Kandy Tuskers Vs Jaffna Stallions, LPL 2020

Kandy Tuskers will take on Jaffna Stallions in the 13th match of the Sri Lanka Premier League. The match will be played on the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium and is scheduled to begin at 3:30 PM local time.

Galle Gladiators's victory over Colombo Kings have spooked life in the dull qualification scenarios of the Sri Lanka premier league. Not that the top three teams will be concerned, but there'll be a tussle between Kandy Tuskers and Galle Gladiators to occupy which will add to the excitement of the tournament. 

Kandy Tuskers came into the tournament with great expectations but their performance have been totally undeserving of the title. They had a stellar batting line up but all of none of the batsmen took the responsibility of getting his team to a decent total. There has been odd good performances from Kusal Perera and Rahman Ullah Gurbaz but as a batting unit, they're a big failure and it’s evident from their status in the points table. While the batting looked good on paper, the bowling was always a cause of concern. Lack of wicket taking options make them a soft target for the opposition. Coming this Wednesday, if  Kandy  bowls well, they do have the batting to give their opponent a run for their money. 

Jaffna Stallions on the other hand has been scintillating in the tournament with 4 wins in 6 games. Jaffna's stellar show has been a result of some very good performances from Avishka Fernando, Minod Bhanuka and Thisara Perera in the batting department. Players like Johnson Charles and Shoaib Malik had a disappointing tournament but they can be match winners on their day. Jaffna Stallions have probably the best attack in the competition in Usman Shinwari, Dianne Olivier, Suranga Lakmal and Wanindu Hasaranga. The kind of team they have, they'll fancy their chances against Kandy Tuskers.

It’s a crucial game for Kandy Tuskers as a win will get them close to that last semi finalists spot. They had a miserable outing against Colombo Kings and might change a few players here and there to get the balance right. However, the core of the team is expected to be the same. 

KDT Key Players

  • Kushal Perera - Kusal Perera has not been at his best but he’s a batsmen capable of changing the fortunes of his team. Kandy will need him to fire against Jaffna Stallions.
  • Rahman Ullah Gurbaz - Rahman Ullah Gurbaz has got plenty of starts but hasn’t converted it to a big score. Kandy would hope for  his prolonged stay at the crease as he can be very destructive.
  • Kusal Mendis - Kusal Mendis is one of the most experienced batsmen of this tram and would want to deliver in this crunch game
