Lanka T20 League 2023 

Match 13: CS vs JK

 

Preview 

Colombo Strikers will square off against Jaffna Kings in the 13th match of the Lanka T20 League 2023. The game is scheduled at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium on Tuesday, August 8. 

Colombo have experienced ups and downs in this season of the Lanka T20 League so far. The Niroshan Dickwella-led team has won and lost two games each this season and will be looking to improve in the next matches in order to qualify for the playoffs. However, in their most recent match, they completely destroyed Galle Titans. Pakistan skipper batsman, Babar Azam, smashed a century, while his opening pair, Pathum Nissanka, scored 54 runs off 40 deliveries.

As a result, they have the necessary motivation before they face Jaffna on August 8. Notably, JK thrashed them earlier in the season, thus CS cannot afford to underestimate them. In the meantime, their bowlers are in phenomenal form, so it should be an entertaining match for the viewers.

Pitch and Weather Report

The Pallekele International Cricket Stadium favours the spinners which could turn out to be helpful while restricting the rival side from getting to a big score. However, the pitch also allows batters to play out their shots when they are set. The par score of this pitch is 150 runs and it will surely be a competitive total for both sides to compete.
