The 9th match of the Lanka Premier League 2021 is all set to take place between Jaffna Kings and Colombo Stars at R. Premadasa Stadium on December 10. The match will played at R Premadasa Stadium, Colombo and it will begin at 7.30 PM IST. While Kings will enter this contest on the back of a victory, Stars lost to Dambulla in their last game of the league.
Kings have also won their two of the three games so far wherein their last victory came through the DLS method in a rain-interrupted game. Stars have won one and lost one game in the Lankan T20 League so far. Though the pitch clearly supported the team batting first in the tournament early on, of late, teams which have batted second have also been able to pull the game in their favour. However, bowlers might have a little difficult time on the field. The temperature in Colombo is expected to hover between 24 and 29 degrees Celsius. There is rain predicted in the afternoon.
Hasaranga has been going in a fine rhythm of late regardless of the format. The star spinner is expected to come well in the game against Stars as well. Though he went expensive in the last game, he can be expected to better up his records real soon. The Jaffna Kings defeated the Kandy Warriors in their last game and will be riding with confidence. The Colombo Stars lost to the Dambulla Giants and will be looking to get back to winning ways.
So, all in all, the Jaffna Kings look a well-settled unit and are expected to carry forward their winning momentum.
