LPL 2020 : Salman Khan family’s owned team Kandy Tusker suffers 2nd straight defeat

LPL 2020 Dambulla Viking beat Kandy Tuskers : Salman Khan family’s owned team Kandy Tuskers has lost their second consecutive game in the Lanka Premier League. Even before the bowl was bowled in the LPL 2020, Tuskers were in trouble as their star players Chris Gayle, Lasith Malinga decided to withdraw from the league. Those troubles are continuing as the league action is in full swing now. Tuskers this time lost a close encounter to the opponents. Viking held their nerves to register a four-run win on the D/L method against Tuskers on Saturday. 
Set a target of 196, the Tuskers lost Kusal Perera early in the chase but Rahmanullah Gurbaz carried on where he had left off from the previous game, blazing four boundaries and six in an 18-ball 30. When the rains came in with Kandy Tuskers at 84/3 after 9.4 overs, they fell short on DL method.

While the rollercoaster nature of impending rain and DLS permutations provided much of the excitement towards the end, it was the 127-run fourth-wicket stand between Viiking Captain  Dasum Shanak and Samit Patel’s that was the highlight of the game. While the Viiking looked like they would struggle to make 150, the pair took it upon themselves to put up a competitive, and eventually match-winning, total.
