With this win, the side has kept hope alive for a place in the next round. They had lost to B-Love Kandy earlier, and Perara would like to see a better show from his players.
Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Nishan Madushka batted well in the last game, and the pair will look to deliver a good start in this game. The middle order is formidable, and they will like contributions from Charith Asalanka, Towhid Hridoy, and Shoaib Malik. David Miller and Thisara Perera add firepower to this batting line-up.
Perera must bowl better spells sharing the new ball with Mahesh Theekshana, as the Kandy batsmen are in superb form. Dilshan Madushanka and Nuwan Thushara put up a great show in the last game, and they will look to bowl tight spells in the middle overs. The side will expect a good show from Dunith Wellalage and Malik in the supporting role.

B-Love Kandy: Wanindu Hasaranga’s team comes here in top gear. They have demolished their opponents in the last three games. In the last game, it was an 89-run win for the side against the Galle Titans. They will look to continue with the same momentum and book a berth in the playoffs by winning this game.
Fakhar Zaman is in good form and will look to deliver a good start alongside Mohammad Haris in this game. Dinesh Chandimal played well in the last game, making the middle order strong with Angelo Mathews and Hasaranga. Asif Ali, Isuru Udana, and Sahan Arachchige make it a formidable batting line-up.

Jaffna Kings vs B-Love Kandy Match Both Team Top Batsmen
Jaffna will rest their hopes on Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Towhid Hridoy, and Charith Asalanka. All three batters have been inconsistent but when it comes to skills, the three are the best in the team and most of the runs have to come from these three batters. David Miller can also be handy, but he bats too low.
Fakhar Zaman, Dinesh Chandimal, and Wanindu Hasaranga will be the key batters for Kandy. Zaman and Chandimal have consistently scored 20s, 30s, and 40s for the team in the recent few games while Hasaranga comes into the match with two fifties in the last two games.
