Dambulla Aura is all set to take on the Colombo Stars in Match 5 of the Lanka Premier League 2022 at the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium in Hambantota. The Colombo Stars suffered a massive defeat at the hands of Kandy Falcons in their previous fixture and it had a big effect on their net run-rate. Wanindu Hasaranga’s first hattrick in LPL led to a trashing loss for the Colombo Kings.
On the other hand, the Dambulla Aura are in action against the Jaffna Kings before the upcoming fixture against Colombo Kings. The humiliating defeat of the Colombo Kings in the previous game is likely to have a decisive advantage as a confidence booster for the Dambulla Aura.

Probable Best Performers from DA vs CS
Probable best batter: Jordan Cox
Jordan Cox was quite aggressive for the Dambulla Aura at the top in the game against Jaffna Kings and set a good platform for his side. The wicketkeeper-batter hit four sixes and three fours in his 22-ball 43 at a strike rate of 195.45. He has got the goods to play the impactful innings and Dambulla Aura will be looking up to him for another knock.
Probable best bowler: Sikandar Raza
Sikandar Raza did not have much impact with the bat in the previous game, however, he is a match winner with the ball. His mystery spin was effective throughout the recent T20 World Cup 2022 against the best of opponents. The 36-year-old will be looking to catch on to his excellent form in the year and bowl a good spell.
