With two back-to-back losses, Dambulla Sixers are at the bottom of Lanka Premier League points table. Up next, the Mohammad Nabi-led side will face three-time champions Jaffna Kings, who defeated them by four wickets in the previous match. For Dambulla, Kusal Mendis wreaked havoc in the last match, smashing 102* runs off 52 deliveries. Nuwanidu Fernando and Mark Chapman looked good but their strike rate was a massive concern.

For Jaffna, Avishka Fernando and Charith Asalanka had a stunning day. Fernando smashed 80 runs off 34 deliveries while Asalanka made 50 runs off 36 balls. Courtesy of their impactful knocks, Jaffna picked up the win but only in the final delivery of the match. When these two teams face again on July 6 at Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium another close contest is expected but this time, Dambulla would hope to get the job done to stay in the hunt.

Pitch Report

Batting first will be ideal on the surface in Dambulla. The surface tends to get slower with each over and spinners are likely to get assistance. Anything over 175 runs will be a good total on the surface.
