Dambulla Aura vs Colombo Stars Match Details

Match: Dambulla Aura vs Colombo Stars, Match 05 | LPL 2022

Date: Thursday, 08 December 2022

Time: 15:00 (GMT+5.5) / 15:30 (GMT+6)

Format: T20

Venue: Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium, Hambantota


Dambulla Aura vs Colombo Stars Preview

  • In their inaugural game, Dambulla Giants were defeated by Jaffna Kings by 9 wickets.
  • In their opening game, Colombo Stars were defeated by Kandy Falcons by 109 runs.
  • Neither team had a player reach the fifty-point mark in their most recent game, while their bowling units only claimed one wicket.

 

At the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium, the Dambulla Giants will play the Colombo Stars. The fifth game of the 2022 Lanka Premier League begins on Thursday, December 8, at 15:30 local time.

Their 2022 LPL season got off to a rough start when they were soundly defeated by Jaffna Kings on Wednesday in Hambantota. Despite opening batsman Jordan Cox’s four sixes and three fours, Dambulla’s score of 121-9 was defeated with 4.2 overs left.

Andre Fletcher put on a batting clinic on Tuesday, and Angelo Mathews’ team will not need to much improve to achieve a better result than the 109-run loss they suffered against Kandy Falcons. The Colombo team has a ton of quality, so we anticipate a much better performance in this match.


Dambulla Aura vs Colombo Stars Weather Report

There is currently no probability of rain. Around 28 degrees Celsius will be the average temperature, with a moderate 70 percent humidity level.


Dambulla Aura vs Colombo Stars Match Toss Prediction

Given that the teams that bowled first won both of last night’s matches, we anticipate both captains to try to reach the goal in this contest.


Dambulla Aura vs Colombo Stars Pitch Report

The Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium will host the game. This pitch’s primary characteristics are turned for spinners and low bounce for quick bowlers, with a par score of roughly 155.


Dambulla Aura Team News & Probable Playing XIs

With 43 runs from 22 balls, young English keeper-batter Jordan Cox led the way for Dambulla in Match 3. Dambulla will want to forget the 15.4 fielding overs on Wednesday after just taking one wicket, with Noor Ahmed removing Avishka Fernando by a Jordan Cox stumping.

Dasun Shanaka (c), Jordan Cox (wk), Shevon Daniel, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Ramesh Mendis, Sikandar Raza, Lahiru Madushanka, Lahiru Kumara, Noor Ahmad, Chaturanga de Silva, and Paul van Meekeren.


Colombo Stars Team News & Probable Playing XIs

At the top of the order, captain Angelo Mathews scored 26 runs off just 23 balls, but only two other West Indians—Dominic Drakes at number eight and Keemo Paul at number nine—also reached double figures. Seekkuge Prasanna, a 37-year-old leg-spinner, was one of four bowlers with economy rates under 10 runs per over as Colombo Stars’ lone wicket-taker against Kandy Falcons.

Match: Australia vs West Indies, 2nd Test | West Indies tour of Australia

Date: Thursday, 8 Dec 2022 

Time: 09:30 (GMT+5.5) / 10.00 (GMT+6)

Format: Test

Venue: Adelaide Oval, Adelaide 


AUS vs WI Preview

  • Since 1997, West Indies has failed to win a game and dropped 13 of their last 15 contests there.
  • Australia’s batting was dominant in the most recent game because of double-hundred scores from Marnus Labuschagne and Steven Smith.
  • Australia has a stellar record at the Adelaide Oval and only suffered one loss in the last ten matches.

 

At Adelaide Oval, Australia and West Indies will square off. The second game in the series, this day-night Test, begins on Thursday, December 8 at 14:30 local time. 

Australia put on an outstanding show in Perth during their first home Test match since the end of the Ashes earlier this year. After suffering a minor strain in Perth, Captain Pat Cummins was questionable for the game, but it is anticipated that he will be able to guide the team.

Despite suffering a severe loss last week in Perth, the visitors did display some grit, and they will be hoping to carry that over to this game. All-rounder Kyle Mayers, batsman Nkrumah Bonner, and bowler Kemar Roach all have injury concerns, but Roach is anticipated to participate. 


AUS vs WI Weather Report

The opening two days of the game will be a little cloudy in Adelaide.


AUS vs WI Match Toss Prediction

The team batting first has prevailed seven times in Adelaide’s last 10 Test Matches. Keeping the record in mind, we anticipate the side winning the toss to choose to bat.


AUS vs WI Pitch Report

The first two days would be favorable for batting, and the third day and beyond will see a slowing of the pitch. Batsmen will need to concentrate on forming alliances in this field.


Australia Team News & Probable Playing XIs

Usman Khawaja will try to establish a strong partnership by opening the batting with David Warner after his disappointing performance in the last game. With Travis Head in the middle with Steven Smith and Marnus Labuschagne playing well, this middle order is robust. Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood will try to get early wickets in this match after doing well with the ball on a calm track in Perth.

Recent form – W L W W D 

Australia’s Probable XI

Pat Cummins (c), Alex Carey (wk), David Warner, Usman Khawaja, Steven Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, Cameron Green, Travis Head, Nathan Lyon, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood


West Indies News & Probable Playing XIs

With Tagenarine Chanderpaul as his opening wicket partner, Kraigg Brathwaite will want to establish a strong opening wicket partnership. Nkrumah Bonner, Jermaine Blackwood, and Kyle Mayers would need to improve upon their performance from the previous game in the middle order for the team. In the previous game, their bowlers were unable to trouble the Australians. Jayden Seales and Kemar Roach should start out with tight stints for the team.

West Indies battled in Perth with both bat and ball, but Australia outplayed them. Overall, we anticipate a competitive Test, but with another win for Australia.

LPL 2022 Cricket Free Tips | Galle Gladiators vs Kandy Falcons: 4th Match

Galle Gladiators vs Kandy Falcons

Galle Gladiators vs Kandy Falcons Match Details

Match: Galle Gladiators vs Kandy Falcons, Match 04 | LPL 2022

Date: Wednesday, 07 December 2022 

Time: 19:30 (GMT+5.5) / 20:00 (GMT+6)

Format: T20

Venue: Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium, Hambantota


Galle Gladiators vs Kandy Falcons Preview

  • The Galle Gladiators have dropped 2 of their past 5 Lanka Premier League contests.
  • Kandy Falcons have won just two of their last five Lanka Premier League games.
  • Both players split the victory in their head-to-head matchup because they each won two of the four games.

 

At the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium, the Kandy Falcons and the Galle Gladiators will square off. On Wednesday, December 7, the fourth game of the 2022 Lanka Premier League begins at 19:30 local time.

Galle Gladiators’ season got off to a poor start on Tuesday as Jaffna Kings defeated them by 24 runs. The Gladiators fell short despite a strong opening partnership of 58 when needing 138 to win, and they will need to play better in this match.

Every club hopes to get off to a strong start in a competition, but Kandy Falcons surpassed all expectations on Tuesday by thrashing Colombo Stars by 109 runs. Although it will be challenging for them to match that performance in this game, the Falcons will be fired up.


Galle Gladiators vs Kandy Falcons Weather Report

There doesn’t appear to be any prospect of rain, making the weather prediction ideal for playing cricket. The temperature range between the maximum and minimum will be between 30°C and 23°C.


Galle Gladiators vs Kandy Falcons Match Toss Prediction

Both teams would try to capitalize on the new pitch and score many runs. The record also demonstrates that hitting gets more challenging in the second inning. The team that wins the toss will get to bat first.


Galle Gladiators vs Kandy Falcons Pitch Report

The Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium will host the game. For the spinners, there will be a lot of turns, and on a surface with little bounce, hitting sixes will be challenging.


Galle Gladiators Team News & Probable Playing XIs

The Galle Gladiators’ bowling attack will make them very happy. In addition to being frugal, the bowlers also took wickets at key moments, preventing the opposition from scoring runs freely and so slowing the flow of runs. After just one game, they are unlikely to alter their lineup. 

Recent form – L L W W W

Galle Gladiators’ Probable XI

Kusal Mendis (c), Azam Khan (wk), Iftikhar Ahmed, Nuwanidu Fernando, Movin Subasingha, Shammu Ashan, Pulina Tharanga, Imad Wasim, Nuwan Pradeep, Nuwan Thushara, Wahab Riaz


Kandy Falcons Team News & Probable Playing XIs

The Kandy Falcons’ performance in their opening match would be the epitome of a fantastic start to the competition. This was one of the best victories in the Lanka Premier League thanks to dominance with the bat and ball. After just one game, they are unlikely to alter their lineup.

Recent form – W L W L L  

Kandy Falcons’ Probable XI

Kandy Falcons is the favourite to win this match.

 

It would be simple to assume that this will be another easy win for Kandy as the Galle Gladiators started the competition with a loss and the Kandy Falcons started their campaign with a decisive triumph. With Kusal Mendis’ runs keeping the Gladiators competitive, we anticipate a close game. However, as a whole, we anticipate that Kandy Falcons will triumph.

Format: T20

Venue: Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium, Hambantota


Dambulla Aura vs Jaffna Kings Preview

  • Last year, Jaffna Kings triumphed against Galle Gladiators to capture the prized title.
  • In the previous season of the Lankan Premier League, Jaffna Kings had notable players in Avishka Fernando and Mahesh Theekshana.
  • In the Qualifier 2 game played in Hambantota the previous year, Jaffna Kings defeated Dambulla Aura.

 

At the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium, the Dambulla Aura and the Jaffna Kings will square off. On Wednesday, December 7, the third game of the 2022 Lanka Premier League begins at 15:00 local time.

The Dambulla Aura’ 2021 season wasn’t very noteworthy, even though they were third overall and fourth in the group stage. They trailed the top two teams by a significant margin, and they will be hoping that their new-look team this year can run a more effective campaign.

On Tuesday’s first game of the 2022 LPL, Jaffna Kings got off to a victorious start. Before limiting the Galle Gladiators to 113 all out, they scored 137 from 19.5 overs. In this encounter, the Kings will be attempting to make it two victories in a row.


Dambulla Aura vs Jaffna Kings Weather Report

While there will be a complete cloud cover, there is currently no danger of rain. 28 degrees Celsius will be the average temperature, and there won’t be much humidity.


Dambulla Aura vs Jaffna Kings Match Toss Prediction

Both teams will strive to select the winning side, bat first, and score more than 155 runs. The team that batted first won the previous game at Hambantota.


Dambulla Aura vs Jaffna Kings Pitch Report

The Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium will host the game. A par score should fall between 150 and 160 on this spin-friendly course.


Dambulla Aura Team News & Probable Playing XIs

The team will depend on its captain Dasun Shanaka, all-rounder Sikander Raza, Haider Ali, and Bhanuka Rajapaksa to score the majority of the runs in the batting department. Lahiru Kumar, Ramesh Mendis, Sikandar Raza, and Lahiru Madushanka are just a few of the bowlers the team would be looking to for timely wickets.

Jaffna Kings Team News & Probable Playing XIs

The team’s batting lineup will include Avishka Fernando as the opener, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, and Tom Kohler-Cadmore of England. Veteran Shoaib Malik and captain Thisara Perera will provide the majority of the runs. Mahesh Theekshana, James Fuller, Binura Fernando, Vijayakanth Viyaskanth, Dunith Wellalage, and Thisara Perera are just a few of the bowlers the team will be looking to for big wickets.

Given that some of their star players did not perform well, Jaffna Kings will have gained a lot of confidence from their victory over the Galle Gladiators in the opening game. The Dambulla Aura will be eager to start the game-winning, but we are unsure about the strength of their bowling attack. We anticipate a victory for Jaffna Kings.

Match: Bangladesh vs India, 2nd ODI | India tour of Bangladesh

Date: Wednesday, 7 Dec 2022 

Time: 11:30 (GMT+5.5) / 12:00 (GMT+6)

Format: ODI

Venue: Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka 


BAN vs IND Preview

  • India’s top-order faltered again, which concerns the squad.
  • India’s bowling lacks pace, therefore they may substitute Umran Malik for the team.
  • Another low-scoring game, it will be challenging to get even 250 overall.

 

At the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium on Wednesday afternoon, Bangladesh and India square off in the second ODI of the series. Bangladesh won the series’ first game on Sunday after completing their 187-run total with one wicket and four overs remaining. This game will start at 12:00 local time in Mirpur. 

In the opening game, Bangladesh’s bowlers put up a strong showing by holding India to a score of 186 all out. The bowlers will have a great chance if they can replicate similar results in this match.

India will be eager to make up for the mistakes made in the match on Sunday and will want to perform better with both the bat and the ball. Their team is powerful, and they will be optimistic that they can tie the series at one.


BAN vs IND Weather Report

The second ODI will be played under foggy, cold weather in Dhaka.


BAN vs IND Match Toss Prediction

On this wicket, the team that wins the toss decides who gets to bowl first.


BAN vs IND Pitch Report

The Shere Bangla National Stadium’s pitch is extremely sluggish, as was evident in the first ODI. It is challenging to score freely since the ball continues dipping and frequently adheres to the wicket. For the best results on this surface, fast bowlers must constantly change their pace. Again, bowling here will be fun for spinners.


Bangladesh Team News & Probable Playing XIs

We would be very shocked if the home team made any changes before this game after their outstanding victory in the first ODI of the series. Having performed well in his debut game as captain, Liton Das is eager to take his team to victory over India in a series.

Recent form – W W L L W

India News & Probable Playing XIs

Kuldeep Sen, a right-arm fast bowler, made his international debut on Sunday and dismissed Afif Hossain and Ebadot Hossain. India performed pretty poorly, hence we anticipate them to pick the same team to attempt to tie the series.

Recent form – L NR NR L W

India’s Probable XI

Format: T20

Venue: Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium, Hambantota


Colombo Stars vs Kandy Falcons Preview

  • In the first two seasons of competition, the Kandy Falcons came in last.
  • In the two seasons, the Colombo Stars failed in the semifinal and elimination games, respectively.
  • The four LPL games Colombo Stars have played against Kandy Falcons so far have all been victories for Colombo Stars.

 

Kandy Falcons and Colombo Stars will play at the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium. On Tuesday, December 6, the second match of the 2022 Lanka Premier League begins at 19:30 local time.

For Colombo Stars in the 2021 LPL, it was a case of “can do better.” They placed third in the group stage, but the fourth-ranked Dambulla Giants eliminated them in the Eliminator. We anticipate them to be very competitive in this match since they have done a good job of recruiting since last year.

The Kandy Falcons can only really draw a few positives from the competition last year, and their first objective is to surpass the four points they managed to accumulate throughout the entire campaign in 2021. Colombo Stars defeated them by 58 runs in the final group stage match to end the previous competition.


Colombo Stars vs Kandy Falcons Weather Report

In the second half of the game, dew is anticipated in the humid weather.


Colombo Stars vs Kandy Falcons Match Toss Prediction

In T20 games, chasing is the greatest strategy because neither team is aware of the pitch’s circumstances, hence both teams will be aiming to bat second.


Colombo Stars vs Kandy Falcons Pitch Report

Hambantota is usually a relatively slow pitch that primarily helps the bowlers. If batters can get comfortable on this track, they can benefit.


Colombo Stars Team News & Probable Playing XIs

Veteran all-rounder Angelo Mathews of Sri Lanka will serve as the team’s captain this year for Colombo Stars. Along with T20 Globetrotters Ravi Bopara and Benny Howell, they have seasoned batting players Niroshan Dickwella and Dinesh Chandimal in their batting order. Young players Charith Asalanka and Danajaya Lakshan provide their batting with some firepower and youth. They have a talented group of fast bowlers, including Suranga Lakmal and Kasun Rajitha from their own country, as well as overseas stars Karim Janat, Naveen-Ul-Haq, Romario Shepherd, and Dominic Drakes.

Wanindu Hasaranga, one of Sri Lanka’s best spinners, will be the captain of the Kandy Falcons this year. Najibullah Zadran or Andre Fletcher will have the option of playing as the second opener, with Pathum Nissanka serving as the first opener. As the team’s middle order, Fabian Allen, Kamindu Mendis, Minod Banuka, and Carlos Brathwaite are anticipated to create a solid core.

Jaffna Kings vs Galle Gladiators Preview

  • Thisara Perara, Tom Kohler Cadmore, and Shoaib Malik form the Jaffna Kings’ potent batting order.
  • With Dhananjaya de Silva, James Neesham, and James Fuller in the lineup, Jaffna Kings boast a powerful bowling assault.
  • The Galle Gladiators have added a few fresh players to the group but lack batting firepower.

 

The Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium will host the match between Jaffna Kings and Galle Gladiators. On Tuesday, December 6, the first game of the 2022 Lanka Premier League begins at 15:30 local time.

The 2021 LPL Champions, who also finished first in the group stage, not only won the final the previous season but also had an amazing record of six victories and just two losses. The opposition will be the same as in the final, in which Jaffna Kings won by 23 runs.

On December 23 of last year, Galle Gladiators and Jaffna Kings squared off in the final. Galle Gladiators lost by a score of 23 runs. The Gladiators will be ecstatic at the chance to exact early retribution on the Kings throughout this season.


Jaffna Kings vs Galle Gladiators Weather Report

A 40 to 50 percent chance of rain is forecast, which might cause brief delays. There will always be cloud cover. Around 27 degrees Celsius will be the temperature, and the humidity level will be in the high 70s.


Jaffna Kings vs Galle Gladiators Match Toss Prediction

Three of the four games played here last year were won by the team batting first. Early in the game, the wicket is favorable for batting; as time goes on, it becomes less favorable. Early in the afternoon will be the optimum time to bat on this wicket. The team that wins the toss in this game will probably choose to bat first.

But the Jaffna Kings still have the majority of their winning squad from the previous season, and we are supporting them with both bat and ball to improve and defeat the Galle Gladiators.

Morrisville Samp Army was trounced by four wickets with nine balls remaining in Qualifier 1 on Saturday, continuing the winning streak of the New York Strikers. But if they want to win this match, they will need to be stronger with the bat and the ball.

The 2021 Champions will have the chance to defend their title in this final on Sunday night after Deccan Gladiators won both of their play-off matches on Saturday after placing fourth in the group round. They played the Strikers earlier in the campaign and lost by eight wickets; they will need to perform much better in this final.

New York Strikers vs Deccan Gladiators Match Toss Prediction

The team pursuing the score has triumphed four times in the previous five games. The teams have relished pursuing, and the pitch has been favorable for batting. As a result, none of the two skippers at the toss would have the slightest hesitation about bowling first.

Pooran, who has scored the most runs this season, will try to perform well in the middle of the order with Will Smith and Odean Smith.

We believe that the New York Strikers’ batting, which has been quite reliable, will lead them to victory in this match.

  • While playing for Team Abu Dhabi, Andrew Tye has taken 10 wickets in the last eight league games with an economy rate of 10.

At the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi, Team Abu Dhabi and Morrisville Samp Army will square off. The 2022 Abu Dhabi T10 Third Place Play-Off begins on Sunday, December 3 at 16:00 local time. 

Team Abu Dhabi lost the Saturday Eliminator match to the 2021 Champions Deccan Gladiators by a slim margin of five runs. Being defeated after finishing ahead of the Gladiators in the group stage will have disappointed Team Abu Dhabi. 

After finishing second in their initial group stage of the Abu Dhabi T10, Morrisville Samp Army had a dreadful day on Saturday during the playoffs. They first suffered a four-wicket loss in Qualifier 1, before losing by eight wickets in Qualifier 2. 


Team Abu Dhabi vs Morrisville Samp Army Weather Report

On the day of the game, the sky will be clear and there won’t be a risk of rain. The temperatures will range from 21°C to 31°C at their highest and lowest points.


Team Abu Dhabi vs Morrisville Samp Army Match Toss Prediction

The winning captain typically opts to ball first in this situation because the pitch advantages players in the second inning while chasing the target in the 10-over game.

Team Abu Dhabi Team News & Probable Playing XIs

On Saturday, there weren’t many consistent contributions throughout the innings; only three players scored in double figures, and James Vince led the way with 21. To remain competitive in this game, Team Abu Dhabi will need one of their batters to achieve a higher score.

Morrisville Samp Army News & Probable Playing XIs

Samp Army will compete in the final game of the campaign for third place, and they will need to put on a better performance, particularly with the bat, to defeat their opponents. If the batting order wants to end the season on a high note, they must proceed with their plans and carry them out effectively on the field. In this game, Chamika Karunaratne must demonstrate his talent.

BAN vs IND Match Details

Match: Bangladesh vs India, 1st ODI | India tour of Bangladesh

Date: Sunday, 4 Dec 2022 

Time: 11:30 (GMT+5.5) / 12:00 (GMT+6)

Format: ODI

Venue: Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka 


BAN vs IND Preview

  • The top order of Team India has recently had trouble getting started.
  • In ODIs in 2022, Shreyas Iyer has been in fantastic shape.
  • India has dominated Bangladesh in their last five one-day international matches.

 

The first of a three-match ODI series between Bangladesh and India begins on Sunday afternoon in Mirpur with a day-night match. Bangladesh’s most recent series in this format ended in a 2-1 loss to Zimbabwe. India recently played New Zealand in a series that was hampered by weather. At 12:00 local time, the match begins at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium. 

Despite losing Tamim Iqbal, who has a wealth of experience, Bangladesh still has a strong lineup. They cannot be completely ruled out of pushing India to the limit at home.

After resting them for the most recent trip to New Zealand, India brings back some of their best batsmen for this series. They will be confident of starting this series off on a winning note because their roster includes some seasoned players.


BAN vs IND Weather Report

On the day of the game, Mirpur is forecasted to experience warm, clear weather.


BAN vs IND Match Toss Prediction

59 out of 112 times that chasing teams have won at this location. Therefore, it is likely that the team that wins the toss in this game will bat second.


BAN vs IND Pitch Report

The Shere Bangla National Stadium’s pitch in Dhaka has historically been favorable for batting with some help from spin. It moves somewhat slowly, so playing shots won’t be simple right away.


Bangladesh Team News & Probable Playing XIs

Due to a groin injury, Bangladesh’s ODI skipper Tamim Iqbal is out of the series. Taijul Islam, a slow left-arm orthodox bowler who participated in the most recent ODI match, will also not play. Shakib Al Hasan, an all-rounder, and Liton Das, a seasoned duo who will captain the team, are more than suitable substitutes.

Liton Das (c), Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Najmul Hossain Santo, Anamul Haque, Mahmudullah, Afif Hossain, Shakib Al Hasan, Hasan Mahmud, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Ebadot Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman 


India News & Probable Playing XIs

India’s lineup from their most recent ODI against New Zealand at the end of November will feature at least six alterations. After competing in New Zealand, Shubman Gill, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Yuzvendra Chahal, Arshdeep Singh, and Umran Malik are all absent from this series.

Because Bangladesh has a strong track record in this format over the past 12 months and India will not be at full strength for this series, there will be optimism among the home fans. However, India remains one of the finest ODI teams even without some of their top players, and with a strong batting lineup, we are picking them to win this first g
