Jaffna Stallions Vs Dambulla Viikings, LPL 2020
Jaffna Stallions will take on Dambulla Viikings in the 15th match of the Sri Lanka Premier League. The match will be played on the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium and is scheduled to begin at 8.00 PM local time.
With half the tournament done, the equation for the semi final is pretty clear with Jaffna Stallions, Dambulla Vikings and Colombo Kings already through.
Jaffna Stallions suffered their first defeat of the tournament against Colombo Kings in the last match. A loss won't hurt much but Jaffna Stallions have much bigger worries for the upcoming matches.
Their batting will be their biggest concern that was riding on Thisara Perera and Avishka Fernando. A failure for the duo saw them crumble in the previous match. Jaffna surely won't want this in the knockouts. It's big time that players like Shoaib Malik, Minod Bhanuka, and Dhananjaya de Silva start performing.
Jaffna Stallions rested Dianne Olivier in the previous match, probably because they want to test their bench strength. They might try a few players in this match too. Kyle Abbott, Thisara Perera, Wanindu Hasaranga and Vijaykanth Viyaskanth are all decent bowlers.
Dambulla Viikings have peaked at the right time. They'll be delighted to see the runs flowing from the bats of Upul Tharanga, Niroshan Dickwella and Dasun Shanaka. Samit Patel has also batted well in few games.
In the bowling department, Anwar Ali, Kasun Rajitha, and Dasun Shanaka and all rounders are bowling pretty well. We expect both teams to continue experimenting with their team combinations as both have already qualified for the knockouts. Jaffna Stallions have a slightly better set of bowlers and are favourites to win the match
