Players to watch out for Colombo:
Colombo had a winning start to their campaign which means they won’t go for any changes in their line-up. Avishka Fernando and Chamika Karunratne got fifties to their name in the last match. Among others, Dinesh Chandimal, Kamindu Mendis and Upul Tharanga are other reliable options.
In the bowling department, the impetus would be on Akila Dananjaya, Suranga Lakmal who scalped 3 in the last game.
Players to watch out for Kandy:
Their batting completely flattered in the last game in front of lethal Lasith Malinga. Still, the likes of S Samarawickrama, Priyamal Perera and skipper Dimuth Karunaratne will be the reliable picks.
Kasun Rajitha and Jeffery Vandersay got 3-fers to their name in the last game will be the key picks. Among others, Kasun Rajitha and Nuwan Pradeep are also reliable options.
