KW Playing 11: The Kandy Warriors will meet the Dambulla Giants in their opening fixture of the Lanka Premier League 2021 at Colombo. In the last season, they could not seal the place in playoffs with 2 wins in 8 matches, and would look to improve their performances in this edition.
Although the Kandy Warriors could not perform well in the last season, they are expected to do quite good this time around. This is due to the power packed batting line up of the team. Some of the players like Lewis, Perera, Powell are coming into this tournament after blistering performances in the Abu Dhabi T10, while Asalanka has been impressive in the international cricket.
In the bowling unit, the Sri Lankan bowlers Lahiru Kumara and Binura Fernando played the T20 World Cup 2021. While Mohammad Irfan and Al Amin Hossain have done well in the T20 format.
