At the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Pallekele, the eighth match of the Lanka Premier League 2022 will feature the Jaffna Kings and the Dambulla Aura.
Both teams have had different tournament starts.
Notably, the Jaffna Kings prevailed in the prior match between the two teams.
Dambulla Aura will need to quickly improve after losing both of their games so far this season. The team led by Dasun Shanaka is currently in fourth place in the points standings and will need to raise their net run rate as well.
With two victories in two games, Jaffna Kings are sitting in second place on the standings and are feeling good about themselves. Both teams have quality match winners in their lineups, making this a fascinating contest.
Venue: Pallekele International Cricket Stadium, Pallekele
Date & Time: December 11, 7:30 PM IST
The Pallekele pitch is often on the faster side, thus it will be challenging to defend scores there. Especially with the due factor coming into play later, the captain who wins the toss will aim to bowl first.
