B-Love Kandy vs Jaffna Kings Match Pitch Report
No match has been played at Pallekele in the ongoing season. Hence, it is a little tricky to understand how the pitch would behave. Teams should look to the field first after winning the toss.
What to expect:
B-Love Kandy: Wanindu Hasaranga mustn’t let the last game’s performance be on their minds. The batters let the side down in the last game against the Colombo Strikers. They have several matchwinners on the side, and Hasaranga will like to see them do well and earn their first points in this game.
Dinesh Chandimal and Thanuka Dabare struggled at the top, and the pair must deliver the goods in this game. The middle order is good, and they expect runs from Kamindu Mendis, Angelo Mathews, and Ashen Bandara. Hasaranga, Isuru Udana, Sarfaraz Ahmed must add quick runs down the order.
The bowling attack looked good in the last game, and the side will expect tight spells from Mohammad Hasnain and Isuru Udana. Hasaranga and Mujeeb ur Rahman make it a strong spin attack and have an important role. Aamer Jamal, Mendis, and Thanuka Dabare must deliver the goods in the supporting role.
B-Love Kandy Key Players
- Wanindu Hasaranga – Wanindu Hasaranga will have to pull out a staggering performance for his team. Hasaranga is one of the best spinners going around and has taken 197 wickets in T20 matches.
- Mujeeb ur Rahman – Mujeeb ur Rahman will also be key for Kandy. The spinner has created a repo of a T20 specialist and has lived up to the same as well. Mujeeb has taken 217 wickets in T20 matches at an average of 23 and an economy of less than 7.
- Dinesh Chandimal – The experienced batter will be key in the middle order. Chandimal is the third-highest run scorer in LPL with 810 runs to his name.
Probable XI: Fakhar Zaman, Dinesh Chandimal (wk), Kamindu Mendis, Angelo Mathews, Wanindu Hasaranga (c), Ashen Bandara, Asif Ali, Isuru Udana, Mohammad Hasnain, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Dushmantha Chameera
B-Love Kandy Squad: Thanuka Dabare, Navod Paranavithana, Angelo Mathews, Asif Ali, Dinesh Chandimal(w), Suresh Raina, Aamer Jamal, Wanindu Hasaranga(c), Kamindu Mendis, Dushmantha Chameera, Nuwan Pradeep, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Isuru Udana, Lasith Abeyratne, Lahiru Madushanka, Chaturanga de Silva, Ashen Bandara, Mohammad Hasnain, Mohammad Haris, Avishka Tharindu, Malsha Tharupathi, Sahan Arachchige
Jaffna Kings: Jaffna Kings delivered an all-round performance against Colombo Strikers to kick off the season with a 21-run win. Thisara Perera used 7 bowling options as the Kings successfully defended 173 runs.
Earlier in the match, Towhid Hridoy scored 54 off 39 balls at number 4 taking Jaffna Kings to a competitive score on a batting-friendly wicket. Opening batsman Rahmanullah Gurbaz also got off to a good start with a quickfire 22 off 11 balls inning.
While there are some promising batters in this lineup, the opposition definitely looks stronger in this department. Charith Asalanka at number 3 is another key batter in the Kings’ lineup. However, the rest of them aren’t as experienced whether on the international stage or in franchise cricket. Nevertheless, we expect new match-winners to rise given the nature of this venue.
The biggest strength of the Jaffna Kings seems to be their bowling attack. There is great variety and like the opposition features star players in the batting department, Kings have them in the bowling attack. Mahesh Theekshana will be one to watch out for on this side. In addition, there is Hardus Viljoen, Dilshan Madhushanka, and the skipper Thisara Perera himself.
The 21-year-old Vijaykanth Viyaskanth, a right-arm leg break bowler, picked 2 for 17 from his 4 overs. He has definitely caught everyone’s attention and will be a key player in this game.
Jaffna Kings Key Players
- Rahmanullah Gurbaz – Rahmanullah Gurbaz will be a key player for the side. He is tournament’s one of the best performer with over 600 runs. Gurbaz comes into the tournament on the back of a top run in the Zim Afro T10 League.
- Thisara Perera – Thisara Perera has scored 550 runs in the LPL and is the tournament’s sixth-highest run-scorer. He is also handy with the ball and has played a significant role in leading the team to three title wins.
- Mahesh Theekshana – The ace spinner is one of the best in the world and has experience featuring in multiple franchise leagues. Theekshana is the fourth-highest wicket-taker of the tournament with 26 scalps.
Probable XI: Rahmanullah Gurbaz(w), Charith Asalanka, Towhid Hridoy, Priyamal Perera, David Miller, Thisara Perera(c), Hardus Viljoen, Dunith Wellalage, Mahesh Theekshana, Vijayakanth Viyaskanth, Dilshan Madushanka
Jaffna Kings Squad: Charith Asalanka, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Asela Gunaratne, Shoaib Malik, Nishan Madushka(w), Thisara Perera(c), Asitha Fernando, Vijayakanth Viyaskanth, Zaman Khan, Dilshan Madushanka, Mahesh Theekshana, David Miller, Chris Lynn, Hardus Viljoen, Dunith Wellalage, Nuwan Thushara, Ashan Randika, Theesan Vithushan, Pathum Kumara, Ratnarajah Thenurathan, Asanka Manoj
