Lanka T20 League 2023 

Match 3: BK vs CS



B Love Kandy will cross swords with Colombo Strikers for the 3rd match of the Lanka T20 League 2023. The game is scheduled at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Monday, July 31, at 7:30 PM. 

Kandy will play their first match of this league season whereas Colombo will enter this match with a loss in their first match against the Jaffna Kings by 21 runs. 

B-Love Kandy’s primary weapon is their mystery spin. Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Wanindu Hasaranga are prime aspects of their bowling attack. Other bowling options include Isuru Udana, Dushmantha Chameera, Nuwan Pradeep and Aamer Jamal. 

Angelo Mathews, Dinesh Chandimal, Fakhar Zaman, Dinesh Chandimal, Mohammad Haris and Asif Ali are capable of producing high-quality batting which will keep their side well covered. 

On the other hand, Colombo Strikers are coming off a straight defeat in the inaugural match of the series. Niroshan Dickwella is the highest run-getter for the Colombo side with 58 runs scored at a strike rate of 170. He has hit 1 six and 9 fours till now. Matheesa Pathirana is the bowler the Strikers will depend on to bring early breakthroughs.

Pitch and Weather Report

The pitch at Lanka promises an intriguing contest, offering early movement for seamers with the new ball while favouring spinners as it wears down. Though turn is limited, slower bowlers can exploit the lack of pace. Once batsmen settle in, ample scoring opportunities await.

Expect a cloudy day with a slight 12% chance of rain, while the temperature fluctuates between a comfortable 29 and 26 degrees.

Match Prediction

Colombo Strikers must try to rejuvenate themselves. Their batting looked shabby in the first game, and that cost them the match. Their batters need to convert their starts into big scores and put a challenge for their opponents. B-Love Kandy has an experienced squad with cheeky bowlers and fine-touch top-order batters. We expect a close encounter but the Kandy side has more chances of getting on the top.
