Sri Lankan right-handed batsman and right-arm offbreak bowler Dhananjaya de Silva In the most recent match, he added 47 runs and took one wicket. He is a safe selection for this game.
Sri Lankan right-handed batsman Pathum Nissanka He piled up 72 runs in the previous match and will be a good pick for this one as well.

On the day of the match, the temperature is expected to be around 26°C, there will be 46% humidity, and the wind speed is 8 km/hr. During the game, there are no chances of precipitation.
Both departments are anticipated to receive a reasonable amount of assistance because the Eden Gardens pitch serves as an impartial wicket. On this track, pacers will be in the game throughout while spinners can be deadly in the middle overs.
Dasun Shanaka is an excellent candidate for the small league captaincy. In the major leagues, Virat Kohli will be a good choice for captain. Mohammad Shami and Chamika Karunaratne are two of the punts here. For this game, the best fantasy/Dream11 combination is 1-3-3-4.
