Dambulla Giants Batters 2022
Dambulla Giants have a good blend of players with different batting styles. Their major batting guns include Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Haider Ali and D’Arcy Short. All 3 of them have played plenty of T20 cricket worldwide, and especially with Rajapaksa’s recent form, he will be the key for Dambulla in this event.
David Warner is equally dangerous at the top of the order and has been in top batting form of late. Haider Ali has yet to play up to his potential, but he can dismantle any opposition with his batting style at the top.
Tim Seifert, Sacha de Alwis and Lasith Croospulle are the other choices with the bat in this lineup. Seifert has a phenomenal T20 record with over 3000 runs, while Sacha and Croospulle are good potential talents.
