Colombo Strikers are coming to play against Dambulla Aura after witnessing a defeat against Jaffna Kings. The Strikers choose to bat first after winning the toss and Pathum Nissanka (36 off 25) and Babar Azam (24 off 21) gave a stable start to the team. However, the team lost the momentum in the middle order. When it came to bowling, Naseem Shah picked up 2 wickets in 3.3 overs at an economy of 6.30 but the rest of the bowling attack displayed a much higher economy and couldn't destabilize the opposition.
Skipper Babar Azam will be motivating his bowling attack to do a better job against Dambulla Aura.
Predicted Lineup: Pathum Nissanka, Babar Azam (c), Nuwanidu Fernando, Iftikhar Ahmed, Mohammad Nawaz, Lahiru Udara (wk), Chamika Karunaratne, Ramesh Mendis, Naseem Shah, Lakshan Sandakan, Matheesha Pathirana
Both teams are at a stage where they know that they need a win to make sure they qualify for the next round. However, Colombo Strikers are in major trouble because of their weak bowling. We predict another win for Dambulla Aura against Colombo Strikers on Saturday.
