It appears as if there is a big difference in quality and execution between the top-3 teams of the Lanka Premier League and the bottom two. There is a clear divide that has formed between them and in some ways, it is keeping the interest alive in the group stages.
The top-4 out of the five teams qualify for the semi-finals so it is harder not to make the playoffs than it is to qualify! The Kandy Tuskers and the Gale Gladiators are currently locked in battle to see which team will NOT qualify!
This next match is between the Kandy Tuskers and the Colombo Kings, teams from opposite ends of this divide.
Kandy Tuskers vs Colombo Kings LPL 2020 is going to be played at the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium, Hambantota on the 5th of December 2020.
The Kandy Tuskers have won just one match in the tournament so far. That is terrible for a team that was billed as one of the favorites ahead of the tournament. The problem has been its bowling.
It has been a real struggle for the Kandy Tuskers to be able to find four consistent bowlers to take up the responsibility. They do have some useful all-rounders that can complete the fifth bowler’s quota but the overall quality remains high.
An inability to pick early wickets or keep the runs down is hurting the Kandy Tuskers big time.
Their batting is dependent on the performances of Kusal Perera and Kusal Mendis. Both the players are dangerous and can win matches but they have tailed off after a strong start. Other batsmen like Brendan Taylor and Rahmanullah Gurabz have also struggled to produce anything more than a cameo right now.
An all-round improvement is required for the Kandy Tuskers.
Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Kusal Perera, Kusal Mendis, BRM Taylor, Asela Gunaratne, Irfan Pathan, Dilruwan Perera, Lasith Embuldeniya, MVT Fernando, Munaf Patel, Nuwan Pradeep.
The Kings managed to end the winning streak of the Jaffna Stallions in their previous match and now have a great chance of going level with them on points by winning this match. The Colombo Kings have found a very nice balance in their lineup.
Their senior players are performing at crucial times which is helping them win from some tough positions.
Angelo Matthews has opened the bowling in all of the matches and has been miserly in the powerplay. Dinesh Chandimal is opening the batting and been very successful so far with two match-winning knocks already.
Similarly, Andre Russell is scoring runs and picking wickets at important junctures making the Colombo Kings a very formidable outfit. They are beatable, for sure, but the inherent quality in the team is going to make them a tough opponent to every other team in the LPL.
Isuru Udana, Andre Russel, Qais Ahmad, Dushmanth Chameera, T Kaushal, and Angelow Matthews were the bowlers used in the previous match. This gives the Colombo Kings a lot of flexibility in the bowling department as well.
Dinesh Chandimal, Laurie Evans, Ashan Priyanjan, Angelo Mathews, Thikshila de Silva, Andre Russell, Isuru Udana, Qais Ahmad, PVD Chameera, Daniel Bell-Drummond, PHT Kaushal.
The toss has not been much of a factor in LPL 2020 so far. The pitch remains good throughout and so both teams have a good chance of winning. That being said, the team that wins the toss generally prefers to field first.

There is a bit of rain around in Hambantota, something that is not unexpected for these parts, but hopefully, it is not going to affect the match too much. The pitch has started to slow up a little and so the total may come down a little.
The small boundaries are not going to change, however, and so expect plenty of sixes once batsmen get their eye in.
We are going to stick with the Colombo Kings in this match. They have shown themselves to be consistent and dependable in LPL 2020 while the Kandy Tuskers have not. Both teams have a good batting lineup but the current form and a better bowling attack give the advantage to the Colombo Kings.
Bet on the Colombo Kings to win.
