Jaffna Kings will take on Dambulla Giants in the 4th match of the Lanka Premier League 2021 on Tuesday. Jaffna Kings had a bad start into this tournament as they were thoroughly thrashed by Galle Gladiators by 54 runs. No batter could keep going and they lost wickets at regular intervals of time, which in the end proved costly. They are a quality side, and just need to regroup themselves.
On the contrary, Dambulla Giants had an impressive start in this competition with a 20-run victory over Kandy Warriors. Phil Salt is in a different zone at the moment and played an excellent knock. They were professional throughout the match in all aspects of the game and need to extend the same for the rest of the tournament.
Phil Salt is coming off 64 runs from his previous outing and will look to continue the excellent form in this match as well.
Wanindu Hasaranga picked a couple of crucial scalps in the last game, he will be aiming for something similar once again.
Ramesh Mendis had a great outing in the previous match, wherein he picked 3 wickets and added 22 runs. He will be among the top fantasy picks here.
Nuwan Pradeep bowled pretty well in the last game, and grabbed a total of 3 wickets. He can turn out to be effective once again.
The surface of Colombo provides almost equal assistance to both batters and bowlers. There is a great amount of help on offer for the spinners in particular during the latter phase of the game. Batters will need to spend quality time on the crease to get going here. Since it is a day game, dew might not be a factor to consider much.
The temperature is expected to hover around 25°C, with 60% humidity and 12-14 km/hr wind speed. There are almost negligible chances of precipitation during the game.
