CS vs BLK: Team Previews

Colombo Strikers

Colombo Strikers registered just two wins from their first five fixtures of the season. Yet to win two games in a row at any point this tournament, their uneven campaign has been marred with inconsistencies and failure to come up on top in clutch situations. Strikers’ only wins this year came against B-Love Kandy, in their previous meeting, and against cellar-dwellers Galle Titans later in the tournament.

B-Love Kandy

B-Love Kandy, after losing their first two games of the season, launched a three-match winning streak to jump to number two on the LPL 2023 points table. They defeated table-toppers Dambulla Aura, defending champions Jaffna Kings and a struggling Galle Titans’ unit in three successive games to strengthen themselves for a potential top two finish in the league stage.
