KT vs CK Lanka Premier League Fantasy Prediction: Kandy Tuskers vs Colombo Kings – 5 December 2020 (Hambantota)
Kandy Tuskers will take on Colombo Kings in the League Match of LPL 2020, aka Lanka Premier League which, will be played at the Mahinda Rajapaksa Stadium in Hambantota. The Island nation finally got its own T20 league and, some big names will be on the cards.
The Kings have won three of their four games whereas, the Tuskers have just won a single game out of their five. Both teams have some brilliant players in their ranks, but the Tuskers are not in good form. This should be an exciting game to watch out for if the Tuskers can play according to their potential.
Pitch Report – This pitch is brilliant for batting and, we can expect a high-scoring game. However, spinners and slow-bowlers are going to have some advantage.
