The Sri Lankan domestic four teams Super Provincial One-day tournament will kick-start from April 4th. It is one of the premier domestic one-day tournament played in Sri Lanka which will comprise Galle, Dambulla, Kandy and Colombo.
The first match of the tournament will witness a riveting encounter between Colombo and Dambulla at the Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium om Dambulla. Colombo were the runners-up of last year as they lost the finals to Galle by 75 runs. This year they will look to go one step ahead and claim their hands on the coveted title.
Dambulla, on the other hand, finished third in the tournament with 12 points to their name. They were able to win 2 out of the six encounters they played against Kandy by 5 wickets and against Colombo by 6 wickets. Their performance last year was not up to the mark and this year under a new leader in Angelo Mathews, they will look to achieve the heights they couldn’t last time around.

The runners-up of the last season Colombo will be looking to inch one step closer to the trophy this time around, and with some big names like Dinesh Chandimal, the ever so reliable Upul Tharanga, all-rounders Shehan Jayasuriya and Sekkuge Prasanna, this team definitely has the mettle to make it big.
Dambulla did not had a good show last year as they finished 3rd on the points table. They will look to turn around their fortunes this time around under the supreme leadership of Angelo Mathews and some defiant names in Danushka Gunathilaka, Isuru Udana, Dasun Shanaka, Vishwa Fernando and Lakshan Sandakan.
