Lanka T20 League 2024

Match 11: KFL vs JK

 

Preview

The 11th match of the Lanka T20 League 2024 will be played between the last-placed Kandy Falcons and the first-placed Jaffna Kings. The game is scheduled to be played at the Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium on Tuesday, July 9.

It will be a tough job for KFL as they face a stronger opponent who also has a proven track record of winning three out of the last five head-to-head matches. The Wanindu Hasaranga-led side won only one of the four fixtures so far. His team would be entering this contest facing three consecutive losses and having won only their inaugural match of the tournament. Their last defeat was against Galle Marvels by a margin of 6 wickets. 

Jaffna on the other side are at the top of the Lanka T20 League 2024 points table with only one loss, that too in their first match against Galle Marvels by 5 wickets. They will be high on confidence as they enter this contest having won three back-to-back games. Their previous game was against Dambulla Sixers where they posted a target of 218 runs and later restricted the opponents to only 188 runs.

Match Prediction

Jaffna Kings have won three of their last five encounters against Kandy Falcons. They are also performing exceptionally well in this season. However, KFL are the defending champions and cannot be taken so lightly. Things haven’t been in their best form right now and will struggle against an in-form team like JK. Hence we think Jaffna has an edge and will emerge victorious in this match.
