Dambulla Aura vs Galle Titans, 14th Match preview:

Dambulla Aura:

Aura is in motion as they have won back-to-back games in the latest LPL 2023. They are currently holding the second place on the points table. So, a winning match here will see them rush to the top position in the table.

The team won their last match by 9 runs. They batted first in that match and put up 134 runs in 20 overs. Kusal Perera scored 41 runs and became the top scorer for the team. He was partnered by Sadeera Samarawickrama who made 30 runs playing 25 balls. Their partnership ensured to reach a defendable position.

In the second innings, the Dambulla bowlers were brilliant as they defended the opponent’s batter to reach the target. Hasan Ali was the top of the bowlers. He took 3 wickets just for 20 runs. Binura Fernando was fabulous as well picking up 1 wicket while consuming only 8 runs in the 4 overs.

Galle Titans:

On the other hand, Galle Titans are struggling with form as they have lost the last three games. Now, they are at the bottom of the table with just 2 wins and 5 matches. They will badly look for a win here to get their motion back.

Titans lost their previous match by a huge margin of 89 runs. They bowled first in the match and consumed 203 runs in 20 overs. The bowlers were able to pick up just 5 wickets. Lahiru Samarakoon gave the top bowling performance in the team and picked up 2 wickets in his 4 overs.

Miserably, the batting failed as all the batters collapsed. They could not even catch momentum for the team. They were all dismissed for 114 runs. Once again, Lahiru Samarakoon was the only well-performed batter scoring 36 runs in 25 balls.
