KSA Team News

After winning two matches in a row, there was plenty of optimism in the Kandy Samp Army squad ahead of their fixture with Dubai Giants on Friday. However, they were well beaten by 56 runs and now will be looking for an immediate reaction in this game.

KSA Team Batting

Kandy Samp Army have an over-reliance on their opening pair of Ireland’s Kevin O’Brien and Australia’s Aaron Finch and that was highlighted against Dubai Giants as they put on 67 for the first wicket before the team slumped to 100/8. Captain Finch and O’Brien are set to be the key batters once again for Kandy in this fixture. 

KSA Team Bowling

It was a tough afternoon with the ball for Kandy Samp Army’s bowlers against Dubai Giants with all six of their bowlers conceding over 10 runs per over. Tino Best and Chris Mpofu will be dangerous in this game even if they continue to leak runs.
