We are into the 15th game of the Lanka Premier League 2021 and the Kandy Warriors would face an uphill challenge as they take on the Colombo Stars. The Kandy Warriors went down against the Jaffna Kings in the last game and currently occupy the bottom of the points table. The Stars got over their poor run in the tournament with a big win in the last game against the Galle Gladiators  

It is a do-or-die game for the Kandy Warriors who have suffered four defeats in the five games they have played so far. Their players have been inconsistent, and the side is down on confidence. The Colombo Stars on the other hand would be in high spirits and they would look to continue with the momentum and improve their position on the points table. 

Kandy Warriors Preview

Angelo Perera’s side suffered yet another loss in the last game, their fourth in five games. In a rain-curtailed game against the Jaffna Kings, the side went down by 7 wickets. They find themselves in a spot of bother as they must win all games from here to find a place for themselves in the playoffs. The Colombo Stars haven’t been at their best and Perera would sniff an opportunity here. 

Openers Charith Asalanka and Ahmed Shehzad played well in the last game and the side would like to see a good start from them. The middle-order hasn’t been in the best form and Minod Bhanuka, Perera and Tom Moores would have to do well here. Ravi Bopara and Kamindu Mendis would have important roles down the order as their top order hasn’t been in the best of form. 

On the bowling front, the side would like to see better spells from Shiraz Ahmed and Nimesh Vimukthi in this game after their ordinary bowling in the last game. This has been one of the major problems for the side in this season. Sachin Colombage, Mendis, and Binura Fernando would have to keep the flow of runs under control in the middle overs of the game for the side to challenge the Colombo Stars.

Kandy Warriors Predicted Playing XI:

Angelo Perera (c), Charith Asalanka, Ahmed Shehzad, Kamindu Mendis, Ravi Bopara, Tom Moores (wk), Minod Bhanuka, Nimesh Vimukthi, Sachindu Colombage, Shiraz Ahmed, Binura Fernando

Colombo Stars Preview

Angelo Matthew is back leading the side and he would be happy with the performance of his team in the last game. They broke their three-game losing streak to win the last game against the Galle Gladiators by 41 runs. The side batted well, and their bowlers also played a complementary role in the last game. Matthews would like to see a similar show from his team in the next game. 

Matthews led from the front and played a good knock, and he would look to set up a good stand with Pathum Nissanka in this game. Ashan Priyanjan also played well, and he would aim to set up partnerships with Tom Banton and Seekkuge Prasanna in this game. The side would also like to see big hitting towards the end from Dinesh Chandimal and Ravindu Fernando in this game. 

Dhananjaya de Silva and Ravi Rampaul leaked runs with the new ball in the last game and the side would like to see better spells from them. Seekkuge Prasanna has enjoyed good form and the side would like to see a good show from him in this game. Dushmantha Chameera, Priyanjan, and Naveen-ul-Haq would aim to offer good support to the side in this game. 

Colombo Stars Predicted Playing XI:

Angelo Mathews (c), Pathum Nissanka, Tom Banton, Ashan Priyanjan, Dhananjaya de Silva, Dinesh Chandimal (wk), Ravindu Fernando, Seekkuge Prasanna, Dushmantha Chameera, Naveen-ul-Haq, Ravi Rampaul

Weather Conditions

The skies over Colombo and there are predictions for rains during the game on December 14. The track has been flat, but the conditions are likely to be challenging for the batsmen during the game due to the weather. The side batting first would aim at a score of 170 runs on this surface.

Venue Details

R. Premadasa Stadium, Colombo is a batsman’s paradise. The fast outfield and the flat surface at this ground make it a good venue for big scores. This hasn’t been a happy venue for the fast bowlers who have generally struggled here in the past. Spinners have done well in the past as there is a lot of assistance for them on this surface.

Toss: To Bowl

It is an afternoon game and batting conditions are expected to be best at the start of the game. Most sides have preferred to bat first and piled up big scores on the board. The side that wins the toss here would have no doubts in opting to bat first.  

Kandy Warriors don’t have the luxury of playing poor cricket anymore. A loss here would end all their hopes of making it to the next round of the tournament. Their bowlers would have to pull up the socks and do well in this game for the side to win. The Colombo Stars are back in full strength, and they have good depth with the bat and the ball. This would put them ahead in the tournament.
