KT vs CK Dream11 Team News:
- On papers, Kandy Tuskers are one of the strongest sides but the team has somehow failed to win matches. With time running out, this is a very important contest for the team.
- Naveen-ul-Haq has been the stand out performer for the team with the ball. However, he got no support from the rest of the bowlers who have leaked runs.
- One of the biggest issues for the team is that Kusal Mendis is struggling to convert his starts to big scores. He has 30+ scores in almost all the matches but has crossed the fifty-mark only once.
- Although the team’s bowling is under-par, the batsmen have done well to chase down tough targets in the tournament so far.
- Dinesh Chandimal has been the top performer for the team and is striking very well at the moment.
- Isuru Udana is the only bowler who has done well for the team and he has also contributed with the bat. He has a strike-rate close to 170 here.
