B-Love Kandy Team News & Playing 11

BLK Team News

After winning the tournament in 2023, B-Love Kandy begin their defence of the title with a re-run of last year’s final. Once again, all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga will captain the side and he can call upon the experience of 37 year old Angelo Mathews throughout the tournament.

BLK Team Batting

Although he is more famous for his bowling than his batting, skipper Hasaranga was the highest run scorer in the 2023 Sri Lanka Premier League and we can expect him to bat in an aggressive manner again. Dinesh Chandimal also brings a strong 2023 tournament into this campaign.

BLK Team Bowling

Alongside spinner Hasaranga, Angelo Mathews and Dasun Shanaka are likely to be threatening bowlers for B-Love Kandy in this game. Slow left-arm spinner Chaturanga de Silva took two wickets in last year’s final and will get turn in his match.

BLK Team Form

B-Love Kandy won three matches in a row on their way to winning the tournament last year.

Dambulla Aura Team News & Playing 11

DAS Team News

Mohammad Nabi is scheduled to be Dambulla Sixers’ captain in this tournament but he may not be available for this opening match due to Afghanistan’s late exit from the 2024 T20 World Cup. The entire team will be looking for revenge after losing to B-Love Kandy in last year’s tournament.

DAS Team Batting

There is plenty of batting talent in the Dambulla Sixers squad and we expect keeper-batter Kusal Perera and Danushka Gunthilaka to open the batting. New Zealand’s Mark Chapman has an excellent T20 record and is expected to bat at number three.

DAS Team Bowling

Afghan spinner Noor Ahmad was Dambulla Sixers’ top wicket taker in last season’s tournament but is not in their squad this time around. We expect the combination of Dilshan Madushanka, Mustafizur Rahman and Praveen Jayawickrama to be the top bowlers in this game.

DAS Team Form

Dambulla Sixers won six matches in a row before their defeat in the final of the 2023 Sri Lanka Premier League.
