Dambulla Viiking vs Jaffna Stallions,  LPL 2020

Jaffna Stallions will take on Dambulla Viikings in the semi final 2 of the Sri Lanka Premier League. The match will be played at the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium and is scheduled to begin at 7.00 PM local time.

What an upset it was in the first semi final where Colombo Kings, even after playing so well failed to reach the finals. They went down to Galle Gladiators who look a real force now after starting the tournament on a dull note.

The second semi final also promises to be a cracker of a encounter. Dambulla Viikings had a decent tournament but they were far from convincing. Their batting looked sluggish, their bowling on paper wasn't that strong but even then, they managed to pull off 5 wins in 8 matches which is commendable. 

Their wins were mostly results of the individual brilliance of Samit Patel, Dasun Shanaka and Niroshan Dickwella. Sami Ullah Shinwari  also played well in couple of games. 

In such high pressure game, all of them have to deliver collective performances to give them a fair chance. When it comes to the bowlers, they don't seem to have a single bowler who can win them a match on his own, which is a worry. Their only option to win this match is to bat well, and bat really well. 

For Jaffna Stallions, they've been outstanding and will  go in this match as big favourites. They've done everything that a top class team should do in a multi team competition. Even though they've lost their last 3 completed games, they were among the best teams of the competition. 

All rounders Wanindu Hasaranga and Thisara Perera has been outstanding for them while the batting have been doing well with Avishka Fernando and Shoaib Malik.

There are players who've not delivered as per the expectations and Jaffna Stallions will hope that they can come good in this crunch game. The bowling also looks very good in Qais Ahmed and Wanindu Hasaranga as two of their main bowlers. Isuru Udana, Dusmantha Chameera and plenty of all rounders will make it very difficult for Dambulla Viikings.

Overall, Jaffna Stallions look a far more stable side than Dambulla Viikings but Viikings have shown in the league stages that you cannot take them lightly as they have the capability to surprise the opposition.

DVK vs JST Toss Prediction

The slowness of the pitch won't make it easy to big shots. Spinner will have a role to play.

Pitch Condition

Its not a bad wicket to bat but it's as good as it was at the start of the tournament. But that's expected considering the amount of cricket played here.

Dambulla Viiking Team News & Playing 11

DVK Team News

Dambulla Viikings tweaked their batting order by dropping Paul Stirling and pushing Samit Patel as an opener. We think it was a very wise move and they're going to do the same for this match as well. They also rested Kasun Rajitha who can be expected to be back in the team.

DVK Key Players

  • Niroshan Dickwella - Niroshan Dickwella has found his form just at the right time. The last few innings has been really decent for him and he can be backed to continue his good run.
  • Dasun Shanaka - Dasun Shanaka has been terrific both with the bat and ball. He has consistently got runs for Dambulla in addition to some fine bowling performance. 
  • Samiullah Shinwari - Coming down the order, Samiullah Shinwari can be very handy for Dambulla. He already has played a match winning knock for them and Dambulla will hope that he can continue his form.

DVK Team Form

Dambulla Viikings failed to defend 203 in their last match against Colombo Kings.

Dambulla Viiking Predicted Playing 11

Niroshan Dickwella (WK) Upul Tharanga, Angelo Perera, Dasun Shanaka(C),  Samit Patel, Samiullah Shinwari, Milinda Pushpakumara, Sadeera Samawickrama, Kasun Rajitha, Anwar Ali, Lahiru Kumara

Jaffna Stallions Team News & Playing 11

JST Team News

Jaffna Stallions rested Avishka Fernando, Minod Bhanuka and Usman Shinwari in their last game. All of them must be back for this knock out game. 

JST Key Players

  • Avishka Fernando - Avishka Fernando has been Jaffna's best batsmen. Jaffna Stallions will need a big inning from him as other batsmen have been decent but not very consistent.
  • Thisara Perera - Thisara Perera has been off an on in the tournament. He's delivered some brilliant match performance in some games but have been below par in other. He's the experience of playing such big matches and he'll be looking to make the most of that and take his team one step closer to the title. 
  • Usman Shinwari - Usman Shinwari has been Jaffna Stallions best bowler. He's a quality bowler and can seriously trouble the Dambulla Viikings batsmen.

Jaffna Stallions have lost their last three completed games

Dambulla Viiking vs Jaffna Stallions Betting Odds

Dambulla Viikings are getting the favourites tags on betting sites,  getting odds of 1.72 on Bet365. Jaffna Stallions on the other hand have odds of 2.10. On 10Cric the odds are 1.68 for Dambulla and 2.05 for Jaffna.

Dambulla Viiking vs Jaffna Stallions Prediction

Both teams were pretty good in the league stages but very different from each other. Dambulla Viikings relied more on individual performance while Jaffna Stallion's success was a result of a combined team effort. The over reliance on individual players can be very risky in a crunch game like this. Jaffna Stallions might have lost their last three matches but they look a far more stable unit than Dambulla Viikings and are favourites for this match.

Final Verdict

Jaffna Stallions to beat Dambulla Viikings at 2.10 on Bet365 and 2.05 on 10Cric

DVK vs JST Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket-keeper

    Niroshan Dickwella at 9.5 is a top class pick. He's been very good for Dambulla Viikings, especially in the last few innings.

  • Batsmen

    Upul Tharanga at 9.0, Avishka Fernando at 10.0 are best options from this section. Tharanga and Fernando brings in lots of experience which is very handy in knockouts. Also, they been decent in the last few games with the bat as well. You can also select Samiullah Shinwari as he can be very dangerous down the order.

  • All-rounders

    Wanindu Hasaranga at 9.5, Dasun Shanaka 9.5 and Thisara Perera at 10.5 will provide depth to your team. Hasaranga is the leading wicket taker of the tournament while Dasun Shanaka has done well with both bat and the ball. Thisara Perera can be a match winner on his day.

  • Bowlers

    Usman Shinwari at 8.5, Dianne Olivier at 8.5, Milinda Pushpakumara at 8.5 and Binura Fernando at 8.5 are good options. Shinwari and Olivier are two top class bowlers that are in some terrific form. Milinda Pushpakumara and Binura Fernando can be opted to manage the credits. 

  • Captain/Vice-captain

    Wanindu Hasaranga is in stellar form and can be backed as a skipper while Dasun Shanaka is our preferred choice for vice captain.

DVK vs JST Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Avishka Fernando, Upul Tharanga, Sami Ullah Shinwari

  • All Rounder:Thisara Perera, Wanindu Hasaranga(C), Dasun Shanaka(VC)

  • Wicket Keeper:Niroshan Dickwella

  • Bowler:Usman Shinwari, Dianne Olivier, Milinda Pushpakumara, Binura Fernando
