Kandy Falcons (Source: Twitter/LPL)
Another gripping day awaits us in the Lanka Premier League 2022 as Kandy Falcons lock horns with Jaffna Kings in match number 6 at Pallekele International Cricket Stadium, Pallekele.
It's the clash of the table toppers as the first-placed Falcons with four points will have to taste the challenge of Kings who are second positioned with the same number of points. Both these sides have played an equal number of matches and will be eyeing their third win.
Overall, both these sides have been involved in four matches in the tournament's history with Jaffna-based sides having the upper hand with three triumphs.
The Falcons led by Wanindu Hasaranga will be hoping to continue their winning run as their trump card Carlos Brathwaite will be key to their chances once again. While skipper Thisara Perera might want to bank on the high-class batters of the Kings.
The game is expected to be a high-voltage clash as there would be many big hitters having a go.
- There is no doubt that Wanindu Hasaranga has been the best, not just in Sri Lanka but the entire world. In two games, he has grabbed five wickets with a best of 4/14.
- Sadeera Samarawickrama was in decent form in the last match scoring 62 off 44 balls.
Jaffna without a doubt is a fantastic team with some outstanding players but looking at Kandy Falcons, they have much more fire-power in their ranks which could prove lethal for their opponents.
