Jaffna Kings Team News & Playing 11

JKS Team News

After Thisara Perera led Jaffna Kings to a fourth place finish in the 2023 Sri Lanka Premier League, Charith Asalanka has been announced as the team captain ahead of this year’s campaign. They were knocked out by eventual winners in the Qualifier 1 last year.

JKS Team Batting

We can expect Kusal Mendis to open the batting for Jaffna Kings with most pundits expecting South Africa’s T20 specialist Rilee Rossouw to join him. Asalanka will bat in the top five and is likely to want to show an attacking mentality whilst at the crease.

JKS Team Bowling

After breaking his leg in March, Australia’s tall left-arm pace bowler Jason Behrendorff is expected to return to action in this tournament. Tabraiz Shamsi is not anticipated to be available so soon after the end of the T20 World Cup but slow left-arm spinner Fabian Allen will be a threat with the ball.

JKS Team Form

Jaffna Kings lost their last three games in the 2023 Sri Lanka Premier League.

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

Galle Marvels Team News & Playing 11

GAM Team News

There is a feeling of unfinished business for Galle who finished in second place in the group stage last year but then failed to progress to the final during the knockouts. Niroshan Dickwella will captain the team in place of Dasun Shanaka who has departed for Kandy.

GAM Team Batting

Galle Marvels have two powerful and aggressive batters at the top of the order in Bhanuka Rajapaksa and Alex Hales. If those two can stay unbroken for six or seven overs then the Marvels could well be unstoppable in this match.

GAM Team Bowling

There is a good amount of variation in Galle Marvels’ bowling attack with the pace of Lahiru Kumara likely to be well complimented by the spin of Maheesh Theekshana and Jeffrey Vandersay. Dwaine Pretorius will offer good pace and height.

GAM Team Form

Galle Marvels won their last two group stage games last season but then lost both of their play-off fixtures.

Galle Marvels Predicted Playing 11

Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Alex Hales, Niroshan Dickwella (c) (wk), Dwaine Pretorius, Janith Liyanage, Malsha Tharupathi, Dhananjaya Lakshan, Maheesh Theekshana, Lahiru Kumara, Isuru Udana, Jeffrey Vandersay

🏆 Jaffna Kings vs Galle Marvels Prediction

Both sides have assembled strong line-ups with impressive overseas openers likely to be at the top of the order for the Kings and for the Marvels. We expect this game to be decided by which of the bowling units is most accurate. Galle Marvels have an excellent bowling attack and we are backing them to win this match.
