  • 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.
