After a careful analysis of the past data and stats, we have picked the top two team betting tips from the CS vs KW head-to-head contest. Have a look!
Colombo Stars will be walking into this match as our clear favourites and here’s why. With four solitary victories and as many losses from eight matches, Colombo secured the third spot in the ladder last season. They got 8 points besides their name with a net run rate of about -0.571. Colombo made it to the playoffs but their journey was cut short by Dambulla Giants in the Eliminator. Kandy Warriors, on the other hand, failed to make it to the playoffs for the past two seasons. They finished at the bottom of the table for two successive seasons, picking up two victories in eight games. Across two seasons of the Lanka Premier League, these two sides have crossed paths on four different occasions in the past with Colombo Stars picking up victories in all the four matches. Colombo got three wins to their bags in their last five games while Kandy Warriors bagged two wins. Historically, Colombo have always dominated against Kandy Warriors and we expect them to showcase a similar performance in their opening game of the season. Wicket-keeper Dinesh Chandimal & all-rounder Angelo Matthews are the two most important batting prospects in Colombo Stars’ side. Chandimal was the leading run-getter for his side last season with 277 runs from 9 innings. He was followed by skipper Angelo Matthews who hammered 191 from 5 games. Pacer Dushmantha Chameera & leg-spinner Seekkuge Prasanna were the top two wicket-takers for CS last season. The two of them shared 26 wickets between them. Considering all this, we have backed Colombo Stars to come out victorious in this game. To capitalise on this, grab the odds of 1.66 offered by 1XBET in Colombo Stars’ favour from the CS vs KW head-to-head encounter.
Colombo Stars will kick things off in the brand new season of LPL as they face Kandy Warriors in their opening game of the season. Colombo have a fantastic record against this side and have never lost against them in four matches. Colombo Stars posted 20, 9, 14 & 21 fours in their last four head-to-head clashes vs Kandy Warriors. This totals to 64 fours from four games averaging at 16.00 fours per game. Speaking of Kandy Warriors, they managed to hit a total of 52 fours across four games vs Colombo. This takes their average to 13.00 fours per game, which is way lower than what CS got. In those four matches, CS managed to hit more match fours than KW on two out of four occasions. In the last five matches, CS struck 13, 20, 7, 9 & 16 fours. This sums up to 65 fours from five matches averaging at 13.00 fours per game. Kandy Warriors, on the other hand, averaged just 9.20 fours per game, if we consider their last five matches. Colombo have a number of big hitters in their squad including the likes of Dinesh Chandimal, Dhananjaya de Silva & Tom Bantom who smashed 22, 18 & 15 fours respectively. Therefore, it would be fair to place your bet on Colombo Stars to hit the most match fours in this forthcoming contest. Head over to 1XBET and place your bet on Colombo at odds of 1.78 from the CS vs KW head-to-head contest.
