Probable Best Performers from KF vs CS
Probable best batter: Andre Fletcher
The Caribbean wicketkeeper-batter has been in fine touch with the bat as he has got the vital runs for the side. He will look to construct an important knock in the forthcoming match and then explode to play out a long innings.
Probable best bowler: Kasun Rajitha
The pacer has been in terrific form as he scalped a fifer (5/22) against Dambulla Aura. He along with Wanindu Hasaranga could prove to be impactful for their respective sides. Rajitha has the potential to restrict the rival side from scoring big and can hand breakthroughs as he did in the previous encounter.
