Dream11 Top Fantasy Picks All Rounders, Batsman, Bowlers, Wicket Keepers
|Niroshan Dickwella, Bhanuka Rajapaksa
|Angelo Matthews, Dasun Shanaka, Charith Asalanka (VC)
|Seekkuge Prasanna, Sikandar Raza (C), Benny Howell
|Lahiru Kumara, Dominic Drakes, Noor Ahmed
Charith Asalanka can be trusted to deliver for Sri Lanka. He is a highly promising young player who played admirably in the ODI series against Afghanistan. He hit 83 from 72 balls to help Sri Lanka beat the target of 313.
Angelo Mathews provides a wealth of knowledge to the squad. Matthews is a utility cricketer who bats first and bowls second for his team. Matthews’ all-around abilities can net him a lot of fantasy points on a good day.
Sikandar Raza is having a fantastic season in international cricket. He struggled in the first game, but it’s probable that he’ll find his groove again in the games to follow. He brings a lot to the table as an all-arounder.
Seekkuge Prasanna will be crucial to the Stars’ success in this competition. The pitches help the spinners, and Seekkuge, with his precision and variety, might be a game changer for the Stars.
Dambulla’s trump card may be Noor Ahmed. Left-arm Chinamen are uncommon and difficult to confront, especially on these wet conditions.
The ground at Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium is batting-friendly, with a first-innings average score of 168 runs. Both sides struggled for huge scores in their first two games here this season, despite the spin bowlers’ assistance.
The sky will be partly cloudy, with a high temperature of 29 degrees and a low temperature of 24 degrees. There is also a 20% chance of rain.
