Dambulla Aura vs Jaffna Kings Match Pitch Report
The pitch is expected to offer more assistance to the bowlers in the second innings. The average score on the ground in the first innings (143) is higher than in the second innings (128). The team bowling first wins around 57% of matches on this ground.
The last T20I at the venue was played between Sri Lanka and Australia on June 8, 2022. Australia won the encounter chasing down 124 comfortably, with 3 wickets and 13 balls to spare.
What to expect:
Dambulla Aura: Dambulla lost in the Super Over after they tied the scores while chasing a 181-run target against Galle Titans in their opening match. There were many positives to take from that game for Dambulla Aura.
Though Shahnawaz Dahai and others were expensive in the death overs, the skipper will be proud of the start the bowlers gave. Moreover, the recent games have shown it will not be easy for the bowlers on this ground. The small dimensions here leave very less room for error for the bowlers. The Pacers need to get the yorker right on the money or the ball will be dispatched out of the park.
The deep batting lineup and the fact that the lower middle order stepped up the occasion is a major positive for Dambulla Aura. Hayden Kerr scored a quickfire 20 off 10 and would have made a big difference to the run chase if he stayed on the crease longer.
While openers Avishka Fernarno and Kusal Mendis were out cheaply, there are the big guns in this side and will ones to watch out for. The middle order has the experienced Dhananjaya de Silva and Kusal Perera.
And with Alex Ross at number 6 and Samarawickrama showing promise at number 5, Mendis will be a happy skipper. All he needs is to find his form and get his bowlers to find their rhythm.
Dambulla Aura Key Players
- Kusal Perera- Kusal Perera has scored 305 runs in 15 matches of the tournament at an average of 20. The numbers are on the lower side but Perera is one of the most talented batters in Sri Lanka cricket and it will be a great opportunity for him to improve his stats in the tournament.
- Avishka Fernando- Avishka Fernando came into the limelight after a staggering show in the Lanka Premier League. He is the tournament’s highest run scorer with 926 runs at an average of 26. He is expected to play a key role for Dambulla Aura in the season.
- Noor Ahmed- Afghanistan’s Noor Ahmed will be a threat on the low and slow turning tracks of Sri Lanka. Noor Ahmed recently played in T10 League and emerged as one of the top performers.
Probable XI: Kusal Mendis(w/c), Avishka Fernando, Kusal Perera, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Dhananjaya de Silva, Alex Ross, Hayden Kerr, Binura Fernando, Shahnawaz Dahani, Praveen Jayawickrama
Dambulla Aura Squad: Avishka Fernando, Kusal Perera, Kusal Mendis(w/c), Sadeera Samarawickrama, Ravindu Fernando, Janith Liyanage, Dhananjaya de Silva, Pramod Madushan, Binura Fernando, Lungi Ngidi, Treveen Mathew, Wanuja Sahan, Praveen Jayawickrama, Noor Ahmad, Shahnawaz Dahani, Sachitha Jayathilake, Lakshan Edirisinghe, Jehan Daniel, Alex Ross, Hayden Kerr, Dushan Hemantha, Manelker De Silva, Kavidu Lakshan, Matthew Wade

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.
