Kandy Falcons is all set to take on Dambulla Aura in Match 18 of the Lanka Premier League 2022 at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. The two teams are at opposite ends of the points table, however, no team can be taken lightly in a franchise tournament.  

Kandy Falcons have won five of their six games so far in the league stages and are at the top of the points table. Apart from the loss against Galle Gladiators, Kandy Falcons have been on the winning ride so far and have hardly given any room for the opponent to chip in.  

On the other hand, Dambulla Aura finally registered points on board in their previous game against Galle Gladiators. The Dasun Shanaka-led side were clinical in their approach and the top order stepped up to turn the table around for the franchise after a poor campaign so far.

Probable Best Performers from KF vs DA 

Probable best batter: Andre Fletcher 

Andre Fletcher has been in good form since the start of the tournament and he is providing the quickfire starts that the Kandy Falcons would be hoping. The right-hander can hit the ball long and he scored a 22-ball 35 in the previous fixture which included four fours and two sixes. The West Indian will be a massive threat to the opposition.  

Probable best bowler: Wanindu Hasaranga 

The skipper Wanindu Hasaranga has stepped up for Kandy Falcons in the bowling department from the front and he is a reliable bank with the ball. The spinner has got the skills to win the game from any position and he picked up two wickets in the previous game while conceding just 21 runs. He will be looking to produce another impactful performance in the upcoming fixture.
