Kandy Warriors (KW) will take on Colombo Stars (CS) in the 15th match of the Lanka Premier League 2021 at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Tuesday, December 14.
KW vs CS Dream11 prediction
Kandy Warriors and Colombo Stars have both had a dismal season so far with one and two wins respectively from five matches each. Both are currently languishing at the bottom of the points table and desperately need a win to resurrect their campaign.
The match is expected to be a fiercely competitive battle with both teams looking to stay in contention for the knockout stages although Colombo Stars hold an upper hand courtesy of a big win in their last fixture against Galle Gladiators.
KW vs CS Dream11 team tips for Lanka Premier League 2021
Top Tip: Best batter
Charith Asalanka of Kandy Warriors is the best bet amongst the batters. The southpaw has scored 118 runs in five innings this season and has been the best batter for his side in this tournament. Asalanka’s ability to mix caution with aggression makes him a crucial player, especially in the middle-overs. Selected by 94 per cent of the fantasy users, Asalanka will be a worthy inclusion for 9.5 credits.
Top Tip: Best bowler
Amongst the bowlers, Dushmantha Chameera of Colombo Stars will be a good choice. The right-arm pacer has seven wickets in five matches this season with a wicket almost every thirteenth ball of the match. The 29-year-old has 212 fantasy points to his name this season and cannot be ignored at any cost.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Seekkuge Prasanna of Colombo Stars is the best all-round option for this game. The leg-spinner is amongst the leading wicket-takers this season with nine wickets in five innings at an economy of 5.73. The 36-year-old is also dangerous with the bat. Batting lower down the order, Prasanna can score at a brisk pace especially at the fag end of the innings. Selected by 84 per cent of the fantasy users, he remains a good budget pick for 8.5 credits.
Amongst the wicket-keepers, Colombo Stars’ Dinesh Chandimal is the best option. The 32-year-old is currently the leading run-getter in the tournament with 181 runs in five innings at a whopping strike rate of 154. With 292 fantasy points already this season, Chandimal is a must-have pick for 9 credits.
