runs from Pathum Nissanka, Nuwanidu Fernando, and Mohammad Nawaz. Yashodha Lanka, Chamika Karunaratne, and Ramesh Mendis must use the long handle and add quick runs.  

Mohammad Nawaz bowled well in the last game and will look to get early breakthroughs along with Naseem Shah. Ramesh Mendis and Matheesha Pathirana have an important role in the middle overs, and they must bowl good spells. Chamika Karunaratne and Lakshan Sandakan complete a good bowling attack for the team.

Colombo Strikers Key Players

  • Niroshan Dickwella – Niroshan Dickwella led from the front and kept Strikers in the hunt in a tall chase. The southpaw scored a sublime half-century and put the team in a strong position before his wicket triggered a collapse and the team lost its way.
  • Babar Azam – Babar Azam did get out early in the opening clash but dare you to doubt his abilities with the bat. Babar will be hungry to get back on the field and play a good knock for his team.
  • Naseem Shah – Naseem Shah started well with the new ball and got some decent movement. Wickets with the new ball are a possibility and Naseem will be looking to exploit the fresh conditions and get a few early wickets for his team.

Probable XI: Niroshan Dickwella(w/c), Babar Azam, Pathum Nissanka, Nuwanidu Fernando, Dhananjaya Lakshan, Mohammad Nawaz, Chamika Karunaratne, Ramesh Mendis, Naseem Shah, Matheesha Pathirana, Jeffrey Vandersay

Colombo Strikers Squad: Babar Azam, Pathum Nissanka, Niroshan Dickwella(w/c), Nuwanidu Fernando, Yashodha Lanka, Chamika Karunaratne, Ramesh Mendis, Mohammad Nawaz, Naseem Shah, Matheesha Pathirana, Lakshan Sandakan, Wahab Riaz, Angelo Perera, Jeffrey Vandersay, Iftikhar Ahmed, Dhananjaya Lakshan, Nipun Dhananjaya, Kavishka Anjula, Shashika Dulshan, Lorcan Tucker, Ahan Wickramasinghe, Lahiru Udara, Movin Subasingha, Eshan Malinga

Dambulla Aura: Dambulla lost in the Super Over after they tied the scores while chasing a 181-run target against Galle Titans in their opening match. There were many positives to take from that game for Dambulla Aura.

Though Shahnawaz Dahai and others were expensive in the death overs, the skipper will be proud of the start the bowlers gave. Moreover, the recent games have shown it will not be easy for the bowlers on this ground. The small dimensions here leave very less room for error for the bowlers. The Pacers need to get the yorker right on the money or the ball will be dispatched out of the park.

The deep batting lineup and the fact that the lower middle order stepped up the occasion is a major positive for Dambulla Aura. Hayden Kerr scored a quickfire 20 off 10 and would have made a big difference to the run chase if he stayed on the crease longer.

While openers Avishka Fernarno and Kusal Mendis were out cheaply, there are the big guns in this side and will ones to watch out for. The middle order has the experienced Dhananjaya de Silva and Kusal Perera. 

And with Alex Ross at number 6 and Samarawickrama showing promise at number 5, Mendis will be a happy skipper. All he needs is to find his form and get his bowlers to find their rhythm.

Dambulla Aura Key Players

  • Kusal Perera- Kusal Perera has scored 305 runs in 15 matches of the tournament at an average of 20. The numbers are on the lower side but Perera is one of the most talented batters in Sri Lanka cricket and it will be a great opportunity for him to improve his stats in the tournament.
  • Avishka Fernando- Avishka Fernando came into the limelight after a staggering show in the Lanka Premier League. He is the tournament’s highest run scorer with 926 runs at an average of 26. He is expected to play a key role for Dambulla Aura in the season.
  • Noor Ahmed- Afghanistan’s Noor Ahmed will be a threat on the low and slow turning tracks of Sri Lanka. Noor Ahmed recently played in T10 League and emerged as one of the top performers.

Probable XI: Avishka Fernando, Kusal Mendis(w/c), Sadeera Samarawickrama, Kusal Perera, Dhananjaya de Silva, Alex Ross, Hayden Kerr, Binura Fernando, Shahnawaz Dahani, Ravindu Fernando, Noor Ahmad

Dambulla Aura Squad: Avishka Fernando, Kusal Perera, Kusal Mendis(w/c), Sadeera Samarawickrama, Ravindu Fernando, Janith Liyanage, Dhananjaya de Silva, Pramod Madushan, Binura Fernando, Lungi Ngidi, Treveen Mathew, Wanuja Sahan, Praveen Jayawickrama, Noor Ahmad, Shahnawaz Dahani, Sachitha Jayathilake, Lakshan Edirisinghe, Jehan Daniel, Alex Ross, Hayden Kerr, Dushan Hemantha, Manelker De Silva, Kavidu Lakshan, Matthew Wade

Colombo Strikers vs Dambulla Aura Match Prediction

Both teams are in fine touch with Kings coming into this game high on confidence and carrying the winning momentum. Their bowlers will pose a tough challenge to the batting might of Dambulla Aura. However, considering the depth in the Aura’s batting lineup and their current form, our prediction gives Dambulla the upper hand in this contest. 

While it is a neck-to-neck contest when picking the winner between these two, Colombo Strikers will start as our favorite.

We expect Colombo Strikers to win this match.

Colombo Strikers’ bowling will rest on the shoulders of Matheesha Pathirana, Mohammad Nawaz, and Naseem Shah.

Noor Ahmed has done well in several franchise leagues in the last year or so and he will be expected to perform well for Dambulla in LPL along with spin bowling partner Seekuge Prasanna.
