The 14th game of the Lanka Premier League sees Colombo Stars (CS) take on Dambulla Aura (DG) at Pallekele International Cricket Stadium on December 14. With zero wins so far in the tournament, Dasun Shanaka-led Dambulla Aura is currently under a lot of pressure and so is the Stars, who managed to win just one of their first four games.
After a poor start to the season, both teams will be desperate for a win and stay alive in the race. When these two sides met earlier in the season, Colombo Stars emerged victorious after a very close encounter and something similar will be expected this time as well.
Colombo Stars vs Dambulla Aura, Match 14, Lanka Premier League 2022
Location: Pallekele International Cricket Stadium, Pallekele
Date Time: Dec. 14, 7:30 p.m. IST
Broadcast and live streaming: Sony Sports network and SonyLIV
Pallekele has been a batter’s paradise so far. The ball comes to the bat nicely as the bowlers often have trouble picking up wickets. Batting first after winning the coin toss is ideal and anything over 160 is a good score to defend.

Probable Best Hitter: Niroshan Dickwella
Niroshan Dickwella, 29, has scored 125 points from four games so far in the tournament. The opener is currently one of the leading run scorers of the Lanka Premier League. He was absolutely phenomenal against Dambulla Aura in the previous game and will try to dominate the bowlers again.
Probably best bowler: Lahiru Kumara
25-year-old Lahiru Kumara was sensational in the tournament. In three matches to date, the pacemaker took six wickets at an economy rate of 10.81. Though his economy is high, he is expected to deliver the crucial breakthroughs to his team.
