KDT vs DHK Match Prediction & Analysis

The Lanka Premier League has gotten off to a great start as we saw a Super Over in the very first game. One of the teams involved in that encounter was Kandy Tuskers. Now, it is going to be facing up against Dambulla Viking as both teams try to get their first points on the board.

A relatively young crop of players heads the Dambulla Viking lineup while we now have a better idea of the lineup to expect from the Kandy Tuskers. The surface in Hambantota has been excellent to bat on so far but it may start to slow up sooner rather than later as the matches pile up.

Kandy Tuskers vs Dambulla Viking LPL 2020 is going to be played at the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium, Hambantota on the 28th of November 2020.

Team Previews

Kandy Tuskers

Kusal Perera is the best T20 batsman in Sri Lanka according to us and he was at his best in the opening match of the season. He top-scored with 87 and took full toll of the somewhat poor bowling he was facing.

It seems like the lack of bowling quality could be a trend in the LPL and so we could continue to see the batsmen prosper.

Rahmanullah Gurbaz was very effective at the top of the order and will get another chance to for sure. Kusal Mendis and Asle Gunaratne spent some important time in the middle as well. The batting looks to be in good order at the moment.

The bowling, however, was terrible. Irfan Pathan was pedestrian and we really can’t see any cricketing justification for him being in this tournament. Naveen-ul-Haq, Nuwan Pradeep, and the others were put to the sword.

Perhaps we may see more of Kamindu Mendis and Seekkuge Prasanna in this upcoming match.

The Kandy Tuskers need to improve their bowling otherwise they are going to be put to the sword against most teams.

Dambulla Viiking

We think Paul Stirling could open the batting alongside Upul Tharanga in this match for Dambulla Viking. The team has some pretty good batting options with Oshada Fernando, Angelo Perera, Niroshan Dickwella, and Dasun Shanaka.

These are talented young Sri Lanka players that have all played international cricket. All of them could respond well to this extra responsibility that they will have to take. We like the chances of Niroshan Dickwella having a big impact on LPL 2020.

He is unconventional, can take advantage of the small boundaries, and is going to be facing some pretty average bowling.

What about Dambulla Viking? Does it have the kind of bowling to be able to make an impact?

We see Anwar Ali, Lahiru Kumara, Kasun Rajitha, Samit Patel, and a number of other all-rounders in the squad.

We think there is a good possibility of Dambulla Viking coming up with a decent bowling attack to challenge the Kandy Tuskers.

KDT vs DHK Toss Prediction

It appears as if the team winning the toss is going to want to field first for the time being. That should be seen as a significant advantage since defending can be tough at Hambantota.

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

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch is absolutely flat and the boundaries seem to be pulled in quite a bit. The idea is to set the stage for some big-hitting matches to try and get the spectators hooked. We do expect the spinners to play a much bigger role as the tournament progresses.

Right now, however, the conditions are loaded in favor of the batsmen.

A score of around 200 appears to be gettable every time.

KDT vs DHK Betting Tips

We are going to stick with the Kandy Tuskers in this match even though their bowling was pretty terrible in the opening match. The batting lineup on both teams is strong, however, the presence of Kusal Perera and Kusal Mendis gives the Kandy Tuskers a slight edge.

The Tuskers have also played one match already and so will be better versed with the conditions.
