Jaffna Kings vs Galle Titans Match Pitch Report

The pitch at the venue in Colombo helped the team batting first in the first leg of the LPL matches. Hence, batting first should be the way forward for teams

What to expect: 

Team news:

Jaffna Kings: Jaffna Kings have 6 points from 7 matches and need to win this last game to have a chance of finishing in the top 4. They lead 1-0 in the head-to-head wins against Galle Titans this season.

After a brilliant win over Colombo Strikers chasing down 150 runs with 6 wickets in hand, the Kings crumbled in the very next game. On a good batting wicket, Jaffna Kings were chasing a 179-run target and found themselves 3 down for 16 in the 5th over.

They were not in the game at least in the first half of their run chase having lost half of the side for just 90 runs. However, Shoaib Malik and Thisara Perera led the fightback in the lower order as Kings fell short by 8 runs.

This is great news for Jaffna Kings, who, just like their opposition have some big names in the middle and lower order. In the top 3, they’ve got Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Chris Lynn, both of whom are known for big-hitting abilities.

With Malik, Miller, and Perera in the lower end, Jaffna Kings pack a strong punch in the batting department. They need Dunith Wellalage to come through in this match as he holds the key to success in the bowling department.

Mahesh Theekshana, Dilshan Madhushanka, and N Thushara are other promising bowlers in this lineup. Though they haven’t been very consistent and failed in their last outing, they’ve got the ability to put the opposition under pressure.

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: Galle Titans kicked off their Lanka Premier League season with back-to-back wins including a win in the super over. However, since then, they have lost 4 back to back matches and now find themselves at the bottom of the points table.

In spite of players like Tim Seifert, Chad Bowes, and Shakib Al Hasan in the top 4, Titans ended up with just 133 for 9 batting first in their last match. Dasun Shanka hasn’t lived up to the finisher’s role in the lower order either.

The problems are plenty in the Titans squad and there seems to be no one capable of leading a comeback. After Bhanuka Rajapaksa failed to get going in the middle order, the Titans replaced him in the last game.

Given the significance of this match and the quality of the bowling in the opposition, Titans should be considering getting him back in the XI. There is a lot of experience in the middle order and that is the only hope Titans have in the batting department.

Not just that, but they also need their star bowlers to start delivering. Shakib Al Hasan will be the key player along with Kasun Rajitha and Tabraiz Shamsi. Though they have variety in the bowling attack, it is up to these three to make an impact.

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 vs Galle Titans 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.

Galle Titans will expect runs from their senior batters Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Tim Seifert, and Dasun Shanaka.

Jaffna Kings vs Galle Titans Match Both Team Top Team Bowlers

Jaffna’s bowling will rest on the shoulders of spinners Dunith Wellalage, Mahesh Theekshana, and veteran Shoaib Malik.

Kasun Rajitha, Tabraiz Shamsi, and Shakib Al Hasan will be the top bowlers for the team. Shakib and Shamsi, especially will be key owing to the conditions being helpful for bowlers.
