After losing both their matches, Dambulla and Kandy will play against each other in the hope of getting some win. The match will be played on Apr 08 at Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium, Dambulla
Because of Dambulla batsmen poor batting show, they have lost both their matches played so far in Super Provincial One Day Tournament 2019. Captain Angelo Mathews cracked 78 runs in the last match against Galle. He was looking to get some form back and he would look to give another excellent batting performance down the order. Most of the other batsmen of Dambulla including Niroshan Dickwella and Danushka Gunathilaka had a brief stay in both the matches. These two will be required to make some runs and give a solid openening stand.
Jeevan Mendis, Ishan Jayaratne and Isuru Udana are quality bowling option in Dambulla and they have shown consistent bowling performance so far.
Kandy are also in a similar situation like Dambulla as they also have lost both their matches. In the 1st match their batsmen got out at just 99 runs while chasing 255 runs against Galle. In the 2nd match against Colombo, despite having some good batting display by batsmen like Dimuth Karunaratne (c), Sangeeth Cooray and Pathum Nissanka, they were not able to chase 289 runs and ended up losing the 2nd match continuous match. These batsmen need to be in prime touch with the bat if Kandy team has to get a win in this match against Dambulla.
Kasun Rajitha and Jeffrey Vandersay have taken some wickets for Kandy in the 2 matches. These two need to strike back at regular intervals. Nuwan Pradeep has been wicketless so far. If too get some wickets, then it definitely strengthen team bowling attack.
