Match 15 of the ongoing Lanka Premier League will witness the Jaffna Stallions taking on the Dambulla Viiking at the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium in Hambantota. It is the second match of the day on exhilarating Monday 7th December.
Both these teams have had a similar share of fortune run this season. They have won four games each and lost one and eye to enter the playoffs with one vital win. With equal points in the bag, the eye for a game-changer. The last time these two teams met this season, the Stallions thrashed the Viikings with a 66 runs victory. Skipper Thisara Perera played a vital knock of incredible 97 runs of just 44 balls to take his team at 218.
Even though both teams are fairly evenly matched on paper, today match prediction envisages, Thisara Perera led Jaffna Stallions will be tough competitors in this game of exciting cricket. However, these teams would pave the way for an enthralling game on Monday. Thus betting tips claim, Jaffna Stallions will emerge victoriously.
Galle Gladiators win this game.
The Dambulla Viiking, led by Captain Dasun Shanaka, have been fairly remarkable with the bat. Samit Patel and Niroshan Dickwella have contributed comprehensively, while Malinda Pushpakumara and Anwar Ali have led the bowling roster. Today match prediction states that their middle-order has outshone right through the competition. The Viiking will look to withstand their momentum before the playoffs as per the betting tips.
On a similar note, the Jaffna Stallions would also look to assimilate momentum after a rough loss to the Colombo Kings last week. Match tips say they shouldn’t be too worried, though. With skipper Thisara Perera and Avishka Fernando attacking all cylinders, the Stallions are trivial favorites heading into this match. Jaffna Stallions will heavily want Shoaib Malik and Johnson Charles to pull up their socks before the business end of the season, as predicted by match tips.
The venue, Pitch Report, and Toss Prediction:
The pitch at Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium has considerably slowed down from the beginning of the tournament. As this is the second game of the day, betting tips say that the spinner will have a say in the proceedings. They should extract considerable turn off the wicket. And trouble the batters in the middle overs.
Despite the bowlers making variations, the batsmen shouldn’t be shy, and we shall witness them attacking from the start of the innings. Today match prediction claims chasing will be difficult on the used pitch. And thus, the skippers will choose to bat first on winning the toss.
Key Players to watch:
Opening batsman Upul Tharanga, Captain Dasun Shanaka, and the English all-rounder Samit Patel of Dambulla Viikings will be vital players in the game match tips.
Betting tips envisage that Pakistani veteran batsman Shoaib Malik, leg spinner Wanindu Hasaranga, and skipper Thisara Perera of the Jaffna Stallions will be the key players to watch out for in this game.
