Colombo Stars News

Colombo won four and lost four of their LPL group matches this year. They started slowly, but have recently won 3/4 games – only the champions Jaffna Kings stopped them.

Their better form is perhaps because Angelo Mathews is back from injury. He joins the super consistent Dinesh Chandimal in a strong middle-order. In their last game, the Stars might have discovered another gem. In only his third appearance, leg-spinner Jeffrey Vandersay took 6/25 from four overs against Kandy on Friday. Vandersay or Mathews could easily swing the Colombo-Dambulla win probability in their team’s favour.

Colombo Stars’s Likely XI

Kusal Perera, Ashan Priyanjan, Dhananjaya de Silva, Tom Banton, Dinesh Chandimal, Keemo Paul, Angelo Mathews, Seekkuge Prasanna, Jeffrey Vandersay, Dushmantha Chameera, Naveen-ul-Haq

Dambulla Giants News

Dambulla have won three and lost four completed games in LPL 2021. Their form has slipped a bit recently: the Giants have lost all of their last three matches. At this crucial stage of the competition, Dambulla need their overseas players to shine again.

Opener Phil Salt is among the leading run-scorers. Imran Tahir, who was in the Indian Premier League earlier this year, is one of the leading wicket takers. One of these two could easily swing the Colombo vs Dambulla win probability in favour of the Giants.

Dambulla Giants’s Likely XI

Niroshan Dickwella, Phil Salt, Janith Liyanage, Dasun Shanaka, Najibullah Zadran, Sachitha Jayathilake, Chamika Karunaratne, Ramesh Mendis, Marchant de Lange, Tharindu Ratnayake, Imran Tahir

Venue & conditions

For the knockout stages, the LPL moves from Colombo to Hambantota. In Colombo, the team batting first won 4/8 day/night matches like this one.

The weather forecast says there is a chance of thundery showers during this game. This might not be good news for spinners, if the ball gets too wet.

Colombo Stars vs Dambulla Giants Toss Prediction

Dambulla are the only team with a winning toss record in the 2021 LPL. The Giants won an impressive 7/8 tosses in the group stages.

For the Colombo vs Dambulla toss winner, I am picking Dambulla to extend their good form.

Colombo Stars vs Dambulla Giants Winner Prediction

Recommended Bet: Back Colombo to win @ 1.68 with Pure Win

This is a big game. The winner will be one step away from the final. The loser will be out of the tournament. My win prediction is for Colombo to get the result they want.

The Giants have beaten Colombo twice this year, but they were close games. Since then, the Stars have got better. Dinesh Chandimal is as solid as ever, while Angelo Mathews looks dangerous. I think Colombo’s strong middle-order can send the Giants home on Sunday.
