LPL 2020: The first match of the inaugural edition of Lanka Premier League will be played between Colombo Kings and Kandy Tuskers on Wednesday, November 25 at the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium in Hambantota.
While Colombo Kings under the leadership of former Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews is all set to shower spark in the first match of the LPL 2020, Kandy Tuskers, on the other hand after suffering several setbacks in the last few weeks still have to finalise their captain for the tournament.
While Chris Gayle pulled out because a commercial understanding couldn’t be reached with the stakeholders, World Cup-winning English fast bowler Liam Plunkett ruled out owing to international commitments. Whereas, Pakistan pacer Sohail Tanvir too had to be replaced after he tested positive for COVID-19. However, the experience of Brendan Taylor, Irfan Pathan, Nuwan Pradeep, Dale Steyn, and Munaf Patel might increase some chances for them.
- Match: Colombo Kings vs Kandy Tuskers, Match 1
- Date: 26th November 2020
- Time: 7:30 PM (IST) / 14:00 (GMT) / 6:00 PM (Local Time)

It’s expected to be a pleasant evening with temperature hovering around 27 to 28 degree Celsius.
There is a lot of uncertainty about the pitch as no cricket has been played on the ground of late. Generally, it’s a good batting wicket but we’ll have to wait for the match to start to see how it actually behaves.
