Dambulla Giants take on Colombo Stars in this 2021 LPL eliminator. They meet in Hambantota at 3:00pm on 19th December. Who is going home from the tournament? You’re in the best place to find out and bet on cricket online. Coming up next, my Colombo vs Dambulla betting tips!
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.
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.
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.
