Colombo Strikers 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:
Colombo Strikers: Colombo strikers were unable to chase down a massive total of 193 runs to lose by a close margin of 10 runs. Nuwaindo Fernando (56 runs) and Babar Azam (41 runs) were superb with the bat while Niroshan Dickwella and Chamika Karunaratne played attacking cameos at either end of the innings.
Their bowlers gave away 192 runs in their 20 overs. Naseem Shah (2/21) and Matheesha Pathirana (3/31) bowled well in the match and took regular wickets. The spin department is their biggest worry with their trio of Jeffrey Vandersay, Dananjaya Lakshan, and Mohammad Nawaz giving away 84 runs in their combined 8 overs taking no wickets.
Colombo Strikers Key Players
- Niroshan Dickwella – Niroshan Dickwella led from the front and kept Strikers in the hunt in a tall chase. The southpaw scored a sublime half-century and put the team in a strong position before his wicket triggered a collapse and the team lost its way.
- Babar Azam – Babar Azam did get out early in the opening clash but dare you to doubt his abilities with the bat. Babar will be hungry to get back on the field and play a good knock for his team.
- Naseem Shah – Naseem Shah started well with the new ball and got some decent movement. Wickets with the new ball are a possibility and Naseem will be looking to exploit the fresh conditions and get a few early wickets for his team.
Probable XI: Niroshan Dickwella(w/c), Babar Azam, Pathum Nissanka, Nuwanidu Fernando, Dhananjaya Lakshan, Mohammad Nawaz, Chamika Karunaratne, Ramesh Mendis, Naseem Shah, Matheesha Pathirana, Jeffrey Vandersay
Colombo Strikers Squad: Babar Azam, Pathum Nissanka, Niroshan Dickwella(w/c), Nuwanidu Fernando, Yashodha Lanka, Chamika Karunaratne, Ramesh Mendis, Mohammad Nawaz, Naseem Shah, Matheesha Pathirana, Lakshan Sandakan, Wahab Riaz, Angelo Perera, Jeffrey Vandersay, Iftikhar Ahmed, Dhananjaya Lakshan, Nipun Dhananjaya, Kavishka Anjula, Shashika Dulshan, Lorcan Tucker, Ahan Wickramasinghe, Lahiru Udara, Movin Subasingha, Eshan Malinga
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
Colombo Strikers vs Jaffna Kings Match Winner
Colombo Strikers vs Jaffna Kings Match Prediction
Galle has a 4-3 head-to-head record against Kandy. Kandy is surging in confidence after registering two back-to-back wins. Meanwhile, Galle’s charge has been halted a little after suffering two consecutive losses. Though they continue to be a force to be reckoned with, their success hinges on the batting lineup’s ability to function as a cohesive unit, rather than depending on just a few standout players.
Perhaps they would be better served if captain Dasun Shanaka promotes himself to the middle-order. Kandy, meanwhile, is firing on all cylinders and would be eager to continue their winning streak. That said, we still believe that Galle is the better of the two sides and will come out shining.
We expect Galle Titans to win this match.

Colombo Strikers vs Jaffna Kings Match Both Team Top Batsmen
Babar Azam has been consistent scoring 59 and 41 in the last two games so he will be key for Colombo. Niroshan Dickwella and Nuwanidu Fernando have also scored 50s for the team, but they need to be consistent.
David Miller, a dominant force in T20 cricket, is an asset every team desires, given his exceptional finishing skills. The hard-hitting southpaw has amassed an impressive 9,000+ runs in the format, boasting a stunning strike rate of 139.25, accompanied by four centuries and forty-four half-centuries. We are backing him to do well this season.

Matheesha Pathirana has been brilliant and has taken six wickets in the last two games. Naseem Shah has also bowled well, taking five wickets. Expectations will also be high from Jeff Vandersay.
Former Sri Lanka U19 captain Dunith Wellalage, graceful left-handed batsman Charith Asalanka, and seasoned Pakistani all-rounder Shoaib Malik were all acquired in the auction. Zaman Khan, Chris Lynn, and Hardus Viljoen were among their foreign signings.
