Galle Titans 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:
Galle Titans: It was an exciting start to the campaign for Dasun Shanaka’s side. They won the last game against the Dambulla Aura in the Super Over. While Shanaka will be proud of how his side handled pressure in the dying stages, he would like to see a better show from his bowlers in this game. They lost both games against B-Love Kandy last year and shall look to perform better.
Shevon Daniel batted well in the last game, and he will look to set up a big stand with Lasith Croospulle. Bhanuka Rajapaksa looked good at No. 3, and he must build partnerships with Tim Seifert and Shakib al Hasan in the middle order. Shanaka and Lahiru Samarakoon add firepower to this line-up down the order.
Kasun Rajitha held his nerves in the last game, and he must get early breakthroughs with Vishwa Fernando as Kandy batters looked rusty in the last game. Shakib and Tarbaiz Shamsi are experienced bowlers, and they will look to do well in the middle overs. Shanaka, Lasith Croospulle, and Seekkuge Prasanna add variety to this attack.
Galle Titans Key Players
- Bhanuka Rajapaksa – Bhanuka Rajapaksa recently played in T10 League but struggled to get going. However, he will be more comfortable in the T20 format where he can afford to consume a few balls. Rajapaksa is one of the top performers in LPL with 454 runs.
- Shakib Al Hasan – Shakib Al Hasan will be vital for the Titans owing to his all-round skills. Shakib will add a lot of strength in the middle order while his four overs will be crucial for the team.
- Tim Seifert – Seifert is fresh from a brilliant run in the T10 League where he scored over 200 runs and was one of the tournament’s top run-getters. The batter would like to ride on momentum and have a good season of LPL.
Probable XI: Shevon Daniel, Lasith Croospulle, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Tim Seifert(w), Shakib Al Hasan, Dasun Shanaka(c), Lahiru Samarakoon, Kasun Rajitha, Tabraiz Shamsi, Akila Dananjaya, Richard Ngarava
Galle Titans Squad: Tim Seifert(w), Minod Bhanuka, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Mohammad Mithun, Dasun Shanaka(c), Ben Cutting, Seekkuge Prasanna, Akila Dananjaya, Lahiru Kumara, Kasun Rajitha, Vishwa Fernando, Ashan Priyanjan, Anuk Fernando, Tabraiz Shamsi, Lahiru Samarakoon, Lasith Croospulle, Pasindu Sooriyabandara, Sonal Dinusha, Mohamed Shiraz, Shevon Daniel, Avishka Perera, Sohan de Livera, Chad Bowes
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
Galle Titans vs Jaffna Kings Match Winner
Galle Titans vs Jaffna Kings Match Prediction
Both teams are in fine touch with Kings coming into this game high on confidence and carrying the winning momentum. Their bowlers will pose a tough challenge to the batting might of Dambulla Aura. However, considering the depth in the Aura’s batting lineup and their current form, our prediction gives Dambulla the upper hand in this contest.
While it is a neck-to-neck contest when picking the winner between these two, Dambulla Aura will start as our favorite.
We expect Dambulla Aura to win this match.
