Dambulla Sixers Team News & Playing 11

DAS Team News

It was a losing start for the 2023 Sri Lanka Premier League winners who opened this tournament with a six wicket defeat with 16 balls remaining against Kandy Falcons. Mustafizur Rahman was not at his best in that game but we expect him to retain his place for this match.

DAS Team Batting

All of Dambulla Sixers’ top four struggled against Kandy Falcons but they are talented so it would be no surprise to see one of Danushka Gunathilaka, Kusal Perera, Nuwanidu Fernando or Towhid Hridoy deliver. Mark Chapman and Chamindu Wickramsinghe both come into this game after unbeaten half-centuries on Monday.

DAS Team Bowling

Dilshan Madushanka and captain Mohammad Nabi both went wicketless in the opening match but both have excellent T20 records so we expect them to respond well in this fixture. Nuwan Thushara will be looking to strike early again after dismissing Nuwan Thushara with only the second ball of the innings against the Falcons.

DAS Team Form

It was not a poor performance from Dambulla Sixers in Match 1 but they will need to improve with both bat and ball in this game.

Dambulla Sixers Predicted Playing 11

Danushka Gunathilaka, Kusal Perera (wk), Nuwanidu Fernando, Towhid Hridoy, Mark Chapman, Chamindu Wickramasinghe, Mohammad Nabi (c), Akila Dananjaya, Nuwan Thushara, Mustafizur Rahman, Dilshan Madushanka

Jaffna Kings Team News & Playing 11

JKS Team News

After posting 177/7 and setting a target of 178 for Galle Marvels to chase in Match 2, Jaffna Kings lost on the final ball of the match when Asitha Fernando was hit for four. However, they were competitive throughout the clash and they will fancy their chances in this fixture. 

JKS Team Batting

There should be plenty of confidence in the Jaffna Kings batting line-up ahead of this match after half-centuries for both Pathum Nissanka and Avishka Fernando as well as a quick-fire 33 runs from 15 balls from captain Charith Asalanka. Rilee Rossouw and Kusal Mendis both missed out and will be keen to contribute.

JKS Team Bowling

The spin duo of Dhanajaya de Silva and Fabian Allen both picked up two wickets in the defeat against Galle Marvels with the pace attack not as penetrative. We expect similar in this game although Jason Behrendorff will be a threat throughout.

JKS Team Form

Jaffna Kings lost by five wickets in their opener but were particularly strong with the bat.

Jaffna Kings Predicted Playing 11

Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Mendis (wk), Avishka Fernando, Rilee Rossouw, Charith Asalanka (c), Dhananjaya de Silva, Fabian Allen, Vijayakanth Viyaskanth, Pramod Madushan, Asitha Fernando, Jason Behrendorff
