Dambulla Aura vs Colombo Strikers Match Pitch Report
The pitch at the venue in Colombo helped the team batting first in the first leg of the LPL matches. Hence, batting first should be the way forward for teams
What to expect:
Dambulla Aura: Dambulla Aura won their previous match by 9 runs. They batted first in this match and managed to put up 134 runs on board in 20 overs. Kusal Perera who scored 41 runs was the top scorer for the team. He was assisted by Sadeera Samarawickrama who scored 30 runs in 25 balls. Their partnership ensured that the team reach a defendable score.
In the second innings, the Dambulla bowlers were magnificent as they defended the target. Hasan Ali was the pick of the bowlers as he took 3 wickets. Binura Fernando was brilliant as well picking up 1 wicket while conceding only 8 runs in his 4 over.
Dambulla Aura Key Players
- Kusal Mendis – Kusal Mendis played a magnificent innings of 87 against Colombo Strikers. The batter seems to be in good touch and is striking the ball well. Don’t be surprised if he plays another knock of such magnitude.
- Kusal Perera – Kusal Perera has been consistent for Aura. While he has not got big runs, he has chipped in with crucial contributions in many games. He scored 40 when the two teams last met.
- Dhananjaya de Silva – Dhananjaya De Silva will be a key player for Aura. Being a spinner, the Colombo wicket will help him while his batting credibility is never in question, so De Silva is one of the key players for the team.
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: Colombo strikers were unable to chase down a massive total of 193 runs to lose by a close margin of 10 runs. Nuwaindo Fernando (56 runs) and Babar Azam (41 runs) were superb with the bat while Niroshan Dickwella and Chamika Karunaratne played attacking cameos at either end of the innings.
Their bowlers gave away 192 runs in their 20 overs. Naseem Shah (2/21) and Matheesha Pathirana (3/31) bowled well in the match and took regular wickets. The spin department is their biggest worry with their trio of Jeffrey Vandersay, Dananjaya Lakshan, and Mohammad Nawaz giving away 84 runs in their combined 8 overs taking no wickets.
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
