COL vs KAN Match Prediction Tips | Who Will Win Today Match

Pallekele International Cricket Stadium, Pallekele, August 29 at 07:00 PM IST

The second match of the season at Pallekele will see Dinesh Chandimal’s Colombo taking on Dasun Shanaka’s Kandy. Colombo are yet to lose a game in this competition and are rightly standing tall at the top of the ladder with 8 points to their name and a net run rate in excess of 1.70.

Kandy, on the other hand, have nothing to talk about their dismal campaign this year as they are the only team to not to win a single game so far in the competition. They have clearly missed the services of regular skipper Angelo Mathews who did not feature in a single game and the tons of experience he could have passed to the youngsters around him was clearly missing.

With this being the second last game for both the teams, Colombo will look to impersonate their tabletop position with a win here while Kandy who have nothing to lose and are already out of the contention of featuring in the finals will look to win both their remaining games for the sake of pride.

Venue Stats (T20Is): T20Is played – 17, Average 1st innings total – 169, Average 2nd innings total – 147, Highest total – 263/3, Lowest total – 116/10
