Jaffna Kings (JK) square off with Galle Marvels (GM) at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Pallekele on Tuesday, July 2.

The two teams will look to start their campaign on a winning note in the Lankan Premier League (LPL) 2024. Jaffna Kings finished fourth on the points table last season before losing to eventual champions B-Love Kandy in the Eliminator. The Kings are going to be led by Charith Asalanka, while Avishka Gunawardene is the head coach.

Meanwhile, Galle Titans have been renamed to Galle Marvels after the acquisition of a new group. They were placed at No. 2 on the points table after the league stage before going down to B-Love Kandy in Qualifier 2. The Marvels are going to be spearheaded by Niroshan Dickwella, who will work closely with head coach Graham Ford.

Probable Playing XIs

Jaffna Kings:

Kusal Mendis (WK), Pathum Nissanka, Avishka Fernando, Rilee Rossouw, Charith Asalanka (C), Dhananjaya de Siva, Fabian Allen, Vijayakanth Viyaskanth, Noor Ahmad, Jason Behrendorff, Asitha Fernando.

Probable Best Batter of the match

Pathum Nissanka would be one of the batters to watch out for. He has recently been one of Sri Lanka’s most consistent players. He can play the sheet anchor’s role thanks to his compact technique but he also has a wide range of shots that help him up the ante when required. Last season, he scored 193 runs from eight matches, including two half-centuries. The right-handed batter would want to be more prolific with the willow this year.

Probable Best Bowler of the match

Maheesh Theekshana could play a key role for Galle Marvels in the upcoming clash. The mystery spinner’s ability to pick wickets at various match stages makes him an invaluable asset for any team. Theekshana has the experience of playing 148 T20Is and has picked up 151 wickets at an average of 24.74 and an economy rate of 6.68. His four overs will be crucial for the Marvels.
