The Lanka Premier League has reached its thrilling weeks and in the coming days, we will witness the name of the teams which are moving to the next round. In match number 17, Jaffna Kings will be hosting Galle Titans R. Premadasa Stadium, Colombo on Sunday.
Jaffna Kings are currently in the third position in the point table with a net run rate of +0.288. The team started the campaign with a win and but their performance derailed in the recent fixtures.
Galle Titans are having a disastrous season and they are currently at the bottom of the point table with a net run rate of -0.740. The top bookmakers in India have amazing odds for LPL 2023 with them.
The three-time champions are finding it difficult to dominate the tournament this year. Jaffna Kings have had a good start to the Lanka Premier League 2023 but soon the players started displaying inconsistent performances. David Miller, Charith Asalanka, and Maheesh Theekshana are the key players for the team and the team management will have high expectations from them in the remainder of the tournament.
Skipper Thisara Perera won’t be doing any changes in the team.
Predicted Lineup: Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Charith Asalanka, Towhid Hridoy, David Miller, Shoaib Malik, Nishan Madushka (wk), Thisara Perera (c), Dunith Wellalage, Maheesh Theekshana, Dilshan Madushanka, Nuwan Thushara
Galle Titans have had a mixed start to the Lanka Premier League 2023. They have won two of their five matches and are currently in fourth place on the table. Their batter is struggling to score quick runs and finding it difficult to create stability for the team. The Titans have a weaker bowling attack as compared to the other teams in the tournament and except skipper Dasun Shanaka, no other bowler has been consistent.
Skipper Dasun Shanaka must bring some positivity to the team as their still time to change things in the camp.
Predicted Lineup: Shevon Daniel, Lasith Croospulle, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Tim Seifert (wk), Shakib Al Hasan, Dasun Shanaka (c), Ashan Priyanjan, Lahiru Samarakoon, Kasun Rajitha, Richard Ngarava, Tabraiz Shamsi
Both teams have met previously and Jaffna Kings turned out to be the winners in the previous meeting. Nothing much has changed in the camp of the Titans as they still struggling to win matches. We predict another win for Jaffna Kings on Sunday.
