KANDY FALCONS BETTING ANALYSIS

Kandy Falcons may have struggled across the tournament, but all-rounder Dasun Shanaka is doing his best with the ball to rally the side. Shanaka’s right-arm medium-paced variations have proven extremely potent over the course of the campaign with five wickets from just over 11 overs bowled. Utilising the ‘Team – Top Bowler’ here could be the way to go, specifically backing Shanaka via this route.

JAFFNA KINGS BETTING ANALYSIS

The man to invest in currently from a Jaffna perspective is Avishka Fernando. The Kings’ batter boasts 210 runs in four innings played so far across this season’s Lanka Premier League and is currently averaging 52.50. Such numbers warrant bettors to make a move on Fernando and backing him to finish as Jaffna’s top batter in this match is well worth considering.

KANDY FALCONS VS JAFFNA KINGS EXPERT PREDICTION

Two sides at completely opposite ends of the form scale collide and the likelihood is that this script won’t be flipped, when taking into account how strong this Jaffna Kings’ side have looked over the course of the competition so far. Class should tell across the piece and Jaffna should ultimately dominate a Kandy Falcons unit low on confidence and not executing well at all. Back the Kings to come out on top.
