The Lankan Premier League (LPL 2024) is off to a great start. The first five games of the tournament were hosted at the Pallekele Stadium, and now, the action is shifting to Dambulla.

The sixth match of the tournament will be taking place between the Galle Marvels and the Jaffna Kings at the Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium in Dambulla on July 5 at 7:30 PM IST. 

While Galle Marvels will be looking to maintain their position at the top of the table, Jaffna Kings will be fighting to keep themselves within the top three. 

GM vs JK: Team Previews

Galle Marvels

The Galle Marvels have kicked off their campaign in the best way possible. They defeated the Jaffna Kings in the second game of the tournament by five wickets and then followed it up with a seven-run win against the Colombo Strikers.  

The Niroshan Dickwella-led side will be looking to maintain their streak and complete their double over the Kings. 

The batting form of their two openers, Dickewella and Alex Hales, will be encouraging for the team as they can expect a good start from them. Besides the two batters, Isuru Udana has shown great all-round form so far. The management will hope that the form of their bowlers like Maheesh Theekshana, Zahoor Khan and Malsha Tharupathi also continues and help them achieve their third straight win in the tournament.

Jaffna Kings

The Jaffna Kings made a strong comeback in their last match against the Dambulla Strikers after a defeat in the first game against the Galle Marvels. While the Kings lost their first match by five wickets, they bounced back with a four-wicket victory while chasing a challenging total of 192 runs. 

The prime performer for the Kings has been Avishka Fernando with the bat. He has scored half-centuries in both games and is looking in good touch. It is essential for Fernando to continue his form so that the Kings can pick up their second win of the tournament and avenge their previous loss against the Marvels. 

While Dhananjaya de Silva has done a decent job with the ball in the last two games, they need players like Asitha Fernando, Pramod Madushan and Jason Behrendorff to step in and help the team to their second victory of the season.
