CLK vs KDT Match & Analysis

After a lot of false starts, we are finally at the cusp of the first match of the Lanka Premier League. All the matches are going to be played in Hambantota and a fair few internationals have signed up as well. It will be interesting to see the Sri Lankan youngsters that have not had an opportunity to showcase their talent like so many others their age in other cricketing nations.

The opening match is going to be played between the Colombo Kings and the Kandy Tuskers. Angelo Mathews is going to be leading the Colombo Kings while the Kandy Tuskers will have Kusal Mendis as their likely captain.

Colombo Kings vs Kandy Tuskers LPL 2020 is going to be played at the Mahindra Rajapaksa International Stadium, Hambantota on the 26th of November 2020.

CLK vs KDT Team Previews

Colombo Kings

The Colombo Kings have Angelo Mathews as their main T20 player and while there is no questioning his place in the side, Angelo Mathews has struggled with fitness for quite some time now.

How he holds up for the duration of the LPL, whether he bowls regularly, and how he can maintain his stamina for the match is something that remains to be seen. Andre Russell is another player that has struggled with fitness and at this time, teams should expect him to get injured rather than be surprised by it.

Laurie Evans, Daniel Bell-Drummond are two smart picks. They have done well in the T20 Blast consistently and will love this opportunity to play in Sri Lanka. Dinesh Chandimal, Isuru Udana, and Ashan Priyanjan are the all-rounders to look for out for in this team.

Qais Ahmed, Dhammika Prasad, Dushmanth Chameera, Amila Aponso, and Jeffrey Vadersay could form a pretty effective bowling lineup for the Colombo Kings.

Colombo Kings Playing 11

Dinesh Chandimal, Laurie Evans, Ashan Priyanjan, Angelo Mathews, Andre Russell, Amila Aponso, Thikshila de Silva, Isuru Udana, PVD Chameera, Manpreet Gony, Qais Ahmad.

Kandy Tuskers

The Kandy Tuskers have a very dangerous batting lineup. They have Kusal Mendis, Kusal Perera, Asela Gunaratne, and Brendan Taylor in their team. There is no doubt that Kusal Perera is the best T20 batsman in Sri Lanka at the moment and Kusal Mendis is a giant at this level of the game as well.

Head to head, the Kandy Tuskers seem to have a bit of an advantage in the batting.

Irfan Pathan is an interesting inclusion in the squad. It is an obvious play for the Indian market but could actually pay off. Pathan is a decent hitter of the ball and can bowl a few overs. He has been out of the game for so long, though, that we would not pin any hopes on him.

The Kandy Tuskers have a decent bowling attack as well. Nuwan Pradeep, Vishwa Fernando, Dilruwan Perera, and Kamindu Mendis are all expected to start. Dale Steyn is int he squad as well and while he is a shadow of the bowler he was at his peak, he still adds a lot of experience and know-how to the lineup.

If the batting lineup of the Kandy Tuskers can find form early, we think this is going to be a tough team to beat.

Kusal Perera, Asela Gunaratne, Kusal Mendis, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Irfan Pathan, Kamindu Mendis, S Prasanna, Naveen-ul-Haq, Nuwan Pradeep, Lasith Embuldeniya, Kaveeshka Anjula.

CLK vs KDT Toss Prediction

This is the first match of the tournament and so the team winning the toss may want to chase to see how the pitch behaves. Also, any dew that comes in later will be a great advantage to the chasing team.

Read our guide on toss predictions to learn how we analyze and come up with our tips.

Pitch and Conditions

We expect the weather in Hambantota to be excellent for cricket. There is no rain predicted for match day. The pitch should be excellent for batting. The surface is flat and the ball comes onto the bat nicely.

A score of around 170 can be seen as par for the surface.

CLK vs KDT Betting Tips

Early matches can be a bit tricky to call because the strategies of the teams are not yet known. There may be some surprises in store or the pitch may behave differently than expected. That being said, there is no doubt that the Kandy Tuskers have a better-balanced team. Their batting is more powerful and the bowling is just as good as the Colombo Kings.

Bet on the Kandy Tuskers to win.
