The result of the match doesn’t make any impact for both sides however they look to finish the league stages with a win to keep them fresh for the playoffs. Jaffna Kings won their previous contest against Galle Gladiators by 16 runs to script their 5th win in this tournament. They are placed 2nd in the standings with 10 points. Avishka Fernando and Sadeera Samarawickrama are their best batters in this tournament scoring more than 450 runs between them. Afif Hossain who was a replacement for Tom Kohler Cadmore struck a fluent 54 runs in his first game against Gladiators. Bowlers have been brilliant right throughout the tournament giving necessary breakthroughs whenever needed.
Colombo Stars struggled to keep the consistency going in this competition and still managed to progress to the playoffs which is a big relief. They lost badly against Kandy Falcons in their previous encounter by 9 wickets which is huge in terms of margin. Batting first they were bowled out for 106 runs with skipper Angelo Matthews top scoring for the side with responsible 41 runs. They need to adapt to the conditions quickly as possible and must fix their eleven ahead of the playoffs.
