Squad Analysis:

Jaffna Kings- The team has performed brilliantly in the three matches of the tournament and they are favourites to win this match as well. The bowling has been phenomenal. They not only defended 137 against Galle in the first match, but also restricted Dambulla for 121 in second and nearly pulled off a shocker against Kandy in the third match.

Avishka Fernando and Sadira Samarawickrama are the only players to score the fifty for the side. De Silva and Shoaib Malik have also stepped up with the bat. Dunith Wellalage has been brilliant with the ball and bat. Maheeesh Theekshana, James Fuller and Vijayakanth’s trio picked up wickets regularly and kept scoring rate down.

Dambulla Giants- The Giants have big names like Sikandar Raza, Dasun Shanaka and Bhanuka Rajapaksa, but they have disappointed with their performance. The team lost both the matches in LPL 2022. They failed to perform as a unit. Jordon Cox played a beautiful innings in the first match but others failed to deliver. Van Meekeren have to step up with the bat and ball. Tom Abell would like to continue his form.

The bowlers have to do better, Lahiru although picked four wickets but he turned out to be the most expensive one.

Head to head- Seven matches have been played between these two teams so far, Jaffna Kings have won Six, and one match ended without result.

Live Streaming Details- The Sri Lankan fans can watch the match on ADA Derana and Ten Sports. However Ten Cricket, Sony TV and Sony Liv will broadcast in India.
