DHG vs JSK Team Previews

Dambulla Giants

In the last season, Dambulla Giants were in the 4th place on the points table but finished 3rd as they managed to make it up to the preliminary finals.

Phil Salt was the top-scorer for the Giants last season but will not be available this time around. In his absence, the batting department will be relying on youngsters like Haider Ali, Shevon Daniel, Kalana Perera, and Chamindu Wickramasinghe. Dasun Shanaka will once again lead the side. The team has brought in some experienced players in the form of Sikandar Raza and Bhanuka Rajapaksa.

Other big names missing from last year’s squad include Imran Tahir, who was the leading wicket-taker for the Giants, Nuwan Pradeep, Najibullah Zadran, and Niroshan Dickwella. Overall, the team appears to be quite lacking in quality players, and too much responsibility will be on the shoulders of young and inexperienced players. 


Dambulla Giants Playing 11

Shevon Daniel, Jordan Cox, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Dasun Shanaka, Ramesh Mendis, Lahiru Madushanka, Sikandar Raza, Lahiru Kumara, Chathuranga Silva, Noor Ahmad, Paul Van Meekeren.

Jaffna Kings

The defending champions have begun their latest campaign on a positive note, defeating the Galle Gladiators in their opening game.

Batting first, the top-order failed to provide the team with a good start. But the middle-order batsmen rose to the challenge and stabilized the innings. Dhananjaya de Silva, Shoaib Malik, and Dunith Wellalage all chipped in to take the Kings to a respectable total of 137.

The bowling was top-notch as the bowlers prevented the Gladiators’ batsmen from settling in. Leading the attack was Binura Fernando, who picked up 3 wickets, while Vijayakanth bowled a superb spell of 2-20 in his 4 overs. All eyes will now be on the performances of the big names in the squad.

Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Thisara Perera, and Avishka Fernando did not have any significant impact on this game but will be raring to go against the inexperienced side of Dambulla.

Avishka Fernando, Ashan Randika, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Dhananjaya de Silva, Thisara Perera, James Fuller, Shoaib Malik, Maheesh Theekshana, Vijayakanth Viyaskanth, Dunith Wellalage, Zaman Khan.

Pitch and Conditions

The track at Hambantota is a good one to bat on, as it has a good and consistent bounce. The batsmen will be able to go through with their shots. However, as the match progresses, it will get a tad difficult due to the rough patches, which will help the bowlers, especially the spinners, get some movement.

The weather is expected to be cloudy and quite humid throughout the day, with temperatures ranging from 25 to 31 degrees Celsius. 


DHG vs JSK Betting Tips

We are backing the Jaffna Kings to win here. The opposition simply lacks the quality of players that can cause trouble for the Kings here. While Sikandar Raza, Dasun Shanaka, and Bhanuka Rajapaksa are good players individually, they do not have enough support to see the team through.

On the contrary, the Kings seem to have struck the perfect balance of players, and should not have any problems winning this match.

Bet on the Jaffna Kings to win.
