Candy Tuskers will take on Dambulla Vikings in the third match of the Sri Lanka Premier League. The match will be played at Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium and will start at 3:30 pm local time.
The Candy Tuskers failed to defend 219 in their first match and will expect a better bowling performance this time. Kusal Perera is one of the most dangerous T20 batsmen, and 87 in his first game is clear about the fact that he is in superb form and it will be very difficult to stop him. Rahmanullah Gurbaz was another batsman who looked really good. Not bad for starting a multi-team tournament with 53 runs off 22 balls.
Kusal Mendis and Asela Gunnaratne spent some significant time in between and gave themselves some easy runs. Overall his batting looks really good; The only concern is his bowling which is fully colored. Candy needs to make some definite changes to his bowling combination. Replacing Irfan Pathan with Dale Steyn is not bad at all.
Dambulla will be playing its first game of the Vikings’ tournament and thus bringing its best XI will be a task in itself. We hope Paul Sterling will open with Upul Tharanga. In Oshada Fernando, Angelo Pereira, Niroshan Dikwela and Dasun Shanaka, Dambulla has good batting.
KDT Top Players
Kushal Perera – Kusal Perera was at his best in the first match and scored a superb 87. He also wants to run in his good form in LPL 2020 against Dambulla.
Rahmanullah Gurbaz- A flat pitch, hard ball, short boundaries, Rahmanullah Gurbaz will be itching to get back on the field. He was superb in the first match and Candy would have been expecting a similar performance from him.
Kusal Mendis – Kusal Mendis spends some significant time in the middle against Colombo and is well accustomed to the pace and bounce of the pitch. He is a batsman who can handle innings simultaneously while other attacking batsmen can play their shots around him. He will be the lead batsman for the Candy Tuskers.

Paul Sterling – Paul Sterling can be dangerous at the top. Although they have not played cricket very late, they will be eager to start the tournament at a high level.

Kasun Rajitha – Kasun Rajitha can impress batsmen with some real speed. He is the best bowler in Dambulla and can be supported to perform well against Kandy
